Printing test execution times and pinning down slow tests with py.test

I am running unit tests on a CI server using py.test. Tests use external resources fetched over network. Sometimes test runner takes too long, causing test runner to be aborted. I cannot repeat the issues locally.

Is there a way to make py.test print out execution times of (slow) test, so pinning down problematic tests become easier?

I'm not sure this will solve your problem, but you can pass --durations=N to print the slowest N tests after the test suite finishes.
