pthread_getcpuclockid — access a thread CPU-time clock (ADVANCED REALTIME THREADS)


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

int pthread_getcpuclockid(pthread_t thread_id, clockid_t *clock_id);


The pthread_getcpuclockid() function shall return in clock_id the clock ID of the CPU-time clock of the thread specified by thread_id, if the thread specified by thread_id exists.

Return Value

Upon successful completion, pthread_getcpuclockid() shall return zero; otherwise, an error number shall be returned to indicate the error.


No errors are defined.

The following sections are informative.

Application Usage

The pthread_getcpuclockid() function is part of the Thread CPU-Time Clocks option and need not be provided on all implementations.


If an implementation detects use of a thread ID after the end of its lifetime, it is recommended that the function should fail and report an [ESRCH] error.
