Performance issues getting values from pre-loaded elements

I'm getting some AF data but I'm finding significant performance issues. I'm not dealing with many objects, at the moment I'm fetching 63 AFElements, each with 8 AFAttributes.


The function takes over 8 seconds (which is never going to be acceptable for the UI), almost all of which is spent getting values from Attributes. I found the lazy loading was causing issues with it calling the server every time I accessed the AFAttributes, so I added pre-loading:


var elements = AFElement.FindElements(AFDatabase, searchRoot, "*", null, MyElementTemplate, AFElementType.Any, true, AFSortField.Name, AFSortOrder.Ascending, 200);


This reduces the RPC to two, instead of my 1 + 63 I had before:


RPC Metrics
   AdvancedFindElements: 1 calls.  292 ms/call on client. 8 ms/call on server.  Delta: 285 ms/cal 1

Total RPCs: 1


Yet it still spends 8 seconds of the method on this line (63 times):


AFAttributeList attributes = new AFAttributeList(element.Attributes);
AFValues values = attributes.GetValue();


This can't be normal can it? Is this the best performance I'm going to get?
