1== Rhealstone Benchmark For RTEMS
2
3This is an implementation of the Rhealstone benchmarks for RTEMS.
4
5The Rhealstone metric is a set of benchmarks that aim to provide an
6independently verifiable objective measure of real-time performance in
7different systems. The Rhealstone metric is composed of six independent
8benchmarks, each of which measure an activity that is critical in real
9time systems:
10
11* Task switch time
12* Task preemption time
13* Interrupt latency time
14* Semaphore shuffle time
15* Deadlock breaking time
16* Intertask message latency
17
18An implementation of the Rhealstone metric allows for RTEMS performance to be
19compared with other real-time systems.
