Standard is to use CPU time, not wall clock time. However, for
parallel jobs, measuring CPU time might be difficult. Often you
only see the usage on the master node of a job, ignoring the
CPU time spent on the slave nodes. 'tight integration' is usually
required to get valid measurements from all nodes.
