SCHED_GET_PRIORITY_MAX(2)	    Linux Programmer's Manual		SCHED_GET_PRIORITY_MAX(2)

       sched_get_priority_max, sched_get_priority_min  - get static priority range

       #include <sched.h>

       int sched_get_priority_max(int policy);

       int sched_get_priority_min(int policy);

       sched_get_priority_max()  returns  the  maximum	priority  value that can be used with the
       scheduling algorithm identified by policy.  sched_get_priority_min() returns  the  minimum
       priority  value that can be used with the scheduling algorithm identified by policy.  Sup-
       ported policy values are SCHED_FIFO, SCHED_RR, SCHED_OTHER, SCHED_BATCH,  and  SCHED_IDLE.
       Further details about these policies can be found in sched_setscheduler(2).

       Processes  with	numerically  higher  priority  values are scheduled before processes with
       numerically lower priority values.  Thus, the value returned  by  sched_get_priority_max()
       will be greater than the value returned by sched_get_priority_min().

       Linux  allows  the static priority value range 1 to 99 for SCHED_FIFO and SCHED_RR and the
       priority 0 for SCHED_OTHER, SCHED_BATCH, and SCHED_IDLE.  Scheduling priority  ranges  for
       the various policies are not alterable.

       The range of scheduling priorities may vary on other POSIX systems, thus it is a good idea
       for portable applications to use a virtual priority range and map it to the interval given
       by  sched_get_priority_max() and sched_get_priority_min().  POSIX.1-2001 requires a spread
       of at least 32 between the maximum and the minimum values for SCHED_FIFO and SCHED_RR.

       POSIX systems on which sched_get_priority_max() and sched_get_priority_min() are available
       define _POSIX_PRIORITY_SCHEDULING in <unistd.h>.

       On success, sched_get_priority_max() and sched_get_priority_min() return the maximum/mini-
       mum priority value for the named scheduling policy.  On error, -1 is returned,  and  errno
       is set appropriately.

       EINVAL The argument policy does not identify a defined scheduling policy.
