> 7. How does clock_gettime(CLOCK_REALTIME) work? Let's assume the most recent > production releases of Solaris on the following:
> 32bit single core, single socket x86
> 64bit single core, single socket amd64
> 64bit multi-core, multi-socket sparc (newest generation)
> 64bit multi-core, single-socket laptop/notebook sparc
> 64bit multi-core, single-socket laptop/notebook amd64
> 8. Are there any interesting points / implementation notes worth knowing about > clock_gettime(CLOCK_REALTIME)? Any notes regarding virtual machines?
