I am looking to add a new hypercall to XEN-3.4.3 and invoke this new hypercall very often (may be 50 to 500 thousands of times a sec) from a HVM guest.
I would like to see the cost of this to tradeoff with performance.

Could you please advice if there are tools for this or any other method that i can use?

Thanks in advance.
