             Summary: Audit for durations that should be measured via Time.monotonicNow
                 Key: HADOOP-14713
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-14713
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Jason Lowe


Whenever we are measuring a time delta or duration in the same process, the timestamps probably
should be using Time.monotonicNow rather than Time.now or System.currentTimeMillis.  The latter
two are directly reading the system clock which can move faster or slower than actual time
if the system is undergoing a time adjustment (e.g.: adjtime or admin sets a new system time).

We should go through the code base and identify places where the code is using the system
clock but really should be using monotonic time.
