>First, definitely make sure the performance plan is set to high performance:
I can confirm settings are set to High.
Hyperthreading is disabled.
NUMA is disabled.
>Second, what are the number of concurrent reloads?
We have it set to 35
>What are the specific chips in use here? Are they on the recommendation list?
Intel Xeon E5-4520 v4. Not on the recommendation list as far as I can see.
...which might be the reason.
In the coming weeks we are receiving new servers that are spec'd the same as our 2-socket 20 core machines (Xeon Gold 51xx CPUs, on the whitelist!)
When those new machines arrive, these 4-socket machines will be taken off production and placed into a dev environment for dev work only. I was just wanting to see if we could make any more tweaks so I don't have to dev on slow machines, but this might be as good as it gets because the configuration is way off from the recommendation list?
