pthread_attr_getschedpolicy, pthread_attr_setschedpolicy - get and set the schedpolicy attribute (REALTIME THREADS) SYNOPSIS
#include <pthread.h> int pthread_attr_getschedpolicy(const pthread_attr_t *restrict attr, int *restrict policy); int pthread_attr_setschedpolicy(pthread_attr_t *attr, int policy); DESCRIPTION
The pthread_attr_getschedpolicy() and pthread_attr_setschedpolicy() functions, respectively, shall get and set the schedpolicy attribute in the attr argument. The supported values of policy shall include SCHED_FIFO, SCHED_RR, and SCHED_OTHER, which are defined in the <sched.h> header. When threads executing with the scheduling policy SCHED_FIFO, SCHED_RR, or SCHED_SPORADIC are waiting on a mutex, they shall acquire the mutex in priority order when the mutex is unlocked. RETURN VALUE
If successful, the pthread_attr_getschedpolicy() and pthread_attr_setschedpolicy() functions shall return zero; otherwise, an error number shall be returned to indicate the error. ERRORS
The pthread_attr_setschedpolicy() function may fail if: EINVAL The value of policy is not valid. ENOTSUP An attempt was made to set the attribute to an unsupported value. These functions shall not return an error code of [EINTR]. The following sections are informative. EXAMPLES
None. APPLICATION USAGE
After these attributes have been set, a thread can be created with the specified attributes using pthread_create(). Using these routines does not affect the current running thread. RATIONALE
None. FUTURE DIRECTIONS
None. SEE ALSO

pthread_attr_getinheritsched, pthread_attr_setinheritsched - get and set the inheritsched attribute (REALTIME THREADS) SYNOPSIS
#include <pthread.h> int pthread_attr_getinheritsched(const pthread_attr_t *restrict attr, int *restrict inheritsched); int pthread_attr_setinheritsched(pthread_attr_t *attr, int inheritsched); DESCRIPTION
The pthread_attr_getinheritsched(), and pthread_attr_setinheritsched() functions, respectively, shall get and set the inheritsched attribute in the attr argument. When the attributes objects are used by pthread_create(), the inheritsched attribute determines how the other scheduling attributes of the created thread shall be set. PTHREAD_INHERIT_SCHED Specifies that the thread scheduling attributes shall be inherited from the creating thread, and the scheduling attributes in this attr argument shall be ignored. PTHREAD_EXPLICIT_SCHED Specifies that the thread scheduling attributes shall be set to the corresponding values from this attributes object. The symbols PTHREAD_INHERIT_SCHED and PTHREAD_EXPLICIT_SCHED are defined in the <pthread.h> header. The following thread scheduling attributes defined by IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 are affected by the inheritsched attribute: scheduling policy ( schedpolicy), scheduling parameters ( schedparam), and scheduling contention scope ( contentionscope). RETURN VALUE
If successful, the pthread_attr_getinheritsched() and pthread_attr_setinheritsched() functions shall return zero; otherwise, an error num- ber shall be returned to indicate the error. ERRORS
The pthread_attr_setinheritsched() function may fail if: EINVAL The value of inheritsched is not valid. ENOTSUP An attempt was made to set the attribute to an unsupported value. These functions shall not return an error code of [EINTR]. The following sections are informative. EXAMPLES
None. APPLICATION USAGE
After these attributes have been set, a thread can be created with the specified attributes using pthread_create(). Using these routines does not affect the current running thread. RATIONALE
