I encountered the following section in my operating systems textbook:
At any given point in time, while the program is executing, this process can be uniquely characterized by a number of elements, including the following:
- Accounting information: May include the amount of processor time and clock time used, time limits, account numbers, and so on.
I am wondering what the difference is between processor time and clock time in this context?
I would greatly appreciate it if the knowledgeable members of this site could please take the time to clarify this.
