When I reply the script in VuGen, the following message is displayed in Output window -
Script_Name(LineNumber): Notify: Transaction "Transaction Name" ended with "Pass" status (Duration: 134.8640 Wasted Time: 2.0757).
What is this "Wasted Time"?
What is the significance of "Wasted Time"?

From the product help:
Time spent on activities whose purpose is to support test analysis, but would never be performed by a browser user.
So what does it actually mean?
Here are a few examples:
- Siebel-Web protocol – first web_reg_save_param… step that uses Siebel correlation library takes time on DLL invocation and this time reported as “wasted”.
- The similar case exists with openSSL components (additional 1 second before handshake).
- Time spent of text search (web_reg_find) also reported as “wasted”.
So basically it is the time that was wasted in LR code which would not be wasted by a real user.
