Currently there are two forms of timing and debug info collected:

1. For each target built its action is timed. You can immediately see this by
adding "-d+4" option. In addition to time info it will output additional
command execution info which you'll probably need to filter out. This info is
also available inside the Jamfiles as an optional __TIMING_RULE__ which is
called on each target. BBv2 has some utility for printing these out in the
testing.jam, but I'm not sure how to use it :-) Volodya might want to clarify

2. There's a comprehensive memory and time debug info mode which keeps track
of all the rules called. Turn this on with the "-d+10" option. This doesn't
time the actions themselves though.

And of course you can time overall execution externally. I.e. "time bjam ...".
