Incremental load time is slow ~9s

Do you want to request a feature or report a bug?


What is the current behavior?

Incremental load is pretty slow, the initial load doesn’t take very long (20s or so), and it’s not a huge app, but the incremental load takes ~9 seconds.

If the current behavior is a bug, please provide the steps to reproduce.

It was faster in previous versions of webpack, but also the config changed

  1. Also note that the default config of the thread-loader is not optimized for watching builds. The readme notes that poolTimeout: Infinity should be used when watching, elsewise you pay the worker bootstrap every time.
