Hello,

Would someone be able to explain the difference between Response Time and Processing Time for a page?

Thanks in advance,
Andrew.

Processing Time
It is the time from the moment when request has been sent till the moment when server response is completely received. WAPT Pro measures processing time without page elements. See the Summary Graphs to know the values of average processing time (for all profiles) and graphs for individual pages to know the processing time for specific pages.

Response Time
It is the time from the first byte of page request sent till the last received byte of server response. In other words, it is the time from clicking a link or a button in browser till the moment a page is downloaded. WAPT Pro measures 2 types of response time: without page elements and including page elements. See the Summary Graphs to know the values of average response time (for all profiles) and graphs for individual pages to know the response time for specific pages.

So Response Time = time to send request + Processing Time.
