clock_getcpuclockid - access a process CPU-time clock (ADVANCED REALTIME)
The clock_getcpuclockid() function shall return the clock ID of the CPU-time clock of the process specified by pid. If the process described by pid exists and the calling process has permission, the clock ID of this clock shall be returned in clock_id.
If pid is zero, the clock_getcpuclockid() function shall return the clock ID of the CPU-time clock of the process making the call, in clock_id.
The conditions under which one process has permission to obtain the CPU-time clock ID of other processes are implementation-defined.
Upon successful completion, clock_getcpuclockid() shall return zero; otherwise, an error number shall be returned to indicate the error.
The clock_getcpuclockid() function shall fail if:
- The requesting process does not have permission to access the CPU-time clock for the process.
The clock_getcpuclockid() function may fail if:
- No process can be found corresponding to the process specified by pid.
The clock_getcpuclockid() function is part of the Process CPU-Time Clocks option and need not be provided on all implementations.
First released in Issue 6. Derived from IEEE Std 1003.1d-1999.
In the SYNOPSIS, the inclusion of <sys/types.h> is no longer required.
