Response Time

Response time is the time it takes a system to respond to a user-initiated request for an application or data resource. Decreasing response time generally requires additional investments in processors, storage, I/O, or communications capacity, or (more likely) all of these.

In traditional mainframe-based online transaction processing applications, response time equates to the time required to perform a transaction or display data on a terminal. For more complex IS environments, response time is more likely to be the time required to process a database query, locate and retrieve a file, and deliver a document in electronic or hard-copy form. Delivering fast response time according to these criteria is both more difficult and more expensive than it is for traditional mainframe applications.
