SubjectRe: loaded router, excessive getnstimeofday in oprofile

> What utility does the time of hitting the socket get you?

The earliest time the application could have been expected to start
processing the request. Until it hits the socket, it might as well be
somewhere in the cloud. By that reasoning of course, one could argue
that a gettimeofday() call immediately following recv() would suffice.

Earlier in the thread mention was made of financial services types. If
someone has knowledge of the (probably) arcane rules under which they
must operate it would be great to hear more. Does some entity like the
SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission in the United States) mandate
some sort of timestamp for when the trading request "arrives at the
trading system" and do they define that "arriving at the trading system"
means?
