Tests running extremely slow - failing by timeout

Two days ago tests were running in 17mins.

Now it just hangout forever due to extremely slowness, see last builds.

What to do? Tests are passing on local copies of windows/linux/osx, and also on Travis (for osx and win) -- worths to mention, Travis runs the same tests in 3 or 4 mins.

Thanks in advance.

    Interesting observation. If you download build log for this build and look at timestamps you'll notice that installing meteor takes around 30 min. Look at Restart-Computer -Force line.

    What build? The link you sent me is broken.

    Since yesterday the network and filesystem operations seems to be facing unusual slowness. Can you confirm something about this?

    Two days ago, Meteor's installation was taking 5 mins:

    [00:00:44] .\InstallMeteor.exe /passive
    [00:05:51] Start-Sleep -s 5
    [00:05:56] Restart-Computer -Force

    Thanks again.

    I suspect that meteor got updated, and while building, you have to download an older version of meteor build tool, which tend to be slow after my experience. Currently I'm using choco to install meteor, and specifying the meteor version like so:

    - choco install meteor --params "'/RELEASE:'"
    - refreshenv

    Looks like this is a lot faster than letting meteor download the build tool by itself.
