Understanding responseTooSlow in HBase regionserver log
I found http://hbase.apache.org/book/ops.monitoring.html but am confused
about the distinction between operationTooSlow and responseTooSlow.  I
find the text "client operation" ambiguous, I am not sure whether that
means the side emitting this log entry is the client and the slow
operation happened on some server elsewhere or it is the other way around
or something else.  I am running HBase-0.92.0 and found the following in
the log of a regionserver:

2012-04-26 13:17:30,698 WARN org.apache.hadoop.ipc.HBaseServer:
<mycoprocessor/>, rpc version=1, client version=0, methodsFingerPrint=0),
rpc version=1, client version=29,
methodsFingerPrint=54742778","client":"","starttimems":1335460640355,"queuetimems":0,"class":"HRegionServer","responsesize":0,"method":"execCoprocessor"} is not the IP address of the machine running this
regionserver, it is the IP address of the machine running my HBase client

When is operationTooSlow used and when is responseTooSlow used?

In my example above, am I correct that this was merely a warning issued on
the regionserver saying that my coprocessor took a bit over 10 seconds on
that regionserver and this did not cause any actual harm?  Note that my
HBase client application printed no complaints and appeared to work
correctly (although my evaluation of "correctness" was limited).
