MXD opening-time analysis toolsets

Hello all,


I'm trying to analyse the root cause of some MXD opening time issues, 10.3 - 10.6.

MXDs are lagging at about circa 10 mins for some. I think I've narrowed this down to Oracle SDE connections but it's not entirely my wheelhouse.


1. Any advice on Oracle sde connections being laggy?

2. any script snippets or tools to analyse mxd performance and opening times? ( i'm aware of mxd doctor etc and general normal.mxt resets...)


3. finally I've been trying to see if instantiating a arcpy.mapping.mapdocument and then timing listLayers for the mxd is equivalent or indicative of mxd opening times, and it seems to be a good metric. Any experience of this?


Much obliged
