  1. CPU time

    CPU time is the amount of time for which a central processing unit was used for processing instructions of a computer program, as opposed to, for example, waiting for input/output operations. The CPU time is often measured in clock ticks or seconds. CPU time is also mentioned as percentage of the CPU's capacity at any given time on multi-tasking environment. That helps in figuring out how a CPU’s computational power is being shared among multiple computer programs. In contrast, elapsed real time is the time taken from the start of a computer program until the end as measured by an ordinary clock. Elapsed real time includes I/O time and all other types of waits incurred by the program.
