OMG text processing performance 6.7 - 9.5

I don’t think you read too much into differences of as little as 10ticks - the error in time measurement for a single run would be too high.
It’s seems to make sense that vms would do the same task slower than the machine that they run on so I don’t think that’s a very interesting comparison.
Your windows workstation is an i3 - I suspect it only has two cores - SSDs whilst fast can only do one thing at a time. When you are running the database and client on the same machine I suspect there’s more contention there then when client and server are separate machines...
The code on the LC side is the same (engine and client drivers) so it’s almost certainly hardware / OS causing the difference.

My mac is an i7 running at 2.3. Also my Mac is clamped to 100mb networking due to the nature of our VIOP phones. The Standalone Workstation is gigabit and as I mentioned IS the SQL server itself.

>> That's exactly my point. It is decidedly NOT like-with-like, but it has nothing to do with virtualization. The Windows LC is running very much slower than the Mac OS, and I'm not blaming LC. It may be Windows itself. I disabled my Antivirus. Got it down to 57 ticks.
