Is it possible to prevent the capturing of http trafic response in HTTP Traffic component while executing web tests because tests run deadly slow?
The collection of traffic is not what is causing the tests to run slowly. What browser are you using during playback? Which playback engine are you using (WebDriver or legacy)? What kind of element locators does your test use - Xpath element locators can be slower than other types of locators in certain browsers, especially IE. Also, the test can run slowly because the application being tested takes a long time to load each page.
