Is it possible to get synthethic script runtime duration (was called 'response time' in synthetic classic) with the current synthetics?

we previously in synthetic classic, used the 'response time' metric to baseline and measure changes in application performance for certain functionalities within our application. We are looking for the equivalent metric in the Dynatrace SAAS hosted synthetics now that classic has been deprecated.

In general, if you have synthetic connected to particular application it should be easy. in such case synthetic visits should be available as well in USQL with filter for SYNTHETIC:

You can read about USQL queries more here:

This feature is very flexible and should be good point for you to define KPI’s 🙂

Thanks for the response, but the answer is totally incorrect. These values are not the equivalent metric.

I'm looking for how long the synthetic script takes to execute in total, for each run of the script. I want to include wait times, and time the system is spending running queries in the background. The time it takes for a page to load/refresh is less than 5% of the time I am interested in.

For example, a typical single run of my script takes 118 sec. However I cannot find a metric that will return this data. Using NAM and Classic Synthetics, this was easily accessed using the metric 'response time'.
