|Summary:||Summariser: no point displaying fractional time in most cases|

The Summariser currently displays elapsed time to a precision of 1 decimal point. This takes up additional space in the output, and is often unnecessary. There's no real point including the decimal if the time is > 100secs - dropping the decimal would make at most 1% difference but save 2 spaces in the output. Likewise there's little point displaying the decimal if it is zero. Given that the overall elapsed time will get larger and larger during a test, it's important to be able to display the full value, ideally with the same spacing to make visual inspection easier. For the transaction rate, it's important to be able to compare rates visually. The rate may vary considerably, so it could be confusing if the decimal point was not always displayed.
