@scottalanmiller said in Comparing Server CPU Capabilities?:
What kind of processing are you doing that is eating up so much CPU today?
I have several Windows Server systems using different DB technologies, like my ERP (not even sure what the DB is) and MS SQL (WSUS, PRTG, PDQ, Veeam BR, Veeam One, etc). FileMaker (more RAM intensive) and MySQL (Fishbowl Inventory). I have a 2008 R2 RDS server, that is being migrated to Server 2016. Based on my experience with the current environment, Server 2016 uses more CPU than previous versions- Especially during Windows updates. I also have 3 Windows file and print servers, but they are more disk than CPU.
On one host, the most CPU intensive are a Ruckus wireless controller and PRTG monitoring server. - Currently, showing as 31% and 36% CPU utilization, respectively.
On the other, the most CPU intensive are PDQ Inventory/Deploy, Veeam BR and Veeam One and the current RDS server. Currently showing as 30%, 33% and 11% CPU utilization, respectively.
