usleep(somemoretime);
qb_util_stopwatch_split(sw);

idx = qb_util_stopwatch_split_last(sw);
do {
     split = qb_util_stopwatch_time_split_get(sw, idx, idx);
     qb_log(LOG_INFO, "split %d is %"PRIu64"", last, split);
     idx--;

Function Documentation

char* qb_strerror_r (int errnum, char * buf, size_t buflen)

strerror_r replacement.

int32_t qb_thread_lock (qb_thread_lock_t * tl)

Calls either pthread_mutex_lock() or pthread_spin_lock().

qb_thread_lock_t* qb_thread_lock_create (qb_thread_lock_type_t type)

Create a new lock of the given type.

Parameters:

type QB_THREAD_LOCK_SHORT == spinlock (where available, else mutex) QB_THREAD_LOCK_LONG == mutex

Returns:

pointer to qb_thread_lock_type_t or NULL on error.

int32_t qb_thread_lock_destroy (qb_thread_lock_t * tl)

Calls either pthread_mutex_destro() or pthread_spin_destroy().

int32_t qb_thread_trylock (qb_thread_lock_t * tl)

Calls either pthread_mutex_trylock() or pthread_spin_trylock().

int32_t qb_thread_unlock (qb_thread_lock_t * tl)

Calls either pthread_mutex_unlock() or pthread_spin_unlock.

void qb_timespec_add_ms (struct timespec * ts, int32_t ms)

Add milliseconds onto the timespec.

Parameters:

ts the ts to add to
ms the amount of milliseconds to increment ts

uint64_t qb_util_nano_current_get (void)

Get the current number of nano secounds produced by the systems incrementing clock (CLOCK_MONOTOMIC if available).

uint64_t qb_util_nano_from_epoch_get (void)

Get the time in nano seconds since epoch.

uint64_t qb_util_nano_monotonic_hz (void)

Get the frequence of the clock used in qb_util_nano_current_get().

void qb_util_set_log_function (qb_util_log_fn_t fn)

Use this function to output libqb internal log message as you wish.

qb_util_stopwatch_t* qb_util_stopwatch_create (void)

Create a Stopwatch (to time operations)

void qb_util_stopwatch_free (qb_util_stopwatch_t * sw)

Free the stopwatch.

float qb_util_stopwatch_sec_elapsed_get (qb_util_stopwatch_t * sw)

Get the elapsed time in seconds. (it must have been started and stopped).

uint64_t qb_util_stopwatch_split (qb_util_stopwatch_t * sw)

Create a new time split (or lap time)

Parameters:

sw the stopwatch

Return values:

the relative split time in micro seconds
0 if no more splits available

int32_t qb_util_stopwatch_split_ctl (qb_util_stopwatch_t * sw, uint32_t max_splits, uint32_t options)

Parameters:

sw the stopwatch
max_splits maximum number of time splits
options (0 or QB_UTIL_SW_OVERWRITE )

Return values:

0 on success
-errno on failure

uint32_t qb_util_stopwatch_split_last (qb_util_stopwatch_t * sw)

Get the last split index to be used by qb_util_stopwatch_time_split_get()

Note:

this is zero based

Parameters:

sw the stopwatch

Returns:

the last entry index

void qb_util_stopwatch_start (qb_util_stopwatch_t * sw)

Start the stopwatch. This also acts as a reset. Essentially it sets the starting time and clears the splits.

void qb_util_stopwatch_stop (qb_util_stopwatch_t * sw)

Stop the stopwatch. This just allows you to get the elapsed time. So you can call this multiple times. Do not call qb_util_stopwatch_start() unless you want to reset the stopwatch.

uint64_t qb_util_stopwatch_time_split_get (qb_util_stopwatch_t * sw, uint32_t receint, uint32_t older)

Read the time split (in us) from 'receint' to 'older'. If older == receint then the cumulated split will be returned (from the stopwatch start).

Parameters:

sw the stopwatch
receint split
older split

Return values:

the split time in micro seconds
0 if not a valid split

uint64_t qb_util_stopwatch_us_elapsed_get (qb_util_stopwatch_t * sw)

Get the elapsed time in micro seconds. (it must have been started and stopped).

void qb_util_timespec_from_epoch_get (struct timespec * ts)

Get the time in timespec since epoch.

Parameters:

ts (out) the timespec

Returns:

status (0 == ok, -errno on error)
