I have an API based Application, no database. When I run it on my dev server is it 3 times faster than when I move it to production. Both environments are windows running 16GB of memory. The production server (Google Cloud Platform 4 CPU build 2.3Ghz) and the dev is a physical box (2 CPU 3.2 GHz) both running Intel Xeon.
Could the difference in CPU speed make the code in production run an average of 2.5s while the code in dev is averaging 600ms for the same call? All of the Lucee admin settings are also the same.
Is there a way to improve the speed in the production environment?
