Cycle Time

Cycle time is the time required to complete an iteration of the CI/CD delivery pipeline. For example, a cycle can start when a user requests a feature to be developed and tested and will then end when that feature is released and made available to the user. Cycle time is measured across all DevOps stages.










The cycle time metric encompasses all delivery stages.

This pattern is covered in DevOps Module 2: DevOps in Practice.
