I know what system and user time mean, but don't usually see these terms used together with 'high'. What precisely do you mean here?

Question Hi

Hi , I just need the command to include in a script to find the CPU's %system high time and user high time . Not together , but in two different command lines .Smilie . Also how about system (kernel) time , and user time .Am i being any familiar with the terms?

What Operating System and version do you have and what Shell do you use?

These "high" values (whatever they mean?). Over what sample period of time?

What record keeping is present on your system? Do you have sar record keeping implemented for example?

Question hi

Thanks for your reply , I am like just few days of research new to scripting . I have Ubuntu installed (VirtualBox) and i need to create a simple script that would drive the system time , the user time , and elapsed time without affecting the first two (i.e. system time & user time) . Not sure how to start with this .

A part of my script where i need help is
case $choice in
echo "Hi $USER"
echo ""
echo "Cpu's system time"
echo "---------------------------------------------"
This is where i need help ;; Smilie

I went through google and it says to use top or vmstat to know the cpu's system time .Not sure how Right i m . I have sysstat package installed ..

What do you mean 'drive the system time' and 'drive the user time', etc? And what do you mean by 'system high time' and all that? You keep saying these things over and over, and giving more details on what you've tried is appreciated, but we're no closer to understanding what you actually want until you define these unique terms.

oops my bad !
okay i'll be easier ..
All i want is a script that would show me the system time and user time which is a part of CPU usage . did i make sense?
