CLOCK_GETCPUCLOCKID(3)	   Linux Programmer's Manual	CLOCK_GETCPUCLOCKID(3)

NAME
       clock_getcpuclockid - obtain ID of a process CPU-time clock

SYNOPSIS
       #include <time.h>

       int clock_getcpuclockid(pid_t pid, clockid_t *clock_id);

       Link with -lrt (only for glibc versions before 2.17).

   Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

       clock_getcpuclockid():
	   _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L

DESCRIPTION
       The clock_getcpuclockid() function obtains the ID of the CPU-time clock
       of the process whose ID is pid, and returns it in the location  pointed
       to  by  clock_id.   If  pid  is zero, then the clock ID of the CPU-time
       clock of the calling process is returned.

RETURN VALUE
       On success, clock_getcpuclockid() returns 0; on error, it  returns  one
       of the positive error numbers listed in ERRORS.

ERRORS
       ENOSYS The  kernel  does not support obtaining the per-process CPU-time
	      clock of another process, and pid does not specify  the  calling
	      process.

       EPERM  The caller does not have permission to access the CPU-time clock
	      of the process specified by  pid.	  (Specified  as  an  optional
	      error in POSIX.1-2001; does not occur on Linux unless the kernel
	      does not support obtaining the  per-process  CPU-time  clock  of
	      another process.)

       ESRCH  There is no process with the ID pid.

VERSIONS
       The  clock_getcpuclockid() function is available in glibc since version
       2.2.

ATTRIBUTES
   Multithreading (see pthreads(7))
       The clock_getcpuclockid() function is thread-safe.

CONFORMING TO
       POSIX.1-2001.

NOTES
       Calling clock_gettime(2) with the  clock	 ID  obtained  by  a  call  to
       clock_getcpuclockid()  with  a pid of 0, is the same as using the clock
       ID CLOCK_PROCESS_CPUTIME_ID.

EXAMPLE
       The example program below obtains the CPU-time clock ID of the  process
       whose  ID  is given on the command line, and then uses clock_gettime(2)
       to obtain the time on that clock.  An example run is the following:

	   $ ./a.out 1		       # Show CPU clock of init process
	   CPU-time clock for PID 1 is 2.213466748 seconds

   Program source

       #define _XOPEN_SOURCE 600
       #include <stdio.h>
       #include <unistd.h>
       #include <stdlib.h>
       #include <time.h>

       int
       main(int argc, char *argv[])
       {
	   clockid_t clockid;
	   struct timespec ts;

	   if (argc != 2) {
	       fprintf(stderr, "%s <process-ID>\n", argv[0]);
	    exit(EXIT_FAILURE);
	   }

	   if (clock_getcpuclockid(atoi(argv[1]), &clockid) != 0) {
	    perror("clock_getcpuclockid");
	    exit(EXIT_FAILURE);
	   }

	   if (clock_gettime(clockid, &ts) == -1) {
	    perror("clock_gettime");
	    exit(EXIT_FAILURE);
	   }

	   printf("CPU-time clock for PID %s is %ld.%09ld seconds\n",
		argv[1], (long) ts.tv_sec, (long) ts.tv_nsec);
	   exit(EXIT_SUCCESS);
       }
