Driver performance reduces from W2008 server to Win 2012 Server

I have the proprietary driver which I run on Win 2008 Server and on Win 2012 Server. When the Que-depth is increased from 64 to 256 there is no reduction in performance on Win 2008 but reduces considerably on Win 2012. Vtune analysis on both systems give prettymuch the same results.

What are the symptoms of reduced performance?

When the Que-depth is 64  the driver performs about 720K I/Os per second

and when Que depth is increased to 256 there is a  reduction to 620K I/Os per second

Vtune indicated some functions which is taking time,even after ixing them it is still performing bad.

BTW, have you tried General Exploration analysis in VTune? It may highlight some HW issues (look to red cells).

iliyapolak, can you please share your thoughts which useful XPerf features are missing in VTune?

@iliyapolak , Yes Xperf was useful , made some changes and was effective. Thank you!

I think that Xperf models or measures betters Win OS environment and its interaction with the software,although it is not probably the main purpose of the VTune.

For example time CPU spent in DPC routine.
