So you won’t be benchmarking the code, but rather thehardware.That said, I haven’t done packet forward rate benchmarks. I did do somelatency benchmarks, but those were a while ago. If I recall correctly, Imeasured RXinterrupt-TXcommand latencies of ~4000 clock cycles (on myPentium Pro 200), so that’s about 0.02 msec. Of course, this tells onenothing about the hardware-to-hardware latency.greetings,Lennert
