XGBClassifier: Taking long time to start showing training progression

After calling this XGBClassifier.fit() function, before start showing the training process (each iteration with training and validation loss), it is taking a long time (around 1-3 hours).

Training Dimension: 280,000 * 5120

Could anyone please tell me if it is normal or is it because of something else?

Would be great if you can share more information:

  • XGBoot version
  • Hyper-parameter being used.
  • Input data type.
  • How many classes do you have?
