Continuous Integration (CI) allows software development teams to generate software builds more quickly and periodically (e.g., daily or even hourly). When builds are generated frequently, a long build duration may hold developers from performing other important tasks. Prior research has shown that long build durations may impose a negative overhead to the software development process, since developers may wait for extended periods before engaging in other development activities. However, the reasons behind long build durations are still vague and need an in-depth study. In this paper, we study the characteristics of CI builds that are associated with the long duration of CI builds. Our results reveal that, in addition to the common wisdom factors (e.g., project size, team size, build configuration size, and test density), there are other highly important factors to explain long build durations. Our results help development teams understand the best practices to maintain timely builds.
