# TPS vs Response Times

Have to clarrify things between TPS and Response Times.

Did a load test for a service last week ., 90% response time is 2.281 sec and Avg TPS is 26.

Did the same load test today with same settings , 90% response time is 1.937 sec and Avg TPS is "45".

I know that the TPS is directly proportional with response time of the service, In the above scenario , how the TPS is much higher(45) compared to the first run(26) even though there is not much change in respone time ?

• > I know that the TPS is directly proportional with response time of the service

It's inversely proportional.  So if the response time was the only factor you would get:

TPS 30.6 = 26 * 2.281 / 1.937

• thanks for your reply dennis,  agreed thats inversley proportional . But still i am not clear on this, is there any other addional parameters should i check on why TPS was much higher ? based on your calculation do you mean to say that the second run should end up in 30TPS  instead of 45 ?

• > is there any other addional parameters should I check

Sorry, I'm not that familiar.

> based on your calculation do you mean to say that the second run should end up in 30TPS instead of 45?

Yes, if response time was the only factor.
