Receive extra information from the server

I've worked out how to send addtional information from the client to the server. Now, I want to go back the other way.

So, how do I send extra information from the server to the client. I would have thought I could add an extra entry in the returned JSON and pull it out somewhere. One item I'd perhaps like to send back is how long the server took to handle the response. I can then show this information to the user.

I don't really want to put the extra data in the column/row data as that wouldn't make much sense.

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks
