Can anybody please help me to figure out the response time calculation in the Web Application.
Actually my task is to calculate the response time for certain period of time
one is longer period
second is smaller period
then compare the average of both to get the idea about the system health.
please reply asap!.
thanks & regards

I'm using The Grinder to do load testing of a web application. The Version 3 beta is scriptable using Python/Jython and is pretty simple to get running. One of the metrics it measures is response time.

I notice you also posted something similar in the servlets forum -
That said - a simple average is not all that informative - I prefer to collect a histogram. I found response times clustered in two groups - a little thought revealed that the very fast responses corresponded to users with high speed access while the slow corresponded to dial-up modem access.
