timer_getoverrun(3C)					  timer_getoverrun(3C)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     timer_getoverrun -	get the	posix timer overrun count

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     #include <time.h>

     int timer_getoverrun (timer_t timerid<b>);

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     timer_getoverrun returns the current expiration notification overrun
     count for the posix timer named by	timerid.

     An	overrun	count is the number of timer expiration	notifications which
     were not delivered	to the process due to an already pending signal	from
     timerid.  This overrun condition may occur	because	a given	posix timer
     can only queue one	signal to the process at any point in time.

     If	the returned overrun count is positive,	then the count represents the
     number of timer overruns up to, but not including {DELAYTIMER_MAX}	[see

     If	the returned overrun count is zero, then no timer expiration overruns
     have occurred between the last expiration notification and	the time of
     the call to timer_getoverrun.

     timer_getoverrun will fail	if the following is true:

     [EINVAL]	 The timerid does not name a valid posix timer.

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]

     timer_create(3C), timer_delete(3C), timer_gettime(3C), timer_settime(3C),

DIAGNOSTICS    [Toc]    [Back]

     Upon successful completion, the timer overrun count is returned to	the
     calling process. Otherwise, a value of -1 is returned and errno is	set to
     indicate the error.
