 Solaris Performance Optimization for C/C++ Systems

"This article describes how to optimize the performance of enterprise systems that employ extensive time-stamping using the time(2) system call in the Solaris Operating System. This optimization applies especially to the financial market, and is based on our work with a number of different independent software vendors (ISVs). We have observed that the common practice of "time-stamping" messages, transactions, or other objects in a system can consume more resources than the developer might expect. In these systems, the time(2) system call is used to obtain the current time with which to stamp each message or object. (The time(2) system call returns the value of time in seconds since 00:00:00 UTC, January 1, 1970.)"
