Breakdown of build step durations

I'd like to know how long each step in the build is taking, so I can see where to devote time to speeding up the build.

Currently in the build log I don't see any timing information other than once log message from a test runner.

I looked around online but didn't find a discussion about this.

Is there a simple way to do this?

Thank you!

    You can download full build log which contains time stamps.

    Alternatively, you can wrap some commands into Measure-Command cmdlet.

    I'm glad it's in the downloadable logs, but it would still be nice if a timestamp next to the line numbers could be enabled.

    If you hover a mouse over log line number and see time stamp pops up.

    But yes, we are thinking of better metadata so people can compare build step duration over time.

    Oh, thank you, I didn't realize that; that's exactly what I was looking for
    (just didn't think to hover).
