Made some progress.

TEST4 1000 x 100

Old Server 2008 (circa 2010) hardware - 16.5 seconds +/- a bit
First VM Server 2012 with 24TB NAS - 34.5 seconds +/- a bit

The guru and I decided on Saturday to move the VM to other storage. Tried the VMWare "manual" move. Didn't go well and the virtual dongle thought that it was on a different server.

Installed and used the VMWare tool to "move to different" storage. Picked the "failover" server because it's a bit newer and has lots of space. Left it running and went home.

The move left the VM powered down. Once up, I could see that this method was vastly superior to the manual move. All the changes done on Friday and Saturday come thru and Comet was ready to go.


2nd VM on local drives (10k) - 11 on 1st pass, 14.8 on 2nd 11.22 +/- a bit on the 3rd and 4th. Not sure why the odd ball. But still better than the old server.

Qtilities option 15 to count records. The JAF file has 2.3 million records and eight secondary indexes.

Old server - 6.0 minutes, then 3 minutes 12 seconds. Caching kicks in on the second pass
1st VM with NAS - 9 min 3 seconds then 6 min 20 seconds
2nd VM on local drives - 3min 23 seconds then 1 min 55 seconds

This is what I'd hoped for.

So, speed issues to resolves with the NAS. Going to try fiber to connect NAS, switch and primary server.

Appreciate Robert's suggestions and will give them a try.

Meanwhile, Comet will go live where it's at and replicate from the "failover" to the primary.
