Oh! Why didn't you say that?  ;-)

The following D script measures inter-zone network packet latency. Latency is very small on modern systems, as you'd expect from memory transfers :-)

You'll need to modify 'execname' values and possibly 'write' and 'recv' depending on the syscalls the app uses. You might also need to modify the values used in the lquantize call.

/execname=="sender" && valid==0/

/execname=="receiver" && valid==1/
  printf ("%d", latency);
  @l[pid]=lquantize(latency, 0, 500000, 10000);
