This module provides a monotonic() function which returns the value (in fractional seconds) of a clock which never goes backwards. It is compatible with Python 2 and Python 3.

On Python 3.3 or newer, monotonic will be an alias of time.monotonic from the standard library. On older versions, it will fall back to an equivalent implementation:

OS Implementation
Linux, *BSD clock_gettime
Windows GetTickCount or GetTickCount64
OS X mach_absolute_time

If no suitable implementation exists for the current platform, attempting to import this module (or to import from it) will cause a RuntimeError exception to be raised.

monotonic is available via the Python Cheese Shop (PyPI):
