Analysis of Group Policy and Impact on Logon Times

Hi guys,
I hope you are well and can assist.

I wish to undertake indepth analysis of the impact of group policies on logon time.

I want to glean measurements such as the cost of a gpo in terms of time taken for the gpo to process, which impacts logon time.

Have you guys done such analysis in the past, and if so, is it possible to share some information on approach and data metrics to consider?

I also want to identify what CSEs (client-side extensions) each gpo setting is "owned" by, to reflect what approximate impact this will have on logon time.

Any help greatly appreciated.

You could  though timing is complicated/variable have a low predictability.  I.e, using a login script for the user on the "first" and another use GPO "last" that will record the event. The difference in times between the two ...........
