capturing run time

Hi, is there a simple script/tool to capture how long a job runs? Example. If I kick off a job that is running a query, can I log the exact length of time from starting the job to when it completes? Thanks

Re: capturing run time

Hi.
The usual answer to that is to store beginning and ending time (in seconds) in macro-variables, then substract.[pre]
%LET begin = %SYSFUNC(TIME()) ;
/* the job */
%LET end = %SYSFUNC(TIME()) ;
%PUT it took %SYSFUNC(ROUND(&end - &begin, 0.01)) seconds to complete the job ;
[/pre]
Regards.
