Find slow test setUp/tearDown

Project description

Nose can report test execution time in its various output formats but it doesn’t include the setUp or tearDown time, which can be substantial.


  1. pip install nose-congestion
  2. nosetests --with-congestion


After all of the tests complete, a simple table will be printed:

Location                                       Total    setUp tearDown
module.tests.FastTests                         7.187    1.659    0.000
module.tests.SlowTests                         0.047    0.002    0.000

  Total  Location
