While running the ps command, the output is as follows :
PID TTY TIME CMD
494 pts/0 00:00:00 ps
29487 pts/0 00:00:00 bash
32617 pts/0 00:00:02 gedit
Why is the TIME 00:00:00 for bash?
According to GeeksforGeeks, the explanation is as follows :
It is nothing but the total accumulated CPU utilization time for any process and 00:00:00 indicates no CPU time has been given by the kernel till now. In above example we found that, for bash no CPU time has been given.
Does someone has a better explanation ?
