Defined in header <chrono>
class steady_clock;
(since C++11)

Class std::chrono::steady_clock represents a monotonic clock. The time points of this clock cannot decrease as physical time moves forward. This clock is not related to wall clock time, and is best suitable for measuring intervals.

std::chrono::steady_clock meets the requirements of TrivialClock.
