I don't know of any place within SCons that would collect such
information. All I could find so far is:

1.) Tracing mode (activated with the --taskmastertrace=... option, very
verbose!), and
2.) StatsNode output, which gets activated by

import SCons.Taskmaster
SCons.Taskmaster.CollectStats = True

in your SConstruct (very verbose, too!).

Don't know if this is of any help to you...but I fear it's all we got
for now. ;)

Best regards,
