NAME

       lat_fcntl - fcntl file locking benchmark

SYNOPSIS

       lat_ctx [ -P <parallelism> ] [ -W <warmups> ] [ -N <repetitions> ]

DESCRIPTION

       lat_fcntl  is  a  client/server  program  that  measures  file  locking
       latencies.  The benchmark alternately locks and unlocks files  so  that
       only one of the client or server is running at a time, similar to ‘‘hot
       potato’’ message passing benchmarks.  No other  work  is  done  in  the
       processes.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

       Funding   for  the  development  of  this  tool  was  provided  by  Sun
       Microsystems Computer Corporation.
