Smile delay


Hi,

I have two micro processor systems(linux in both) running the same application,and interconnecting with tcp.tcp is also used for user communication to those systems.
I measure the time application takes to run, it takes around 40 msec.This can go on for ours the time is
always around the same.However suddenly the time can go up to 200-300 msec.
Everything is the same , application and user communciation.
There is no hard disk in this system, just ram and flash to boot.
What could be causing this delay?grateful for sugestions.
H

Linux is not a real time OS - there are many other processes going in the background that sometimes steal CPU cycles and delay execution of your program.
