Looking for clues
Whenever you see that your action is underperforming you can look into the monitoring to see when this has started. If you have just built the action, you can look which events in your action are taking up a lot of time and focus on these events. If this is an older action, you can find the date that the underperformance started in the graph. Open the changes of the action and search for changes around this date. The changes made might be slowing the action down.
You can run your action directly with the run button in the top menu. Setup the monitoring to show the last hour of activity, then run the action once. Now you can change events in your action and run it again after each change. The graph should tell you if you've made the action faster or slower.
