This metric reflects the sum total of the metrics for each operation included in the definition of the SOAP Transaction.
for information on how client time is calculated for each step.
In order to respond to a request for a SOAP operation, application servers (for example, IBM® WebSphere® or BEA Systems's WebLogic®) needs to utilize a variety of resources such as databases, network bandwidth, system memory and CPU. The application server must hold many of these resources until the required response is prepared and then transmitted back to the client. The fulfillment of a request for a SOAP operation is therefore involve network delays and some processing time on the client side as it interprets the response it receives.
This metric measures the total time needed to complete the requested SOAP operation and send the results back to the client. During that time, many of the resources required to formulate the response may be partially or fully dedicated. The following delays are included in this metric:
This metric provides a distribution of . Distribution buckets and ranges are configurable. For more information, see .
