omp_get_wtime 

Returns a value in seconds of the time elapsed from some point.


double omp_get_wtime( );

Returns a value in seconds of the time elapsed from some arbitrary, but consistent point.

That point will remain consistent during program execution, making subsequent comparisons possible.

For more information, see 3.3.1 omp_get_wtime Function.

// omp_get_wtime.cpp
// compile with: /openmp
#include "omp.h"
#include <stdio.h>
#include <windows.h>

int main() {
    double start = omp_get_wtime( );
    Sleep(1000);
    double end = omp_get_wtime( );
    double wtick = omp_get_wtick( );

    printf_s("start = %.16g\nend = %.16g\ndiff = %.16g\n",
             start, end, end - start);

    printf_s("wtick = %.16g\n1/wtick = %.16g\n",
             wtick, 1.0 / wtick);
}
