# runlim

A tool for sampling and limiting time and memory usage of a program and its child processes using the proc file system on Linux. More information: http://fmv.jku.at/runlim.

• Print the time and memory usage of a command:

runlim {{command}} {{command_arguments}}

• Log statistics to a file instead of stdout:

runlim --output-file={{path/to/file}} {{command}} {{command_arguments}}

• Limit time to an upper bound (in seconds):

runlim --time-limit={{number}} {{command}} {{command_arguments}}

• Limit real-time to an upper bound (in seconds):

runlim --real-time-limit={{number}} {{command}} {{command_arguments}}

• Limit space to an upper bound (in MB):

runlim --space-limit={{number}} {{command}} {{command_arguments}}
