What are the rated data transfer rates of the disks on the two
machines? While the new machine's disks *should* be at least as fast,
there are a range of variables and so no guarantee. As a basic test,
try simple file transfers (e.g., using scp) between these two
machines and a third one. Do both large files, and groups of small
ones. You need to keep as many variables as possible constant in the
test - e.g., same network connectivity from these servers to testing
machine, etc.
