I would like to ask a question regarding HP Loadrunner.

We have a web application that we would like to test for performance. At the end of my test, I've got 8.768 seconds average transaction response time for Soundex search, while for a default search, I've got 18.35 seconds average transaction response time.

I doubt with the results. Is this natural?

Are the search algorithms (ordinary, soundex) something your team developed or an existing search mechanism? E.g. Oracle DB provides soundex search. –  dzieciou Feb 22 '14 at 18:29
It's a default mechanism of SQL Server's SOUNDEX() function. –  Ju-chan Mar 2 '14 at 15:41
Then I think your question would be better answered at dba.stackexchange.com. You will probably need to probide more info about your query and the queried schema. –  dzieciou Mar 2 '14 at 17:01
I see, thanks dude! –  Ju-chan Mar 3 '14 at 13:54
@Ju-chan - I see that you've not yet asked this over in dba.stackexchange.com. Do you want us to ask the dba mods if we can migrate the question over there? –  testerab Mar 9 '14 at 13:04
