Apply to Each performance seems slow

I have a flow that has started to run slowly so I'm doing some troubleshooting.  I know the Apply to Eachs are nested and that's could cause a performance hit, but we're talking about a very small number of records.

Here's a screenshot of a test run:



The "For each Planning Period" reports an execution time of 14 minutes which is pretty close if it runs the "For each Worker" loop 73 times at ~11 seconds each.

The big question is why does the "For each Worker" loop report taking ~11 seconds to execute when the only actions inside of it appear to take less than 2 seconds?

Hi @Helpful 


Keep monitor this for next few days. This could be a one off situation.

Re: Apply to Each performance seems slow

hi @Helpful  in my sperience the time depends in many variables, for example the license are you using, the moment in the day that you run the flow, is quite dificult to know the exactly time an reason.
