The thread system does not record the run-time of threads, even though
it wouldn't be too hard to add it to the schedulers. Recording the
memory usage is much harder and almost impossible in general.

Using processes you can of course use the utilities provided by your
OS to perform measurements. For IPC, scsh provides you with pipes and
a rich networking API.
