I am working with a device on a metal cutting machine that communicates using TCP/IP or UDP over Ethernet. I wrote a test program that writes and read ten registers and times how long it takes for the process to take.
On a Windows 7 Professional computer, the test takes on average 200 milliseconds. On a Windows 10 computer, the same test takes on average 320 milliseconds. This is with the same hardware as we installed Windows 7 and Windows 10 on two different hard drives and swap.
My question is what if anything, can I configure on Windows 10 to allow the test to be near the same speed it that it is run using Windows 7? Or is Windows 10 just fundamentally slower. Our suspicion is that it is something security related but we have failed to find any setting that improves the Windows 10 test.
