echo $dat["ru_majflt"];        // number of page faults

echo $dat["ru_utime.tv_usec"]; // user time used (microseconds)

Changelog

Version Description
7.0.0 This function is now supported on Windows.

Notes

Note:

On Windows getrusage() will only return the following members:

  • "ru_stime.tv_sec"
  • "ru_stime.tv_usec"
  • "ru_utime.tv_sec"
  • "ru_utime.tv_usec"
  • "ru_majflt" (only if who is RUSAGE_SELF)
  • "ru_maxrss" (only if who is RUSAGE_SELF)

If getrusage() is called with who set to 1 (RUSAGE_CHILDREN), then resource usage for threads are collected (meaning that internally the function is called with RUSAGE_THREAD).

Note:

on BeOS 2000, only the following members are returned:

  • "ru_stime.tv_sec"
  • "ru_stime.tv_usec"
  • "ru_utime.tv_sec"
  • "ru_utime.tv_usec"

getrusage() reports kernel counters that are updated only once application loses context and a switch to kernel space happens. For example on modern Linux server kernels that would mean that getrusage() calls would return information rounded at 10ms, desktop kernels - at 1ms.

getrusage() isn't usable for micro-measurements at all - and getmicrotime(true) might be much more valuable resource.
