Generally speaking, does having alot of persistent variables (more than 10) in a script, slow down TestManager's clean up phase after a test run?
I have never specifically noticed that.
But the size and amount of your logs will definitely have an influence on the clean up duration.
Persistent variables do take more RAM - but 10 is insignificant. If you have a bunch of split scripts and you have hundreds of them... that's a different story.

If you can see it in your mind...
you will find it in your life.
What are persistent variables?
A highly advanced bug is indistinguishable from a feature.
