typedef struct nng_stat nng_stat;

uint64_t nng_stat_timestamp(nng_stat *stat);


The nng_stat_timestamp() function returns the a timestamp, which is measured as a number of milliseconds since some arbitrary value in the past.

Even within the same snapshot, statistics might have different timestamp values, as the timestamp represents the time when that particular statistic was captured.

These values are intended to facilitate calculation of rates, by comparing values from one snapshot with a subsequent one.
The values used here have the same offset as the nng_clock() supplemental function. This can be useful when converting these values to local clock time.


The timestamp when stat was captured, measured as a number of milliseconds since some time in the past.
