CPU time higher than wall-clock time?

Postby RaymondKurzweil » Wed Feb 10, 2010 2:38 pm

My understanding is that the CPU time can never be higher than the wall-clock time on a single core computer in the source view. However, while profiling my application this does seem to be the case. Can somebody explain to me what I am missing here?

Hi,

a couple of quick questions:

- which metric are you viewing your results in?
- does this appear to happen in other timing modes (method level, line level)

Hi,

The metric is milliseconds and I only have one option for the timing mode: line-level and method-level (only methods with source).
