Average Current Measurement from E3646A Power Supply

Hi,

I'm currently trying to use the E3646A power supply to measure current consumption of a chip.

I have a question about the MEAS:CURR command.
Does it give you an instantaneous current consumption value or does it give you a average value over some time period?

If it does report an instantaneous value, is there a way to get average current measurement from the power supply?

Thanks,
