vendor_id       : GenuineIntel
cpu family      : 15
model           : 4
model name      : Intel(R) Xeon(TM) CPU 2.80GHz

shows that it is a P4 Xeon, which sucks compared to:

vendor_id       : GenuineIntel
cpu family      : 6
model           : 15
model name      : Genuine Intel(R) CPU                  @ 2.66GHz

which is a Core 2 based Xeon.  The tuning required by the P4 is quite 
different than the Core 2, and it generally performs more poorly due to 
the length of the pipeline and the expense of pipeline flushes.
