All measurements in this section were taken using the time-stamp counter register on a 200MHz Pentium Pro processor with a 256KB L2 cache and 64MB of RAM. While a complete assessment of performance requires analysis of all object managers, we limit ourselves to the microkernel, and primarily to IPC since it is a critical path which must be factored into all higher level measurements.
