I want to measure sometimes the real runtime of a program for a certain task (which can be hours).
Think of an video encoding program or a huge source compilation or a defragmentation
of a whole partition or a duplicate search through all partitons of x GB.
All these programs run for hours. What I want to do now is to start the program in the evening
and let it run during the night.
When the actual work ends the total time which was necessary for this
task should be logged.
In order to compare different settings or multiple programs I would like to know the time
which was needed by the prorgam.
Keep in mind that the progam is still running but with a CPU usage
of 0 or close to 0.
I would appreciate a utility function which monitor the CPU usage and the hard disc accesses.
When I ends for lets say more than 1 minutes it should be assumed that the program had finished its work.
Is it possible to include such a function in ProcessTamer?
Or does someone know a program which offers such a feature ?
