PyCharm 2020.2.2: debugging pytest is extremely slow compared with 2020.1.4

I have a project with over 1200+ pytest unit tests. Up to 2020.1.4, running all the tests via the debugger would take 1 min and 15 seconds. With 2020.2.2 it runs for over 5 minutes.

Same happens when debugging only one test function. With 2020.1.4 it would take 6 seconds to reach a breakpoint on the first line. With 2020.2.2 it takes 19 seconds for the same operation.

Is anybody also experiencing this and/or has a solution?

I'm running on a 2015 MacBook Pro, with 16GB RAM using Python 3.8.

Hi, is it possible to provide code sample to reproduce the issue (if possible, please provide in the related issue https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/PY-44462)

Having the same issue - it wasn't until a recent update that tests started taking exponentially longer
