Adding an expiry header to a file should take a fraction of a microsecond, although I suppose the function of storing the file might take time...

That's what I was thinking, but I am still seeing a significant hit to site speed.

To test this, I replaced the web.config file with the original (the only change was to enable cache static content) and the site speed went back to where it was before the web.config update.

I also ran the website update in two parts. First I uploaded the updated html files, etc. and conducted testing. Then, after the testing was completed, I uploaded the new web.config file and conducted a second round of testing. The difference in load time was significant!

I really don't understand why this would be, but it's definitely something I would like to resolve... It just doesn't make sense to me.
