Question Definition of local time

Dear Geant4 users

Hello,
I have a small and stupid question about the definition of local time.

So, local time is 'time since the track was created'.

For example,
A photon is generated by a primary particle and it is detected after travels 3 m.(and it takes ~ 10 ns in the real world.)

Then this local time means  1. The time that photon takes to be detected?(I mean, the time that it takes from the generation to the detection. in this case, ~ 10 ns) 
or 2. it is a time that CPU takes to simulate from the generation of the photon to the detection?

I think 1. is right, but I want to be sure.

Am I right?


And... could you allow me one more question?
Is there any problem that I get this value in the following way?
step->GetTrack()->GetLocalTime()



Thank you in advance.

Best regards,
J.E. Suh
