The individual functions are then called within the API in isolation and timing and memory allocation data for each are collected and recorded. The recorded results are then bucketized according to a log base 2 method and made accessible by API users to indicate the performance of specific APIs.", "owner": "Microsoft Corporation", "owner_city": "Redmond", "owner_country": "US" }, { "title": "Methods and apparatus for determining aspects of multimedia performance of a wireless device", "publication_date": "2006/17/04", "number": "08719419", "url": "/2006/04/17/methods-and-apparatus-for-determining-aspects-of-multimedia-performance-of-a-wireless-device/", "abstract": "Apparatus and methods may include a multimedia test engine operable to exercise and test multimedia application programming interfaces (APIs) of a wireless device based upon execution of a test configuration comprising a test script downloadable to the wireless device.
