Time would indicate that there is a concept of a sample rate, which
isn't always true and not every block is told what the sample rate is,
anyways, even if the items are clocked. However, the next branch does
now keep track of the number of items read and written for each
input/output of each block. You can get these by calling the
nitems_read and nitems_written. It returns a 64-bit number of the item
count since the start of the flow graph.
