What additional workloads (both Sql Server and any other service, like file shares, IIS etc) the server is doing? What kind of storage the server has? Are the execution plans the same? – vonPryz Apr 1 '14 at 11:22
Get the query monitor going on the server to see what other work it is doing, likewise the OS process monitor. – Ian Ringrose Apr 1 '14 at 12:13
