Workflow Debug Node performance question

Are there recommended guidelines on leaving in or removing Debug Nodes in workflows? Is there a quantifiable performance benefit for going through my workflows and removing them? Is there a performance hit for inadvertently leaving Live Debug Stream on, etc?



Hi Jason,

In practice I usually end each of my workflows with a Debug Node to visualize the data while building and in the case I revisit the workflow later. I do not believe there would be a significant runtime difference if you choose to remove them.

The Live Debug Stream is exclusively a visual tool used to display the path of the data through the workflow, and thus will not affect the speed of execution. I would say it is primarily a personal decision based on visual preference over performance after your workflows are built.
