CPU & memory usage


I'ld like to gather CPU & memory usage while a program is executing and print out a report. Does linux support any functions to track system usage statistics that I can use in the C++ program?
On a side note, does C++ have any such APIs?

Thanks in advance...

You might get what you want from /usr/bin/time --verbose

time is a shell builtin with much simpler output so use /usr/bin/time

This will give you the stats when the program exits. If you want info while the program is executing take a look at ps and all of its options.
