Hi Giuseppe,

I assume you are using some version of Unix. I think kernel time is the 
time your process spends in executing system code, i.e. code that is 
part of the kernel. This is of course OS dependent, and also dependent 
on what your code is doing, but normally ECLiPSe does not spend much 
time in system code. Have you tried running your ECLiPSe code on its own 
and see how much time is spent in kernel time?
