How To Really Measure Real-Time
In this paper, we will discuss the details of measuring the true real-time performance of any operating system. All modern operating systems have some degree of determinism, identifying this accurately is paramount to determining the viability of a particular OS for a particular application. Designers often attempt to solve real-time problems by speeding up the hardware. We will see how a slow processor running an efficient RTOS will outperform a fast processor running an inefficient RTOS.
