<Please see attached file for image>



Current ASM release


From JMeter's site: 

"Latency: JMeter measures the 'LATENCY' from just before sending the request to just after the first response has been received. Thus the time includes all the processing needed to assemble the request as well as assembling the first part of the response, which in general will be longer than one byte. Protocol analyzers (such as Wireshark) measure the 'TIME' when bytes are actually sent/received over the interface. The JMeter time should be closer to that which is experienced by a browser or other application client. "
