Response time indicator

A response time indicator may appear at the bottom right of forms and in List v2 list views.

This indicator provides the processing time, including the total time and the time for each step, for a completed transaction. In List v3, the administrator can add the glide.ui.list_v3.client.timings.roles property to allow specified roles to see the response time.

The following example shows the response time for retrieving a filtered v2 list in a demo instance.
Figure 1. Response time in v2 lists
Response time
The response time text is:
Response time(ms): 968, Network: 3, server: 548, browser: 417
In this example, the transaction took the following amount of processing time.
  • 968 milliseconds total time
  • 3 milliseconds moving data across the network
  • 548 milliseconds on the server
  • 417 milliseconds in the browser, rendering the HTML and parsing and executing JavaScript

In List v3, the response time appears on the lower left for users whose role is specified in the system property.

Response time in List v3

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 in List v2 or forms, click the clock icon. Click the clock icon again to show the response time.

Point to the clock to view a tooltip with the response time.

Administrators can disable the response time by setting the glide.ui.response_time property to false.
