getrusage - get information about resource utilization
int getrusage(int who, struct rusage *r_usage);
The getrusage() function provides measures of the resources used by
the current process or its terminated and waited-for child processes.
If the value of the who argument is RUSAGE_SELF, information is
returned about resources used by the current process. If the value of
the who argument is RUSAGE_CHILDREN, information is returned about
resources used by the terminated and waited-for children of the
current process. If the child is never waited for (for instance, if
the parent has SA_NOCLDWAIT set or sets SIGCHLD to SIG_IGN), the
resource information for the child process is discarded and not
included in the resource information provided by getrusage(). The
r_usage argument is a pointer to an object of type struct rusage in
which the returned information is stored.
If the current process is multi-threaded, getrusage() returns the
information about the resources used by all the active and the reaped
threads/light-weight processes in the current process if the value of
the who argument is RUSAGE_SELF. If the value of the who argument is
RUSAGE_CHILDREN in a multi-threaded process, information returned is
the same as it would be for a single-threaded process.
Upon successful completion, getrusage() returns 0. Otherwise, -1 is
returned, and errno is set to indicate the error.
The getrusage() function will fail if:
[EINVAL] The value of the who argument is not valid.
exit(2), sigaction(2), time(1), times(2), wait(1), <sys/resource.h>.
