so for example here, tracing has taken 0.8s out of 2.5 total (a lot) +
0.2s for the backend. Also, there were 16 loops aborted because trace
run out for too long. That might mean a lot of things. If you can post
some example I can probably look at traces.

For example - is the loop iteration from above a good one?
