CalPod Recorrect Duration Time

The CalPod recorrect duration time on our PNA-X system is on the order of 20 sec.
This is with the N5242A setup to measure S11,S21,S12, & S22; Freq.: 500MHz-2.5GHz; 201pts; No averaging; IFBW: 100KHz

After installation the CalPod setup dialog box had the OSL Average set to 4.  When I set it to 1, the recorrect duration is about 6 sec.
Does this duration seem about right?

I've found that if I use the default OSA Average value of 4, and increase the number of points, sweep averaging, or reduced IFBW, the duration quickly grows much longer.
What is a suitable value for OSA Average?  Are there any rules of thumb regarding its value?

Thanks,
David
