the interface may not be implemented on Linux.
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
The conditions under which one process has permission to obtain the
CPU-time clock ID of other processes are implementation-defined.
The clock_getcpuclockid() function shall fail if:
EPERM The requesting process does not have permission to access the
CPU-time clock for the process.
The clock_getcpuclockid() function may fail if:
ESRCH No process can be found corresponding to the process specified
