Time Terminal Command

There is a very handy way to know how fast a terminal command runs. Simply add the command ‘time’ before a terminal command to get back a helpful listing of how long it took to run.

  • real – The actual elapsed time from start to finish
  • user – The amount of CPU time spent executing the process in user-mode
  • sys – The amount of CPU time spent in the kernel for the process
