The overhead created by the HMM when monitoring function calls is 3.
The discrepancy in the overhead in our techniques is due to difference in the size of the data streams (there are many more system calls than function calls in a typical application log).
We have described our effort to provide a lightweight anomaly detector of high performance parallel programs, and we have demonstrated that system calls and function calls can be used to verify the correct execution of an MPI application in a cluster of Linux workstations with an acceptable impact on the performance.

If classes with virtual member functions or classes that are defined using multiple and/or virtual inheritance are used as implementations of signature types, we need information in the signature table to perform a signature member function call correctly.
To allow finding the appropriate virtual function table in a member function call, an object contains possibly multiple pointers to virtual function tables.
In this case, the member function call might produce unpredictable results.
The signature member function call p[right arrow]f () now results in the conversion function S_C_f being executed.
