MS SOAP Toolkit parses SOAP messages using DOM, which is a tree parser. I'm not aware of any way that you can optimize it. If performance is a problem for you, you might consider using a different SOAP implementation. If you're using C/C++/C#, I'd recommend WASP Server for C++. It uses a stream-based pull parser. If you are using VB/VBA/VBScript, I'd recommend PocketSOAP (also supports C/C++/C#). It uses James Clark's expat parser, a stream-based push parser.
