Learn about wall clock time, and the strace command to get time information.
- [Narrator] A really understandable way…to do timing is just to find out how long something took…in the real world, and if it takes a long time…then you could use the date command,…and then you run it, and when it finishes three days later…you check the date again.…You realize, hey, three days in between.…That's not too common.…Generally you're more interested in time…and one thing you can do with Bash is have…the shell prompt include the time.…So then you can just look at the two shell prompts…and see the difference.…
And we have the time command.…The time command might be at user bin time…or maybe just bin time and this is a prefix command.…So you use the time command to run another command.…We'll use the time command to run the sleep command…and we tell sleep to sleep for two seconds…and after two seconds when that's done…time prints out the elapsed time,…and we have time use in the CPU in user space…and in the kernel which are both zero…'cause the sleep command uses so little CPU…it doesn't even show up.…
It's too small to measure,…
