NAME
pthread_setschedparam, pthread_getschedparam - control thread scheduling parameters SYNOPSIS
#include <pthread.h> int pthread_setschedparam(pthread_t target_thread, int policy, const struct sched_param *param); int pthread_getschedparam(pthread_t target_thread, int *policy, struct sched_param *param); DESCRIPTION
pthread_setschedparam sets the scheduling parameters for the thread target_thread as indicated by policy and param. policy can be either SCHED_OTHER (regular, non-realtime scheduling), SCHED_RR (realtime, round-robin) or SCHED_FIFO (realtime, first-in first-out). param spec- ifies the scheduling priority for the two realtime policies. See sched_setpolicy(2) for more information on scheduling policies. The realtime scheduling policies SCHED_RR and SCHED_FIFO are available only to processes with superuser privileges. pthread_getschedparam retrieves the scheduling policy and scheduling parameters for the thread target_thread and store them in the loca- tions pointed to by policy and param, respectively. RETURN VALUE
pthread_setschedparam and pthread_getschedparam return 0 on success and a non-zero error code on error. ERRORS
On error, pthread_setschedparam returns the following error codes: EINVAL policy is not one of SCHED_OTHER, SCHED_RR, SCHED_FIFO EINVAL the priority value specified by param is not valid for the specified policy EPERM the calling process does not have superuser permissions ESRCH the target_thread is invalid or has already terminated EFAULT param points outside the process memory space On error, pthread_getschedparam returns the following error codes: ESRCH the target_thread is invalid or has already terminated EFAULT policy or param point outside the process memory space AUTHOR
