I have a .net web application on IIS and the site was running very slow(on AWS EC2 medium server 2012). CPU usage and RAM usage are both down very low.
I started up another EC2(medium server 2008) and put half the users on the new EC2 and now the site is dramatically faster for both sets of users.
I'm at a loss to what might cause this. There is only a a couple hundred users total. What are some things I can look into to solve why this is happening so I can move back to one server?
Edit: Also, there should not be much file i/o as all file downloads and uploads are on amazon S3 and not on the server storage.
