The three main resources are

(a) CPU, the performance of this will depends on clockspeed, memory, cache, number, whether program supports multiple processors

(b) IO, input/output such as disks, different disks take different time

(c) network resources, although you could put this under IO

One thing to look at is while your program is running, how much idle time is being taken during waits for IO?

If you had spare machines of the same spec you could also try linux on sparc or solaris on x86 to compare.
