seL4

Performance

This page displays the latest benchmark numbers for seL4 from the publicly available sel4bench repository. The following times are reported as mean and standard deviation in the format mean (std dev), both rounded to the nearest integer.

  • IRQ invoke: Time in cycles to invoke a user-level interrupt handler running in the same address space as the interrupted thread.
  • IPC call: Time in cycles for invoking a server in a different address space on the same core.
  • IPC reply: Time in cycles for a server replying to a client in a different address space on the same core.
  • Notify: Time in cycles to send a signal from a process with priority 1 to a higher priority (255) process in a different address space
