I'm in the process of converting a Classic ASP web site from an older server to a newer, faster box. Both servers run Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Standard Edition.
The new box runs about 20-25% slower than the bold box even though the new one is much more powerful. The one caveat is that when the new box is first re-started it loads the pages 30% faster than the old box for 60-90 seconds.
After the 1-2 minute "reboot window" it then goes back to serving up the pages 20-25% slower than the old box. The newer box has integrated FTP through IIS versus FileZilla for the older machine.
I suspect something is still loading or configuring in that reboot window, but I'm out of ideas on what is slowing the box down. I tried turning off the FTP, but that did not help.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
