model history
command
Syntax
 model history <name s > keyword

Create a history of a model quantity. These quantities are mostly associated with a process.
The keyword name may be used to give the history a unique identifier for later reference. If name is not specified the history will be given a name automatically based on the internally assigned ID number.

Values associated with the dynamic process.
 cyclestotal
The total number of cycles accumulated while this process is active.
 timetotal
The total accumulated time while this process is active.
