SCHED(3)			   BSD Library Functions Manual 			 SCHED(3)

NAME
     sched_setparam, sched_getparam, sched_setscheduler, sched_getscheduler,
     sched_get_priority_max, sched_get_priority_min, sched_rr_get_interval, sched_yield --
     process scheduling

LIBRARY
     POSIX Real-time Library (librt, -lrt)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <sched.h>

     int
     sched_setparam(pid_t pid, const struct sched_param *param);

     int
     sched_getparam(pid_t pid, struct sched_param *param);

     int
     sched_setscheduler(pid_t pid, int policy, const struct sched_param *param);

     int
     sched_getscheduler(pid_t pid);

     int
     sched_get_priority_max(int policy);

     int
     sched_get_priority_min(int policy);

     int
     sched_rr_get_interval(pid_t pid, struct timespec *interval);

     int
     sched_yield(void);

DESCRIPTION
     This section describes the functions used to get scheduling information about processes, and
     control the scheduling of processes.

     Available scheduling policies (classes) are:

     SCHED_OTHER  Time-sharing (TS) scheduling policy.	The default policy in NetBSD.

     SCHED_FIFO   First in, first out (FIFO) scheduling policy.

     SCHED_RR	  Round robin scheduling policy.

     The struct sched_param contains at least one member:

     sched_priority
	    Specifies the priority of the process.

FUNCTIONS
     sched_setparam(pid, param)
	      Sets the scheduling parameters for the process specified by pid to param.  If the
	      value of pid is equal to zero, then the calling process is used.

     sched_getparam(pid, param)
	      Gets the scheduling parameters of the process specified by pid into the structure
	      param.  If the value of pid is equal to zero, then the calling process is used.

     sched_setscheduler(pid, policy, param)
	      Set the scheduling policy and parameters for the process specified by pid.  If the
	      value of pid is equal to zero, then the calling process is used.

     sched_getscheduler(pid)
	      Returns the scheduling policy of the process specified by pid.  If the value of pid
	      is equal to zero, then the calling process is used.

     sched_get_priority_max(policy)
	      Returns the maximal priority which may be used for the scheduling policy specified
	      by policy.

     sched_get_priority_min(policy)
	      Returns the minimal priority which may be used for the scheduling policy specified
	      by policy.

     sched_rr_get_interval(pid, interval)
	      Returns the time quantum into the structure interval of the process specified by
	      pid.  If the value of pid is equal to zero, then the calling process is used.  The
	      process must be running at SCHED_RR scheduling policy.

     sched_yield()
	      Yields a processor voluntarily and gives other threads a chance to run without
	      waiting for an involuntary preemptive switch.

     sched_setaffinity_np(pid, size, cpuset)
	      Set the affinity mask specified by cpuset for the process specified by pid.  At
	      least one valid CPU must be set in the mask.

     sched_getaffinity_np(pid, size, cpuset)
	      Get the affinity mask of the process specified by pid into the cpuset.

IMPLEMENTATION NOTES
     Setting CPU affinity(3) requires super-user privileges.  Ordinary users can be allowed to
     control CPU affinity of their threads via the
     security.models.extensions.user_set_cpu_affinity sysctl(7).  See secmodel_extensions(9).

     Portable applications should not use the sched_setaffinity_np() and sched_getaffinity_np()
     functions.

RETURN VALUES
     sched_setparam(), sched_getparam(), sched_rr_get_interval(), and sched_yield() return 0 on
     success.  Otherwise, -1 is returned and errno is set to indicate the error.

     sched_setscheduler() returns the previously used scheduling policy on success.  Otherwise,
     -1 is returned and errno is set to indicate the error.

     sched_getscheduler() returns the scheduling policy on success.  Otherwise, -1 is returned
     and errno is set to indicate the error.

     sched_get_priority_max() and sched_get_priority_min() return the maximal/minimal priority
     value on success.	Otherwise, -1 is returned and errno is set to indicate the error.

     sched_setaffinity_np() and sched_getaffinity_np() return 0 on success.  Otherwise, -1 is
     returned and errno is set to indicate the error.

ERRORS
     The sched_setparam() and sched_setscheduler() functions fail if:

     [EINVAL]		At least one of the specified scheduling parameters was invalid.

     [EPERM]		The calling process has no appropriate privileges to perform the opera-
			tion.

     [ESRCH]		No process can be found corresponding to the PID specified by pid, and
			the value of pid is not zero.

     The sched_getparam() and sched_getscheduler() functions fail if:

     [EPERM]		The calling process is not a super-user and its effective user id does
			not match the effective user-id of the specified process.

     [ESRCH]		No process can be found corresponding to that specified by pid, and the
			value of pid is not zero.

     The sched_get_priority_max() and sched_get_priority_min() functions fail if:

     [EINVAL]		The specified scheduling policy is invalid.

     The sched_rr_get_interval() function fails if:

     [ESRCH]		No process can be found corresponding to that specified by pid, and the
			value of pid is not zero.

STANDARDS
     These functions, except sched_setaffinity_np() and sched_getaffinity_np(), are expected to
     conform the IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 (``POSIX.1'') standard.

HISTORY
     The scheduling functions appeared in NetBSD 5.0.
