Slowing down data driven test execution


#1

I have a data driven test suite which takes data from Excel (few hundred rows).

The test case consists of navigation to a page based on URL from the Excel and doing a set of actions on that page. after a while of it running (few dozens of rows), the execution becomes slower and slower on each iteration of the Excel. initially one row takes 5 sec for all actions and after a while it can take even 15 sec while the log viewer keeps popping up the actions slower than initially and the page under test is frozen until Katalon finishes processing and continues.

this seems to be an issue with the way Katalon processes multi row data driven test cases which accumulates a delay the more rows there are.
