Performance is determined by workload and capacity. A slow computer might perform adequately when it has a very light workload. In contrast, the performance of an extremely powerful computer might suffer when challenged by an excessive workload. In operations between two computers on a network, the workload that can be handled effectively will be limited by the component with the least capacity, whether it is one of the computers or the network connection itself.
As a general rule, you can improve performance by making changes to the workload, the capacity, or both.
