As per my understanding upstream_response_time is subset of
request_time : This shows how long Nginx dealt with the request
upstream_response_time: Gives us the time it took our upstream server
(in this case Apache/mod_wsgi) to respond
request_time = time nginx got the request to the time it sends the
reponse to client(browser).
request_time = variable component + upstream_response_time
Can anybody explain me what exactly the “variable component” is ?
