Q. I consistently see high response times on my Barracuda HTTPS probe. is this normal?

A. This is "normal". Dartware's Barracuda exhibits response times averaging 2-4 seconds for this probe. The Barracuda probes make several HTTP/HTTPS connections to login and get the information.

The default threshold for the map is too low, since it assumes packet-based probes. Go to Monitor > Set Thresholds... to change the alarm and warning thresholds to 6000 and 9000 milliseconds respectively.
