    Hello @Morpheuss ,

    Welcome to the Microsoft Q&A platform.

    We haven't experienced the above behaviour using Synapse Apache Spark pools till date.

    This issue looks strange. For a deeper investigation and immediate assistance on this issue, if you have a support plan you may file a support ticket.

    As per the test from my end on Synapse Apache Spark Pool: Medium (8 vCores/64 GB).

    On a new cluster it took nearly 3mins 20 secs.


    On a running cluster which took just 15 secs.


    Hope this helps. Do let us know if you any further queries.
