Ah ok, so these add up pretty linear in both user and real.

Thats interesting as it should be comparable with:

and while it is for CPU time it isnt for wall time by a factor of 50%. So seems
we have quite some variance here ...

Expected I guess -- and it seems heavily I/O bound, this is single threaded
and the CPU is waiting 2/3rds of the time.

Thanks for the additional numbers!
