I have created a shell script that starts the server then uploads a 1GB file using FTP… but how do I get the average CPU used in this whole process
You can try creating a parallel script that will monitor the CPU while the first one triggers the transfers.
Google for getting average CPU for a process on Linux.
I have found few articles on the web about getting the average values of cpu and memmory for a process but i am always getting 0 for every parameter
Is there a way to get average…
or do i need to take values say every 5 seconds through a parallel script and take average from the values
Sure, you can do that.
