I'm not sure what is going on, but I have two Vista x64 RTM machines..
one at work, one at home.
The one at work is a Dell 380, PD 2.8ghz, 3gb ram, 800fsb, 533mhz
ram.. ~69% memory used... My primary harddrive here is a SATAI (1.5 gb/
s) seagate 80gb drive, with a SATAII secondary..
At home its a Dual Core 2 , 1.86ghz, 2gb ram (800mhz), ~70% memory
used.. Primary HD is Seagate 160gb Sata II (3.0 gb/s) , with secondary
D a 500gb hitachi 3.0 gb/s sataII, and a few other 400gb seagate 1.5
I run the Reliability and Perf. Monitor on both pcs (while stuff is
open, but not running/using alot of cpu time)...
At work.. my physical disk counters show %disk time mean of 13, max of
75, with a avg disk queue length of 0.79 mean, max of 5...
At home the %disk time max is around 200%.. the disk queue length mean
is 4, with a max of 22.
In both cases I have the OS managing the swap file as well.
I have noticed that my home PC runs alittle slower (opening of dialogs
and boxes slower to come up) than the work one (which shouldnt be the
case, esp with sataII and dual core)..
Anyone know of things to try to fix the disk queue length bottleneck?
Ram doesnt seem to be the issue either...
