Directory listing speed

Hello all,

I just moved my old openSUsE 11.4 mail server to freebsd 10.4 (postfix+
dovecot+clamav) and it seems to work fine :-)...

I noticed that the directory listing of my users mailboxes (around five
hundred) is way slower than in linux.
Is it normal? 

Do I need to tweak some kernel parameters (I have a lot of free RAM)?

I've already set the kern.maxusers to 4096, is that enough?

Many thanks to everybody,
