Timing Methods in C++ Under Linux

Measuring the execution time for code sections can be done in multiple ways in C++. Except for the time resolution issue, different timing methods worked relatively the same in single processor environment. As multi-core processors become more prevalent however, we need to be careful at choosing the correct timing mechanism as not all such routines measure the wall time elapsed.
