+                gets the realtime (wallclock) timestamp of the the
+                current journal entry.  It takes two arguments: the
+                journal context object and a pointer to a 64 Bit
+                unsigned integer to store the timestamp in. The
+                timestamp is in microseconds since the epoch,
+                i.e. CLOCK_REALTIME.</para>
+
+                <para><function>sd_journal_get_realtime_usec()</function>
+                gets the monotonic timestamp of the the current
+                journal entry.  It takes three arguments: the journal
+                context object, a pointer to a 64 Bit unsigned integer
+                to store the timestamp in as well as a 128 Bit ID
+                buffer to store the boot ID of the monotonic timestamp
+                in. The timestamp is in microseconds since boot-up of
+                the specific boot, i.e. CLOCK_MONOTONIC. Since the
+                monotonic clock begins new with every reboot it only
+                defines a well-defined point in time when used
+                together with a identifier identifying the boot, see
+                <citerefentry><refentrytitle>sd_id128_get_boot</refentrytitle><manvolnum>3</manvolnum></citerefentry>
+                for more information. If the boot ID parameter is
+                passed NULL the function will fail if the monotonic
+                timestamp of the current entry is not of the current
+                system boot.</para>
