ABSTRACT

ASSET_A_172:  MACH vs. UNIX Performance Report
     This report describes the study conducted to measure the
performance of multiprogramming applications running under MACH with
similar applications running under UNIX -- using CAIS-A tools as the
test vehicle.  Specifically, the study compared the elapsed times for a
large set of CAIS-A interface calls made between CAIS-A tools and the
CAIS-A server program.  The report discusses the differences in
implementation approaches used for message passing between tools the
server.  It describes the approach taken to gather the performance data.
The bulk of the report analyzes the data gathered, which showed that
most interfaces were 10 to 30 percent faster under MACH.
