How to get real cputime? RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    hello

    I want to get real CPU compute time When I run the command under the line.

    > task view TaskID

     

    Submit time          : 5/14/2008 1:44:15 PM
    Start time           : 5/14/2008 1:44:15 PM
    End time             : 5/14/2008 1:45:29 PM
    Kernel time          : 0.296
    User time            : 73.312
    Working set          : 812312 KB

     

    the wall clock time is 74 sec (End time - Start time).

     

    Is Kernel time or User time a real cputime ?

    If Kernel / User time is not a real cputime, how to get it ?

     

    Thanks.

  • "Kernel Time" and "User Time" repsresent the actual User Mode and Kernel Mode CPU time reported by the compute node.  Adding them together will give you the total CPU time for the task.
