This effect comes from the optimal settings' ability to minimize kernel interrupt
generation, hence the CPU cycles can be preserved.
Code generated by a compiler without OCG technology results in an average of 108 cycles to execute the interrupt
service routine and main loop overhead for each byte of data.
Breaks in the confirmation process can also occur when the identity holder is so rigid in requiring reflected appraisal to match the identity standard that constant readjustments of behaviors interrupt
Another key status return capability is that the Set Device Bits FIS can notify the host that multiple commands have been completed at the same time, ensuring that the host receives just one interrupt
for multiple command completions.
Actually, there are four elements that contribute to the overall delay between an interrupt
and the time the associated application program starts to run: interrupt
handler duration, scheduler latency, and scheduling duration.
The new RTOS, which now supports PowerPC, ARM, MIPS, and XScale processors, features full memory protection and guaranteed resource availability, yet still delivers sub-200-nsec interrupt
response and sub-microsecond context switching (as measured on a 233-MHz processor).
Note that whereas I/O devices such as disks generate interrupts
only as a result of requests from the operating system, and so are inherently flow-controlled, network interfaces generate unsolicited receive interrupts
The way in which the compiler manages interrupts
and memory usage can have a significant impact on power consumption.
In a storage system built from general-purpose microprocessors, each step is performed sequentially and requires an interrupt
service routine to be invoked.
By placing the processor into the Sleep mode, only active modules are powered to respond to interrupts
and wake up signal requests.
A Maximum Transfer Unit (MTU) can be defined for a sequence of up to 64 frames, allowing Fibre Channel to transfer much more data between host interrupts
The electronic payment reminder system, which interrupts
the car's starter if payments are late, substantially reduces the risk normally associated with financing cars to individuals with low credit scores.
