Breaking down where time is being spent in my design (time in seconds). @User had some ideas on how to speed up DRC, but I haven't had a chance to try them yet.

2412.0 magic spice
 433.0 TritonRoute
 369.0 magic mag_gds

Could you share what those ideas are?

A few things. He suggested running
which avoids any GDS based rules. Might be good enough for design exploration before doing the final tape out. Tim also has some ideas on how we could parallelise DRC, which would be very nice.
