How efficient are JACK® agents?

JACK® agents are extremely efficient and light weight. This is demonstrated by having JACK running on a handheld Psion 5mx.

Benchmarks using JACK have shown the following:

  • Agents can be created at a rate of over 1,000 per second. An example program which times the creation of 100,000 agents reported 72,811ms total time running on a slow PC under Linux.
  • Moreover, Agent destruction delay is insignificant. It is of the order of 10µs (ten microseconds) or 100,000 agents destroyed per second. An example program which times the destruction of 100,000 agents reported 329ms total time running on a slow PC under Linux.
  • Agents can send messages to another agent within the same process in times of the order of 10µs (ten microseconds) or 100,000 messages per second. An example program which times the sending of 200,000 such messages reported 2662ms total time running on a slow PC under Linux.
