36. Process Resources

Chapter 36. Process Resources

Each process consumes system resources such as memory and CPU time. This chapter looks at resource-related system calls. We begin with the getrusage() system call, which allows a process to monitor the resources that it has used or that its children have used. We then look at the setrlimit() and getrlimit() system calls, which can be used to change and retrieve limits on the calling process’s consumption of various resources.
