The Test Latency tool can be used if you are experiencing network slowness.
- Latency: Measures turnaround time (how long it takes your computer to travel to the database and back). It is measured in milliseconds. The lower the latency, the less delay. Measurements vary from network to network, but on average a good result is less than 50 ms.
- Speed: Measures how long it will take to generate a complex query. It is measured in megabytes per second.
In the Main Menu, click Tools, Misc Tools, Test Latency.
Click Test to calculate.
