Interpretation times: This is the duration from the time that user input actions are validated in the SAP GUI client and the moment the request is actually sent to the SAP application server. This measures the health of the SAP GUI client used for the test rather than the performance of the SAP R/3 server.

Check SAP Note: 364625.

Response Time: The response time of a transaction step is the difference in time between the point when the request arrives in the R/3 System and the point when the R/3 System completes the processing.

Check SAP Note: 8963 and 851012.

Round trip times: Is almost same as the response time. Time from client - LAN - Server and back to the client is known as Round trip time.
