5This directory contains the RTEMS Timing Test Suite.
6The tests in this directory are used to measure the execution
7time of RTEMS directive and some critical internal functions.
8The results of these test are reported in the Fact Sheets
9and Supplental Manuals.

11These tests attempt to benchmark RTEMS as the user would.  They measure
12the execution time for a directive (under various circumstances)
13from the time RTEMS is entered until it is executed.  Where possible,
14the time is the average of at least 100 invocations of the directive.
15
16The accuracy of the times reported by these benchmarks is very dependent
17on the resolution of the timer being used.  It is also important to
18insure that all sources of hardware interrupts are disabled during
19execution of the tests.  This insures that the directive time reported
20does not include any interrupt time.
