Which profile run step is taking the longest? What type of objects are synchronizing (users, groups, etc.)? Any criteria-based groups? Any group which might include most or all of your users, aside from Domain Users (which is not calculated)?
It has been my experience that performance issues can occur during the synchronization step, as there is usually a calculation of the reference values for group objects, which keeps up with membership. However, I have run into problems where the nesting strategy of these groups sometimes overlap, and membership is way more complicated than necessary.
Revisiting group nesting knocked our processing time down from 45-60 minutes to less than 10 minutes during a delta sync. Of course, we have 20k users.
Let us know. I am curious too if you are experiencing long processing during import/export specifically as well.
