A Study of High-Resolution Timing
June 1976 (vol. 2 no. 2)
pp. 135-137
D.B. Wortman, Department of Computer Science and the Computer Systems Research Group, University of Toronto
This correspondence describes an experimental comparison of timing information provided by a large multiprogramming operating system (OS/360 MVT) with timing information derived directly from a high-resolution hardware clock. The hardware clock was found to be a superior source of timing information.
Index Terms:
timing information, Hardware clock, operating systems, OS/360 MVT, performance measurement
