This also kicked-off a discussion on c.o.v. https://groups.google.com/g/comp.os.vms/c/Eu2eP4Yid7Y
In that post I observe a very significant increase in KERNEL mode usage on X86 V9.2 compared to my Alpha V8.4 and basically ask why? (my uninformed conjecture was memory KESU access via emulation, probably at least that)
Is there someone or somewhere that can explain why the KERNEL mode is the standout in this simple baseline test?
For those who will not read the full test of the above post I'd like to emphasise the ZAP crawl was the most equitable (and easy for me to setup).
ZAP is also used for this KERNEL mode exercise because it results in a
"crawl" of similar portions of underlying files and executables (scripts)
across multiple independent systems and so represents similar profiles of
NETWORK, SYSTEM SERVICE, APPLICATION ACTIVATION AND OTHER ASPECTS of system
