time - times the execution of a command
time command [argument ...]
The time command prints to standard error the elapsed time during the execution of a command, the time spent in the system, and the time spent in execution of the command.
time has a resolution of seconds for real elapsed time. The accuracy of time is suspect, especially for small time measurements. Some implementations return 126 if command is found but cannot be invoked.
If the command is successfully invoked then time returns the exit status of the command. Otherwise it returns 127.
