The latter, i.e. difference in concepts, but I believe it is also what the implementation of uname follows

Thanks! How do you investigate if "they're showing up in X and just need to be enabled"? What are the two used for respectively? How different are their purposes?

comment How to record the actual running time of a program with other programs running?
Thanks! On a shared cluster, it is difficult to run it without other concurrent programs. Some said the scheduler will only run jobs when there are sufficient resources, which still can't prevent the interference from other running programs, correct?

comment How to record the actual running time of a program with other programs running?
Thanks! (1) I need the real/elapsed/wall time not counting interference by other running programs. How can I get that? (2) if your case work, how can I know the pid without interfering timing the program?
