pthread_getcpuclockid


SYNOPSIS
       #include <pthread.h>
       #include <time.h>

       int pthread_getcpuclockid(pthread_t thread, clockid_t *clock_id);

       Compile and link with -pthread.

DESCRIPTION
       The  pthread_getcpuclockid()  function returns the clock ID for the CPU
       time clock of the thread thread.

RETURN VALUE
       On success, this function returns 0; on error,  it  returns  a  nonzero
       error number.

ERRORS
       ENOENT Per-thread CPU time clocks are not supported by the system.

       ESRCH  No thread with the ID thread could be found.

VERSIONS
       This function is available in glibc since version 2.2.

CONFORMING TO
       POSIX.1-2001.

NOTES
       When  thread  refers  to  the  calling thread, this function returns an
       identifier that refers to the  same  clock  manipulated  by  clock_get-
       time(2)    and    clock_settime(2)    when    given    the   clock   ID
       CLOCK_THREAD_CPUTIME_ID.

EXAMPLE
       The program below creates a thread and then  uses  clock_gettime(2)  to
       retrieve  the  total process CPU time, and the per-thread CPU time con-
       sumed by the two threads.  The following shell session shows an example
       run:
           $ ./a.out
           Main thread sleeping
           Subthread starting infinite loop
           Main thread consuming some CPU time...
           Process total CPU time:    1.368
           Main thread CPU time:      0.376
           Subthread CPU time:        0.992
