I tried to export Mapbooks to PNG with an PYthonscript. The script works fine on Desktop and on Server. But on Server it takes much more time for creating only one of the PNGs. In the sum of over 150 PNGs it makes over a half of a day for executin the script.

On Desktop, the script takes around 7 seconds per PNG, on server it takes around 100 seconds.

I tried it with two different servers, with different datasources (GDB and SDE) and I also tried it with Labeling on/off. It all makes no significant difference.

Could anyone give me a hint how I could get it work faster? Or could anyone could explain why it is so?
