Slow execution performance

Describe the problem/error/question

Slow execution performance for simple workflows (webhook > home assistant > respond).

I’m seeing things taking a good few seconds for anything to start happening with workflows, doesn’t seem to matter how complex or simple it is. The execution status of a flow can get to and over 10 seconds, but then once its complete its only taking 0.3 seconds. Could it be due to this? Slow Webhook response performance + High CPU

I haven’t noticed high CPU usage though.

What is the error message (if any)?

Please share your workflow

What do you mean with that?

Sorry, long day!

So if I go to executions, and look at the latest execution of a workflow, I see a pretty reasonable figure as below


But when the workflow is first triggered, it almost seems like its taking longer to execute and it sits like this for a few seconds:

And then it updates to a more reasonable time
