Investigating az-cli performance on the hosted Azure Pipelines and GitHub Runners
OCTOBER 2, 2023
I’ve been building a few more workflows and pipelines over the past few days and had been experimenting with the az-cli. And I’ve been running into all kinds of performance issues. Azure CLI is a great nifty tool to chat to Azure as well as Azure DevOps and there’s a AzureCLI@v2 task in Azure DevOps that preconfigures your Azure subscription and all.While testing I got increasingly frustrated by how slow az is on GitHub Actions and Azure Pipelines hosted runners.
