Solaris Express Developer Edition What's New

SO_TIMESTAMP Socket Option

This networking enhancement is new in the Solaris Express 5/06 release.

The SO_TIMESTAMP option enables or disables the reception of a timestamp with datagram. If the SO_TIMESTAMP option is enabled on a SOCK_DGRAM or SOCK_RAW socket, the recvmsg(2) call returns a timestamp in the native data format, corresponding to when the datagram was received.
