- Average number of elements linked to the readyq per second (some kind
of loadavg for us, i.e. answers the question "should the user switch to
the scalable scheduler?")
- Average number of outstanding timers per second (i.e. answers the
question "should the user switch to the binary heap-based timer
- Total number of timers missing their wakeup date from more than a
given threshold.
- Pressure on the system heap (average and max, probably).
- Transfer rate on message pipes (i.e. nucleus/pipe.c); at some point,
it would be interesting to extend this to skins exposing data channels
(e.g. native API's queues, POSIX mqueues).
