Additionally, the information in the /usr/proc/bin directory contains process tools that can be used to display detailed information about processes, in /proc, which is the process file system (procfs). It stores images of active processes by PID number. The ptime command may be what you are looking for. Do a man on proc for more info on the tools available to you. Good luck!!
