Review of test programs

lpptest

problems:

  • requires 2 machines
  • requires parallel port (not many embedded boards have this)
  • uses TSC, which is i386-specific

benefits:

  • built into the rt-preempt patch
  • 2-machine system gives unbiased timing results
    • instrumentation does not interfere with the timings
