      Description

      On different hardware and under different virtualization environments, the latency of reading the system clock can fluctuate by over 1000x. When the clock may be read with extremely low latency, we would like to leverage it to provide very precise current time inside the server. When the system clock is of higher latency, we would like to emulate a low-resolution clock that can be read very quickly, so that time calls on such systems do not interfere with the execution of actual user operations.
