We recently just migrated our Patch for Windows Server instance from SQL 2008 R2 on a physical server to a new virtual SQL 2016 server. It "seems" slower, but this could be just my imagination. I am wondering is the scan times are stored somewhere so that I can compare previous scan to new ones (for the same machine groups). When I look at a scan, it shows me a "date\time", but I don't know if this is a start or stop time...plus I would still need the other value to help me figure the total time it takes.
Does anyone know if this data is available anywhere?
We don't track scan times in the database or UI. You can view scan logs and figure it out but the scan logs are often rolled over with each scan. Did you give the new VM plenty of RAM and CPU? What else is running on it?
That being said, you could run our DPDTrace tool to scan from the new server and maybe the old server or at least a different server. That may show a scan time difference, but it's not an apples to apples test since there is no database used during the scans.
