Rendering PostProcessing- MtoA Batch

Hello, only recently when I batch render in Arnold (GPU) Maya 2020.1 there is a very long period where it "// Result: Rendering Postprocessing" takes a very long time. The render would take 2 minutes but the Postprocessing takes 10-15 minutes. I have reinstalled the drivers and made a fresh scene but after say 2-3 frames the Postprocessing takes increasingly longer. I have no post processing effects. Any thoughts? GPU 2080ti x 2

Hi Mike. Basically I found that it's rendering fine, just the % update on Maya is incorrect. It's rendering fine, just not updating the status properly

What is happening while these messages are printed? Is CPU usage at 100% and you cannot interact with Maya?

These messages are printed by Maya, not Arnold or MtoA, because Maya thinks the render is finished.

Are all renders finished? Did you see the "releasing resources" message in the Arnold log?

If you render from the command line, does the same thing happen?
