Performance issues in PHP core tests

I'm writing to ask for support with an issue in the PHP test jobs . That issue increasingly shows up in that jobs seem to take ever longer and exceed the one hour barrier. This happens sporadically and of course every new PHP version adds new tests. But right because the jobs take longer sporadically suggests there might be an issue also on the AppVeyor side. I also left a comment on GitHub where this issue is being discussed. Could you advise please, which options would be viable to investigate these slowdowns, or perhaps there were something to be done on the AppVeyor side?

    Hi Anatol,

    No need to skip any tests :) Your build is probably quite CPU-hungry because I see that those slow builds happened on VMs which run on specific Hyper-V machines (AWS "bare-metal" instances we instantiate during load spikes or maintenance) which has a little bit lower CPU clock rate than the ones in our datacenter. We set your builds to avoid those VMs. Also we increased your build timeout to 90 minutes, just in case. You should be good now. And please ping us anytime you need.

    Hi Ilya,

    thanks a lot, that's a great news. Just waiting for some new builds now. Please feel free to close the ticket, if you don't hear from me in next couple of days.
