Recently I inherited some of the  LR scripts from one of my colleagues,it was all about building the json calls for stressing the backend spring security framework which was first layer of entry into the mobile infrastructure.Those scripts were simple scripts  built using the custom request with json string as a body part.One of the things that really surprised me as part of this effort was that web custom request in itself was taking close to 100ms to 300ms to do decompression of the server response during load testing.

Okay first let me give you some background,servers were configured to send the response compressed in gzip format with content encoding header as gzip.The functionality under scope had SLA of 1 sec max and quite a few functionality in scope also had SLA that was less than 500ms.Quite a challenging SLA
