Response time indicator

A response time indicator may appear at the bottom right of forms and lists.

This indicator provides the processing time, including the total time and the time for each step, for a completed transaction. The following example shows the response time for retrieving a filtered list in a demo instance.
Figure 1. Response time
The response time text is:
Response time(ms): 499, server: 155 network: 172 browser: 172
In this example, the transaction took the following amount of processing time.
  • 499 milliseconds total time
  • 155 milliseconds on the server
  • 172 milliseconds moving data across the network
  • 172 milliseconds in the browser, rendering the HTML and parsing and executing JavaScript

Response time appears on most pages. However, it does not appear for simple operations, such as paging through a set of records or changing the sort order of a list, or for the first transaction in a session.

To hide the response time, click the clock (Response clock). Click the clock again to show the response time.

Point to the clock to view a tool tip with the response time.
