user time, system time, real time .. reg
1. how sum of system time and user time can be greater than real time ?
2. Even though my program is not waiting for any I/O the real time is smaller than system time as shown
root@chaitu:/home/chaitu/Desktop/Chk# time ./new
Awaiting a reply.
I think thats because the computer is faster than real time - 'Wall Clock Time'
Real time might be 1 minute.
But the computer can do 600 minutes of work in 1 minute. Its been a long time since I've studied this, so please correct me if I am mistaken.
thanks for ur reply..
the things which I know regarding this are:
real time is the actual elapsed time(from beginning to end of the program)
user time includes time needed for executing user defined code.
System time for executing system calls(kernel time).
but I am confused as to how system time can be greater than real time. even i am not clear with it.
just waiting for someone to answer.
This thing would be of great help for me.
Someone can please explain it.
