Syntax: os.times()



Parameter: No parameter is required.

Return Type: This method returns a tuple-like object with five named attributes which represents the current global process times. The five attributes are as follows:

  • user: It represents the user time.
  • system: It represents the system time
  • children_user: It represents the user time of all child processes.
  • children_system: It represents the system time of all child processes.
  • elapsed: It represents the elapsed real time since a fixed point in the past.

Note: On Windows, only user and system attributes are known and other attributes have value 0.

Code: Use of os.times() method to get the current global process times.




# Python program to explain os.times() method 
    
# importing os module 
import os
  
# Get the current global
# process times
# using os.times() method
curr_gp_times = os.times()
  
# Print the current global
# process times
print(curr_gp_times)
Output:
posix.times_result(user=0.03, system=0.01, children_user=0.0, children_system=0.0, elapsed=17370844.95)
