Measurements made by the test
Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation

POP availability

Indicates whether the TCP connection is available or not.


An availability problem can be caused by different factors - e.g., the server process may not be up, or, a network problem may exist, etc.

POP response time

Indicates the time taken (in seconds) by the server to respond to a request.


An increase in response time can be caused by several factors such as a server bottleneck, a network problem, etc.
