What is the reason for the afterAll hook taking 1.5 minutes to complete in my Playwright test report?


The afterAll hook in @playwright/test might take 1.5 minutes to complete due to several reasons:

  1. Time-consuming operations: If there are many workers or fixtures to be torn down, it could take longer to complete their tasks.
import { test } from '@playwright/test';

test.afterAll(async () => {
  // Time-consuming teardown tasks
  1. Timeout settings: The afterAll hook has a separate timeout that can be changed using testInfo.setTimeout(). If the timeout is set too high or too low, it could cause delays.
import { test } from '@playwright/test';

test.afterAll(async ({ testInfo }) => {
  testInfo.setTimeout(60000); // Set the timeout to 60 seconds
  // Teardown tasks
  1. Global timeout: Playwright Test supports a global timeout for the entire test run. If it's set too low and there are many tests with complex setup/teardown requirements, it could cause issues with completing the afterAll hook within the expected time.
import { test } from '@playwright/test';

test.setTimeout(120000); // Set the global timeout to 2 minutes

To avoid unexpected delays in your test runs, review your code carefully and ensure you're using appropriate timeouts at each level.

Thank you!
