http://stackoverflow.com – I have been experimenting with the time command(/usr/bin/time). I made the time command run as below /usr/bin/time -v sleep 30 On the other terminal I did a ps -a and found out the PID of sleep process.Now I send a message to the sleep using kill -1 PID which terminated the process sleep.Since the sleep was running on the care of time,it listed out the resource usage statistics as below Command being timed: "sleep 30" User time (seconds): 0.00 System time (seconds): 0.00 Percent of CPU this job got: 0% Elapsed (wall clock) time (h:mm:ss or m:ss): 0:21.81 Average shared text size (kbytes): (HowTos)
