I have been doing some testing for Harish, Sankar and Chen in regards to the time it takes for headers to display in Evolution using SOAP/GroupWise. I found a user that had 430 messages in their Mailbox and did some benchmark testing. The results are fairly flat, and seem to be roughly the same no matter what time of day they are performed. I timed from a cold start, from the point the UI fully displayed up to the time the messages appeared. The results are below:
I'm hoping that we can shave some time off these numbers because that would make Evolution appear to be running "faster". Right now our biggest issue is load time of calendar events, and we seem to be making progress in that area.
