The printable version is no longer supported and may have rendering errors. Please update your browser bookmarks and please use the default browser print function instead.

The time namespace support has been merged in the 5.6 kernel. The current implementation allows setting per-namespace offsets to the system monotonic and boot-time clocks.

The time namespace support in CRIU has been merged in the 3.14 release.


Maybe later

  • Make start-time remain "unchanged" after C/R
  • arm64/arm32/s390/power64 - add archs vvar support (nit: big/little-endianess for timespec::nsec)
  • REALTIME-related:
    • REALTIME offsets
    • vvar offsets will need synchronization (like gtod_read_begin()/gtod_read_retry())
    • vfs modification/creation time should work
    • starttime in /proc/pid/stat
    • btime in /proc/stat
    • utime()/utimes()/futimesat() (with times == NULL)
    • utimensat()/futimens() - with UTIME_NOW
    • mq_timedsend()/mq_timedreceive()
    • semtimedop()
  • Adjtime (too complicated for PoC)
  • Cpu time for thread/pid/pgid (times())
  • /proc/stat ticks? (top uses them e.g.)
  • pid creation time (probably different unrelated API)
  • clock_tai - if we care about isolation from host's time
  • What about other kinds of counters like perf events and trace events?
