I'm just a little confused to how to start debugging this or how to figure out what's going on that's causing the discrepency
@hundreds-father-404 moving the performance stuff here since the other thread got a little derailed

on the new release candidate it still takes about 50% longer to run the tests - is that expected?
more specifically the actual test running takes longer (as reported by pytest)
pytest -s tests/test_aml_actions.py
37 passed in 1.46s
./pants test --output=all --force tests/test_aml_actions.py
37 passed, 86 warnings in 2.13s
I'm not sure how to tell how to determine what how pants is running pytest differently?
Cool I see you're using
. Is this consistent? Are you using pantsd (on by default)? I don't think I'd expect that much overhead, but some known remaining places of Pants overhead 1. ~0.6s to start up Pantsd at first 2. iiuc, the first time you create a new Pex like when it says creating
, there is some time involved to unzip it, but then it's cached 3. .pyc files are not cached so must be recompiled every time 4. general Pants overhead of things like determining dependencies Running this command a second time with pantsd enabled should nullify 1 and 4. Regardless of pantsd, running a second time should nullify 2. Leaving the .pyc files as a likely culprit for why this is still slower
(FYI we're planning to address 1 by porting more of Pants to Rust, and 3 is tracked by https://github.com/pantsbuild/pants/issues/11339. No fix for 2, but it's minor and only one time. 4 is why we have the pants daemon to avoid redoing work)
are the timings in this thread with

as to actually debugging this, setting
and then seeing how long the
script in the captured directory (it will be logged) takes to run would be helpful

independently (in a different run, probably), setting
will render more of the log, which will help point to the process runtime vs overhead
can be helpful to print "starting" messages so you can see the time between "starting" and "completed"
they render at debug, iirc
hey sorry for the delayed reply I got sucked into the et_xmlfile stuff I am using --force but I ran it 4 times to get a consistent reading (first time ~13 seconds total, afterward consistent at 8.9 seconds) timings are all with 2.3.x

cool I will check out those suggestions! thanks šŸ™
