The kernel responsiveness of your system is displayed in the status panel. The values represent the highest time interval in which
the operating system kernel responded to a hardware signal.
Your kernel responsiveness is used as a measurement for the real-time processing capabilities of your system. If you wish to use your system for
a task which requires real-time processing such as live audio, your system should be considered suitable only if highest kernel responsiveness is low and no
latency spikes appear. If you do not need to use your system for real-time processing tasks, you should not need to worry about an occasional
spike in kernel responsiveness or even if the values are poor.
Note that your kernel responsiveness does not reflect the overall performance of your system.
If WhySoSlow tells you that your kernel responsiveness is poor, you may want to use our product LatencyMon to further investigate the problem.
