The first scan in SpadeEye is always slower than the following scans.
Basically SpadeEye caches your scans in memory rather than using a real database cache.
So the first scan is some kind of "cache build up".
Later scans add unknow players to this cache or take known players from it rather to bug the database again...
Nevertheless you have to consider that a scan consists of 2 parts:
1) Select a table in the lobby and wait for the pokerclient to deliver the playerlist.
This process can take about 1-2 seconds
2) Retrieve the players statistics from your database.
This process again takes some seconds and can be speed up by the cache.
So basically there is room to improve step 2, but as it is client side scanning
- this means your local lobby is being scaned -
you can not avoid the 1-2 seconds per table waiting time for the playerlist...
I had not the time to tested PokerTracker 3 yet, but i heared and i expect that scanning with the HoldemManager database is pretty fast, as it has some kind of build in cache from scratch.
