All I am sure of about SO_TIMESTAMP, is that it is not defined in /usr/include/sys/socket.h on AIX - and so I cannot package applications that require it?
I am curious about the history - because it is is POSIX based, AIX should have already have it. If it's history is "coming from Linux" - it probably should have it anyway (the L from way back when with AIX 5L).
But to open the discussion with IBM I would like some help - your site seems the most knowledgeable ( a search of wiki SO_TIMESTAMP did not show me the history I was hoping to find).
Wonderful site - only glanced at the FAQ - which I save into my PocketList for later reading.
I'm pretty sure SO_TIMESTAMP is a Linux-specific sockopt, not something standard... So, you probably can't count on it existing on most non-Linux systems... I'm not sure why you think it's a POSIX standard, but nothing I can find says it is... This seems to be the list of recognized POSIX SOL_SOCKET sockopts... I'm not sure what an acceptable substitute on AIX would be, as I'm not familiar with AIX personally...
I see I must be clearer - as I feared it was not POSIX. - was thinking, but did not type "if it is POSIX"
Unfortunately - for me, read a "packaging" I am trying to do, is that, atm, no SO_SOCKET seems to be a show-stopper for openntpd-6.0p1 to AIX. I needed someone "more informed" than I - to give that feedback to the openntpd project team.
Thanks again for your clear answer.
Should you ever have a question on AIX - do not hesitate to ask!
