Subject Notes 8.0.1, 8.0.2 and 8.5 (Beta 1 and Beta 2) Performance Comparisons
Erik,

You are correct. All of the improvements that we made in Notes 8.0.2 did not make the first public Beta for Notes 8.5. The second public beta (which will be coming out soon) will have all of the performance updates which are in Notes 8.0.2.

PLEASE NOTE: These are preliminary results

Notes 8.0.2
Start-up
Warm Start-up improved by 73% in Notes 8.0.2 when compared against Notes 8.0.1 (Notes 8.0.2 re-launching in a quarter of the time vs 8.0.1)
Cold Start-up improved by 52% in Notes 8.0.2 when compared against Notes 8.0.1 (Notes 8.0.2 the first time after boot launches in half the time compared to 8.0.1)
Memory Consumption
The memory footprint improved by 21% when compared against Notes 8.0.1
Weighted User Response Times
The cumulative response time improved by 15% when compared against Notes 8.0.1

Notes 8.5 Beta 1
Start-up
Warm Start-up improved by 41% in Notes 8.0.2 when compared against Notes 8.0.1 (Beta 1 re-launches in a third of the time vs. 8.0.1)
Cold Start-up improved by 36% in Notes 8.0.2 when compared against Notes 8.0.1 (Beta 1 the first time after boot launches in a third of the time vs. 8.0.1)
Memory Consumption
The memory footprint improved by 5% when compared against Notes 8.0.1
Weighted User Response Times
The cumulative response time improved by 6% when compared against Notes 8.0.1


Notes 8.5 Beta 2
Start-up
Warm Start-up improved by 76% in Notes 8.0.2 when compared against Notes 8.0.1 (Beta 2 re-launching in a quarter of the time vs 8.0.1)
Cold Start-up improved by 47% in Notes 8.0.2 when compared against Notes 8.0.1 (Beta 2 the first time after boot launches in half the time compared to 8.0.1)
Memory Consumption
The memory footprint improved by 17% when compared against Notes 8.0.1
Weighted User Response Times
The cumulative response time improved by 18% when compared against Notes 8.0.1

Definitions
Start-up
The Start-up results are a combination of the time from double-click to password prompt plus the time from clicking OK on the password prompt until the processor acquiesces.
Memory Consumption
The working set memory results are a combination of the notes process (nlnotes.exe) and the java process (notes2.exe)
Weighted User Response Time
The cumulative response time is an addition of numerous user actions (read memo, reply, send, open calendar, etc) with each action weighted by how often a particular action would be performed.
