Do validations effect runtime length? Does a monitor with validations run slower than one without them?

I would say it's the opposite, however, it depends how you set the monitor up, if you use a wait like 'wait for Page complete' then the monitor waits until the page has completed loading and then checks the validation. This doesn't add any time to your execution. If you use 'wait for a specific element to appear' and add your text validation into the wait then this is likely to be quicker than 'wait for page complete' as the execution will move on as soon as the element and text you are looking for appear.
