How are response times measured with TruClient?
I think that response times with classic Web/http are measured by the time from the first byte sent of the request to the last byte received of the response. Is that correct? And of course it does NOT include the time for a browser to render the page. Is this right?
How are response times measured with TruClient? Is page rendering taken into account since we're dealing at with the page at the GUI level?
Thanks very much in advance,

Update, I got this back from HP last night.
"Regarding you concern you need to focus on just three times generated through the load testing process, specifically the Response time, Wasted time and think time those times are going to affect the results depending on the script complexity (parameters, Graphics, custom code, web services, etc. ) included on the code.
In simple words the response time is going to be always time that the server retrieves and complete the transactions
that has been defined on the script. Processes executed in the client side like and Ajax object or the typing time in Ajax TruClient are going to increase the waste and think time but you can use different filters on Analysis that are going to help generating the metrics as clean as possible. Please refer to chapter 4 page 91 from the Analysis graph, at the end you are going to get a small difference but it can be filtered."
