Jira Cycle Time

Cycle time refers to the time elapsed between the moment a task is started, and its conclusion. It is a measure of how long it takes from when work starts on an item (story, task, bug, etc.) until it is delivered. Cycle time indicates how long (in calendar time) it takes to complete a task.

Now you can get a full breakdown cycle time per status and task in the sprint. This can give you a better indication of what you spend the majority of your time on. Is it coding or review time? Maybe you need to allocate more resources for the review or refresh the priorities?
