There's an abundance of benchmarks (IMB, netpipe, SkaMPI...) and performance
analysis tools (Scalasca, Vampir, Paraver, Opt, Jumpshot).

However, reading through your initial description on Tuesday, none of these
fit: You want to actually measure the kernel time on TCP communication costs.

So, have You tried attaching "strace -c -f -p PID" to the actual application

As a starter You may invoke the benchmark using:
   mpirun -np 4 strace -c -f ./benchmark
(which however includes initialization and all other system calls)...

Hope this helps.
