wall time
Jump to user comments
(Or "wall clock time") 1. "Real world" time (what the clock on
the wall shows), as opposed to the system clock's idea of
2. The real running time of a program, as opposed to the
number of ticks required to execute it (on a time-sharing
system these always differ, as no one program gets all the
ticks, and on multiprocessor systems with good thread support
one may get more processor time than real time).
