Sum of raster's cell values

Hello everyone,

I need to sum all the cell values for a series of rasters and save instantly the result number. 

I tried Zonal Statistics and Zonal Statistics as Table in arcpy so it returns a single value raster in the first and a table in the second case which takes many hours to run through all the rasters. I would like to ask if it is possible to create a code or use a different command that  returns the sum of all the cells of a raster quicky.

The code has the following form:

import arcpy

from arcpy import env

from import *

arcpy.env.workspace = "C:/MSc_thesis/run500"

plist  = arcpy.ListRasters("p*", "GRID")

for i in plist:

inZoneData = 'Karitaina_watershed_polygon'     

zoneField = "Value"

inras = Raster(i)

outZon = ZonalStatistics(inZoneData, zoneField, inras,"SUM"),"s" + str(i)))

Please format your code correctly.

How many rasters are being iterated?  One thing which will improve performance is to supply the inzone feature as a raster, otherwise it is converted from feature to raster for each iteration, although this will unlikely be a huge gain.
