Free Command Line timer

Command line or batch files are incredibly important to me as an analyst.

I cannot count the number of times creating a simple script has saved me countless hours. Some examples that come mind;

  • Performing testing when I’m working alone

  • Running tests unattended

  • Having other people perform your testing

  • Running a task as part of a notification system

In this article I use a simple example of recording the start/stop or elapsed time when copying a file. This can be easily modified for a wget, iperf, iperf3 copy, etc.

I would strongly encourage you to get a little familiar with this as a valuable skill and to better understand similar commercial applications that you may have.
