> ... but I am just wondering what counts to the cpu processing time, as sleep doesnt use the cpu but the two numbers on the left 10usecs and 50 usecs do so is it the numbers on the left and certain syscalls like read write spawn are using cpu?
Between the values of, say, 10usecs and 50usecs we assume that the process on the CPU is performing some calculation/computation requiring the CPU. Have a look at that in the sample solution (verbose) and let me know if that's not clear.
