I would like to know the maximum latency when a script runs on the Rpi.

The script get the data from a sensor at the frequency of around 10 Hz. This data is supposed to execute a process.I need to test scripts with different programming languages and to know the performances...

  • Latency of what? Disk? Ram? GPIO? – Chad G Aug 3 at 15:49
  • Between asking the sensor and getting its data? Asking the sensor and process has startup? – Ingo Aug 3 at 20:14
  • The time that separates one interrupt from an action.. ex I've a switch attached to the gpio I press it and i need to know the total latency between I press the switch and (for example) one image is displayed, on song is laughed.. – Julien Blomme Aug 4 at 15:47
