Service Virtualization

Is there a way to reduce the latency incurred by using a Live Invocation in DevTest?

    I have a virtual service that uses a Live Invocation step as part of the model. I'm building it as a proof of concept to support routing traffic between various environments but it also needs to hold up under load. 

     

    My model looks like this (very simple) - 

    Listener -> Live Invocation -> Responder

     

    If I use SOAPUI to hit the Live Invocaation URL directly (from the server that is hosting DevTest), I get a <100ms response time but if I go through DevTest, my response time jumps to ~1 sec (1000 ms), almost 10x. 

     

    Are there any methods to optimize this step? Is there a concept of connection pooling or reuse?
