I was using BB60C few months ago and I recall that sweep time for this configuration was about 0.5s. Now I am back to work with BB60C and suddenly sweep time has increased to 3.3s.
Any idea what might cause this? No parameters were changed, so I thought maybe Spike software or BB60C itself needs some updates?

I mirrored your settings in the latest version of Spike and saw a similar sweep time. Neither EMC precompliance or BB60C functionality has changed recently in a way that would affect the sweep times as you are seeing.
The biggest factor in sweep time for the given settings is the dwell time. You will notice that decreasing dwell time has a drastic effect on sweep speed. If somehow the dwell time has changed since you last performed this measurement, that could be the cause.
If you remember updating Spike from a much older version recently, that would be interesting to know. If it is possible to determine that older version of Spike, I could investigate that further.
