Hi,

 

Yes, per your example, 9 is the 90th percentile value which means 90% of the data points are smaller than 9 and 10% are bigger than 9.
Otherwise, Average Response Time is (1+2+5+9+20)/5 = 7.4

Hi,

 

The Average Transaction Response Time graph displays the average time taken to perform transactions during each second of the load test scenario run.

And the 90th percentile is the value for which 90% of the data points are smaller.

You can refer some threads as below for more information:

Hi Chaun,

 

 

I agree, but my question is when we are making the descison, which one we need to take consider 90 percentile response times OR 100 % i.e Average Response Time from the Graph.

 

As my Understanding 90 % percentile fox Ex:If have response times like 1,2,5,9,20 .It omites the 20 sec's which has max response time.

 

Average Response Time : In the above example includes 20 sec's also and takes average of (1+2+5+9+20)/5

 

Which is one is the best.

 

In general corporate companies which one follows?

 

Please advise!

 

Thanks,

Rajani

Hi,

 

It depends on each company. As my experience, we often follow to Average Response Time.

90% value would be the best.

For example, avg of 4, 6 is 5 and  avg of 1,9 is also 5..But, average value is justified in the first set rather than in the second set, because, 5 is closer to 4 & 6 compared to 1 & 9.

So, I mean to say, Avg values are not precise or ideal when comapred to 90% values.
