Calls to printf,fork, and many other routines are much more complex. These functions do require services from the UNIX kernel so they spend part of their time, if not most of it, in the system state. All I/O routines require the kernel's services. System-state CPU time is partially under the programmer's control. Although programmers cannot change the amount of time it takes to service any system call, they can rewrite the program to issue system calls more efficiently (for example, to make I/O transfers in larger blocks).
If you and your system's users haven't made some sort of pact about what is acceptable and what isn't, you will be forever arguing about whether performance is good or bad. Defining good and bad performance as precisely as possible will help to prevent petty wars and let you concentrate on providing performance where it's really needed. A performance agreement serves one other purpose. It gets you thinking about performance before it becomes an issue. All too often systems run for months without anyone looking to see what the I/O system or memory is doing.
If the CPU already spends a lot of time idle, buying an even faster processor will only increase its idle time. It will be even quicker at not doing any work. Your programs won't run a bit faster. You have bought more of a resource you don't need. Before you understand your system, you also need to find out what your memory and I/O subsystems are doing. In a way, CPU problems are the gap between memory problems and I/O problems. It's important to Page 6 ensure that you determine which subsystem is really in trouble.
