Magento 2: How long should Unit, Integration and Framework Tests take to run on an unmodified site.

I am experiencing 10 - 15 minutes for PHPUnit tests

Integration tests run for hours and hours... I gave up at 7 hours in.

Haven't tried framework tests.

I'm think that I have configuration issues with my Docker based system that I need to get a dev-ops person to investigate, but before I do I'd like to know how long a well configured system would take?

  • For anyone interested in why my docker set-up was so slow - it was IO I'd setup my test database on the same db container as my dev db which used a volume, I've an old fashioned spinning disk rather than solid state which didn't help. Anyway I've rewritten my docker-compose to include a new container with tmpfs: /var/lib/mysql:rw so that the database is now held in memory rather than being written to disc - persistence not being an issue.

My laptop configuration:

  • Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS
  • PHP 7.0.14 with Xdebug 2.4.0
  • Magento2 CE develop branch

Unit tests:

Time: 1.91 minutes, Memory: 666.00MB
OK, but incomplete, skipped, or risky tests!
Tests: 12518, Assertions: 38189, Incomplete: 38, Skipped: 64.

Integration tests require more time (we have Bamboo builds, and all integration tests for CE and EE versions take about 25-30 min), on my laptop one integration test runs about 280-300 msec (depends on the test).

Functional tests - are heavier, one test runs about 2-3 min, depends on variations and scenarios (for example, place order flow requires more time because uses shipping carriers and payment solutions).


For reference it's helpful to look at the Travis builds.

At this time, this is the result for the latest commit in the develop branch:

  • unit tests 4 minutes on PHP 7.0, 9 minutes on PHP 5.6
  • integration tests 46 minutes on PHP 7.0, 87 minutes on PHP 5.6

So your unit test execution time is still normal, but integration tests running for 7 hours needs investigation.
