The software platforms that run on that hardware has also increased in complexity to exploit the new capabilities, so whilst software has far more power at its disposal it has come to rely on complex underpinnings to access that performance increase. The net result of this huge increase in the performance available to the ordinary application developer has been the blossoming of complex software. Software applications now pervade every aspect of global society. info CHAPTER 3: Hardware & Operating Systems Software is eating the world.

Let’s look at an example to see how this works with a real syscall. A very common Unix system call is gettimeofday(). This returns the “wallclock time” as understood by the operating system. Behind the scenes, it is actually just reading a kernel data structure to obtain the system clock time. As this is side-effect free, it does not actually need privileged access. If we can use vDSO to arrange for this data structure to be mapped into the address space of the user process, then there’s no need to perform the switch to kernel mode, and the refill penalty shown in Figure 3-6 does not have to be paid.

We will also catalogue some common best practices (and antipatterns) in the performance space.
