How do I improve Sharepoint Workflow performance time


I have setup a workflow that I start manually in SharePoint that simply changes the status of a column in an item.

I have a problem with the first approval takes roughly 50 seconds to start, but after that they are all quick.

Is there any way to improve this startup time?

Not necessarily. I'd say calling a page that displayed a workflow status might do it.

This is just a result of the necessary services being initialized. There's no great way to avoid this.

You could try a warm up script, but in general they're best avoided;

yeah, I tried that already.  would that load the workflow library as well into memory?

Any other suggestions?

I would say that spwakeup is the best solution at the moment.
