I have 2 servers running the exact same Classic ASP code with Access DBs (yes, not ideal, but it is what it is, for now).
1) Xeon 5520 @ 2.27 GHz (6 GB Memory)
2) Xeon E5-2620 @ 2.00 GHz (2 processors, 32 GB Memory)
For most pages the newer E5-2620 processes the pages between 10-15% faster. On pages requiring heavy and/or multiple complicated access stored procedures (queries) the older 5520 does a much better job.
I believe the servers are configured nearly identically. My question: is it possible that the newer, multi-processor server is not as good at handling Classic ASP as the older single processor?
Is there a configuration difference that needs to be in place that I'm missing since I'm shooting for identical implementations?
