Power Measurement on Linux using PMBUS

I'm developing an application that needs power measurements from the UCD9248. 

I used the following techtip to write the module,


however on time stamping i realized that getting one sample of all ten rails takes about 18ms, whereas i need to measure every 10ms. 


Is this measurement correct? If so , is there something i can do to speedup the process?


The power controller data sheet states that the ucd9248 is capable of measuring at 200ksps. and that the PMBUS can support upto 400KHZ, do i have to change some hardware parameters to achieve this?


If it is not possible to do this, is there some other way to measure power at this rate?


Thank you in advance
