TIMES(2)                      System Calls Manual                     TIMES(2)



NAME
       times - get process times

SYNOPSIS
       times(buffer)
       struct tbuffer *buffer;

DESCRIPTION
       Times  returns  time-accounting information for the current process and
       for the terminated child processes of the current process.   All  times
       are in 1/HZ seconds, where HZ=60 in North America.

       After the call, the buffer will appear as follows:

       struct tbuffer {
            long proc_user_time;
            long proc_system_time;
            long child_user_time;
            long child_system_time;
       };

       The  children  times  are  the  sum of the children's process times and
       their children's times.

SEE ALSO
       time(1), time(2)
