Appreciate the response.
I have had issues previously where phpinfo page took time to load as well.
SQL is on the same server, and have never experienced the problem of taking time to "warm up". If such is the case, I find it odd it would only occur in conjunction with LS.
As I write this post, I am not having any issues.
For what its worth, I have created a ramdrive for the gzip and LS cache directory. Doubt its of any relevance, but will put this in for future documentation.
