  # Python | time.monotonic () method `time.monotonic() ` The time unit in Python is used to get the value of a monotonic clock. Monotonous clock — it is a clock that cannot move backward.
Since there is no checkpoint for the return value of monotonic hours, only the difference between the results of successive calls is allowed.

Syntax: time.monotonic ()

Parameter: No parameter is required.

Return type: This method returns a float value which represents the value of a monotonic clock in fractional seconds.

Code # 1: Using the `time.monotonic() method ` to get the monotonic clock value

 ` # Python program to explain the time.monotonic () method `   ` # time module import ` ` import ` ` time `   ` # Get the value ` ` # monotonous hours using ` ` # time.monotonic () method ` ` value ` ` = ` ` time.monotonic () `   ` # output the value ` ` # monotonous hours ` ` print ` ` ( ` ` "Value of the monotonic clock (in fractional seconds):" ` `, value) `

Exit:
