Below you will find some measurements on the performance of Ouroboros.
Local IPC performance test This test uses the oping tool to measure round trip time. This tools generates traffic from a single thread. The server has a single thread that handles ping requests and sends responses.
$ oping -n oping -i 0 -s <sdu size> The figure below shows the round-trip-time (rtt) in milliseconds (ms) for IPC over a local layer for different packet sizes, measured on an Intel Core i7 4500U (2 cores @ 2.
