NAME

       pthread_getcpuclockid - retrieve ID of a thread's CPU time clock

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_gettime(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 consumed 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
