I execute and
time many commands (i.e.
SSH and I collect the total time needed for the implied service to complete (i.e. DNS). So I collect the
sys time as the
real time counts time when my process is blocking which I do not need...I guess.
But some of my tests had results as such:
real 3m22.033s user 0m0.009s sys 0m0.014s
I execute these tests on limited resources linux boxes but still, the
real time is significantly high. Would this only indicate that the box is VERY busy running different processes ? Is it still correct to add up the
sys times to know how much the service took ?
