A free-running clock that raises an interrupt at regular intervals, often associated with the period of the incoming supply of electricity. These interrupts allow the supervisory system to track the passage of real time, and also guarantee that if a process does not call the supervisor explicitly, the supervisor will nevertheless be entered.
