|Abstract||In this paper we study the technology of exact measurement of execution time of functions for the applications realised on various operating systems and platforms. For matching are selected OS Windows XP and Linux and languages C and Java, creating applications in the form of binary and a byte-code accordingly. We consider the toolkit used at carrying out of various methods of time measurement, grounded both on resources specific to OS, and on platform-independent and hardware-specialised methods. Results of measurements are presented.|
