We just launched a brand new feature on EvenNode which helps you track how fast your app responds to requests.
Response time metric tracks the time it took your app to process a request and return a response. We provide you with three important metrics which help you determine how quickly your app responds to requests:
- 90th response time percentile
- 95th response time percentile
- 99th response time percentile
The percentiles enable you to determine the maximum time it took your app to serve X% of requests. If the 90th percentile shows a value of 450ms it means 90% of the requests were completed within less time than 450ms and 10% took more time to complete than 450ms.
The response time metric does not include time it took the browser to send and receive a response. It is a good indicator of the speed of your application without the variability of user connection, location or browser/computer speed.
Lower numbers mean your application is faster at processing requests and usually leads to a better user experience. Web pages load faster and the interface feels much more responsive.
