This is the same as measuring the position _AND_ momentum. If you don't get this then you need to write more OS code... that runs On 16 or so architectures... For various degrees of heck? Large quantities of 1? Profiling under a "reasonable" load and that is where all benchmarks fall apart. My definition of a "reasonable" load is different from everyone else's.
