GETRUSAGE(P)			    POSIX Programmer's Manual			     GETRUSAGE(P)

NAME
       getrusage - get information about resource utilization

SYNOPSIS
       #include <sys/resource.h>

       int getrusage(int who, struct rusage *r_usage);

DESCRIPTION
       The  getrusage()  function  shall  provide  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 shall be returned about resources used by the current process.
       If the value of the who argument is RUSAGE_CHILDREN, information shall be  returned  about
       resources  used	by  the terminated and waited-for children of the current process. If the
       child is never waited for (for example, 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.

RETURN VALUE
       Upon  successful  completion,  getrusage() shall return 0; otherwise, -1 shall be returned
       and errno set to indicate the error.

ERRORS
       The getrusage() function shall fail if:

       EINVAL The value of the who argument is not valid.

       The following sections are informative.

EXAMPLES
   Using getrusage()
       The following example returns information about the resources used by the current process.

	      #include <sys/resource.h>
	      ...
	      int who = RUSAGE_SELF;
	      struct rusage usage;
	      int ret;

	      ret = getrusage(who, &usage);
