Let’s say that you want to access a web service or a web page. The response time that you can see with different tools is a sum of the server processing time of the request and the delay involved for your request to reach to server and back.
This is getting more important when remote data centers are hosting the web page or web service.
Latency + Processing Time = Response Time
You can have a look at the latency vs. response time chart as you need to understand these different aspects of the system, and it is important for all the parties involved to know the difference between the two when they are doing a performance analysis.
You can use LoadFocus in order to stress test your application or API, inspect the latency and response time for all requests.
