    weird method of calculating the average response times

    Have anyone done series of runs and then took the average of the average response times from all runs?

    I know it sounds weird, but I have a manager who like this methods which I find it strange, and was wondering if anyone done that before…

    So basically you run the same tests, number of times, then you take average response times (or the 90%) from each test and then take the average number from all of them, and that will be your final average response time to report….

    Averages of Averages are not statistically sound.

    Send your manager a copy of Statistics for Dummies. It's a very good book, one I have in my own library.

    I think you already agree that over simplifies it.

    It's like saying, your boss just cares about the average performance of his employees and not look at each individual one.
