[Web Driver Agent] Issues with WDA startup time

Hello, I am currently setting up the Appium IOS tests run on the CircleCI MacOS environment
All tests are successfully running - when I started looking into test parallelization

Used the appium-device-farm plugin for this and set up the tests run with 3 threads - currently everything running pretty well except for one thing - the WDA startup time is pretty long

Currently, at the beginning of tests, it is built via Xcode for 3 simulators I have booted separately
for this, I use “appium:useNewWda, true” capability, after that when the 4-th test started execution changed “appium:useNewWda” to false and set “appium:usePrebuildWDA” to true dynamically, and generally everything is working pretty fast after first three tests

However, the initial tests take quite a long time since the WDA is building for each of the simulators, which you can see at the timeline

here is what appium logs saying

I am having
debug] e[38;5;48m[XCUITestDriver@a047 (57fa5d53)]e[0m Proxying [GET /status] to [GET http://127.0.0.1:50152/status] with no body

for a very long time until the WDA is installed and running

Here is the part of circleCI.yml:

      - run:
          name: Appium Install
          command: |
            npm install -g appium@next && appium driver install xcuitest && appium plugin install --source=npm appium-device-farm

          name: "Run Cucumber IOS Tests"
          command: |
            sudo mvn clean test (--env-vars...)

And my Caps:

        DesiredCapabilities capabilities = CAP.get();
        if (isTestNumberLessThanThreadCount()) {
            capabilities.setCapability("appium:useNewWda", false);

        } else {

        }

        capabilities.setCapability("appium:settings[pageSourceExcludedAttributes]", "visible,enabled,accessible,x,y,width,height,index");
        log.info("Capabilities: " + new JSONObject(capabilities.toJson()).toString(identFactor));
        Allure.addAttachment("Capabilities", capabilities.toString());
        return capabilities;

Thank you in advance for any suggestions

You can follow https://github.com/appium/java-client/blob/4623e1138ca19c388ac2f636a30a4320c00b7fb5/.github/workflows/gradle.yml#L99 to prepare your iOS Simulator environment. Make sure WDA source is only complied once by a single process. The reason for that is that xcodebuild always tries to use as much CPU cores as possible for a single compilation job. Trying to compile more than one project in parallel would only create more concurrency issues and slow down all running jobs.

As I see from the logs of java-client last build - build(deps): Bump actions/setup-java from 3 to 4 (#2081) · appium/java-client@5cd439a · GitHub

There is exactly the same thing happened -

appium driver run xcuitest build-wda

command build the WDA for the firstly selected simulator (iPhone 8) in this case

When later in the next steps the iPhone 12 is being prepared during the E2E run it still builds the WDA separately for this iPhone 12:

It seems to me that the prebuild-driver step is totally unnecessary in this case, because the WDA build still takes place during e2e test’s actual run

I am gonna try the following:

  - run:
      name: Prebuild driver
      command: |
        UDID=$(xcrun simctl list devices available | grep "$iPhone 14 Pro Max (" | cut -d "(" -f2 | cut -d ")" -f1)
        xcodebuild build-for-testing -project /Users/distiller/.appium/node_modules/appium-xcuitest-driver/node_modules/appium-webdriveragent/WebDriverAgent.xcodeproj -scheme WebDriverAgentRunner  -derivedDataPath /Users/distiller/Library/Developer/Xcode/DerivedData/WebDriverAgentData -destination id=$UDID IPHONEOS_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET=16.2 GCC_TREAT_WARNINGS_AS_ERRORS=0 COMPILER_INDEX_STORE_ENABLE=NO

and use those caps from Run Prebuilt WebDriverAgentRunner - Appium XCUITest Driver

capabilities.setCapability(“appium:useXctestrunFile”, true);
capabilities.setCapability(“appium:bootstrapPath”, “/Users/distiller/Library/Developer/Xcode/DerivedData/WebDriverAgentData/Build/Products”);

Yes, with that approach it is working as expected now.

I have a new problem, you see the CircleCI will abandon intel resources in the near future so it is necessary to make the run happen for me on the m1 chip: here is what I’ve got after a successful WDA start-up, it is strange because on my local machine, there is also M1 - and when I launch the tests using the same algorithm it works okay
