Data is showing MvcMiniProfiler results. Is that expected?

I thought the number was showing how much time the executed query took, but I see that number also in the login page.

In a page showing a query, after I execute that query, I see more than one number.

What does effectively that number mean? Why do I see more than one number (it could also be 5 numbers)?

See Data is showing MvcMiniProfiler results. Is that expected?. I can answer the bit about the multiple numbers if you want, but it's not particularly interesting. – Tim Stone Aug 9 '12 at 17:18

It is the output of the MVC mini profiler - a tool written by the Stack Overflow team and that is used to measure the performance of a page.
