Ray + Fast API Performance Issues

Hi I am using Ray with Fast API where users can request the API to get the prediction score.
Could you please help me with the following:

I recently moved from a 2 core machine to 24 core machine.

**Before **:
CPU(s): 2
On-line CPU(s) list: 0,1
Thread(s) per core: 2
Core(s) per socket: 1
Socket(s): 1

Time Taken to to predict to call the below was 2 to 3 Milliseconds

# main.....
class Executor:
    def __init__(self):
        ray.init(_node_ip_address="", ignore_reinit_error=True, num_cpus=24, include_dashboard=False)
        self._models = self.prepare()

    def prepare(self):
        return all_models

    async def predict(self, request):
       for mname in request.model_names:
                prediction = self._models[mname].predict.remote(request.context)
        predictions = [ray.get(each_model) for each_model in model_remote]
        return {"predictions": predictions}

class MyModel():

    def __init__(self, *args, **kwargs):
        self.logger = get_logger()
        self.init_model(*args, **kwargs)

    def init_model(self, *args, **kwargs):
        self._model = load(join(<model_path>))
        self.model = load(join(<model path>))

    async def predict(self, data):
            hpd = pd.Series({.......},
                                    dtype='int32').values.reshape(1, -1)
            start_time = datetime.datetime.now()
            pred = self.model.predict_proba(self._model.transform(hpd))[0]
           return : float(max(pred))

After (:
CPU(s): 24
On-line CPU(s) list: 0-23
Thread(s) per core: 2
Core(s) per socket: 12
Socket(s): 1

Time Taken to to predict to call the below was 30 to 40 Milliseconds


I tried changing the Ray num_cpus but on the new server its taking more time. Even though the number of cores are more now why does predict_proba call is taking more time ?
