Yes, in the new server running with \timing it consumes 5.6 seconds and in the old server it consumes 25 seconds.

Is connected to full 100Mb, it transfers many things quick to clients. Is running Apache adn JBoss, transfer rate is good, I did scp to copy many archives and is as quick as the old server.

I have no idea how to continue researching this problem. Now I'm going to do some networks tests.
