Hi all, Is there a way to get the time breakdown of a prefect task's execution journey? Like, when the task says it took 5 seconds to run, is it just the compute or some prefect functionality also taking time. Also, at the flow level, granular timing breakdown of what is purely compute time and what is prefect operations time.

Prefect doesn't introduce much overhead (range of milliseconds), you shouldn't have to worry about that, so all the execution times reported in the UI are execution times -- the only exception is when your flow run needs to get deployed to some remote infra, this can take some extra latency but this depends on the execution layer and doesn't affect actual task run execution
