What Is Response Time?

Response time is a performance metric that measures the time taken to react to the input. The response time represents the total wait time (queue) and service time (request fulfillment).

The measurement applies to various computing technologies, such as database queries, memory handling, webpage loading, and computer networking. Low response time indicates better performance.
