Updated time packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The GNU time utility monitors the use of system resources by a program. It does so by running the program, collecting information about the resources it uses while running, and displaying the results.
- Previously, the maximum resident set size (RSS) reported by the GNU time utility was incorrect. To fix this bug, the utility has been amended to reflect the fact that Linux kernel expresses the RSS value in kilobytes, not memory pages. The GNU time utility now reports the maximum RSS value correctly.
Users of time are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
