Http_poller response time of the requested URL

Dear ELK funs,

I am playing with http_poller plugin, and found runtime_seconds in the returned metadata, does runtime_seconds stand for the response time(first byte sent and last byte received) of the requested URL?
I found its value is 0.109s while in my tomcat server log, time taken to process the request (%D) is 0.437s, so it seems it's not.
So my question is what runtime_seconds stands for and how to get performance(real response time) of the requested URL? Thanks.

Best Regards,

As I read the code execution_time really is the difference between the start time and the completion time of the request. (below) It's pretty easy to check by sniffing the network traffic.
