Since the OP is interested in latencies, he may also want to look at
the tools lower down the stack for pinning processes and interrupts to
physical CPUs (eg. Tuna http://userweb.kernel.org/~acme/tuna/), and
also at RT kernels.

Red Hat is funding a large amount of research in this area under the
general brand name of MRG (Messaging, Real time and Grid computing):

http://www.redhat.com/mrg/

and we're doing this in partnership with some very large banks.

None of that is really specific to OCaml.  In fact the banks tend to
use Java(!)
