I have done some tests for completely different purposes. Like wanting
to know how each scanners calls each and every sample in the 100k+
I can tell you about the time the same batch took for a number of
scanners. But it will not be real accurate for your purpose. If scanning
takes little time but starting the scanner takes some serious time then
that scanner will drag down the throughput of your MailScanner box in a
very serious manner.
