NAME
pthread_attr_getscope, pthread_attr_setscope - get or set contentionscope attribute SYNOPSIS
cc -mt [ flag... ] file... -lpthread [ library... ] #include <pthread.h> int pthread_attr_getscope(const pthread_attr_t *restrict attr, int *restrict contentionscope); int pthread_attr_setscope(pthread_attr_t *attr, int contentionscope); The pthread_attr_setscope() and pthread_attr_getscope() functions are used to set and get the contentionscope attribute in the attr object. The contentionscope attribute can have the value PTHREAD_SCOPE_SYSTEM, signifying system scheduling contention scope, or PTHREAD_SCOPE_PROCESS, signifying process scheduling contention scope. The symbols PTHREAD_SCOPE_SYSTEM and PTHREAD_SCOPE_PROCESS are defined by the header <pthread.h>. If successful, the pthread_attr_setscope() and pthread_attr_getscope() functions return 0. Otherwise, an error number is returned to indi- cate the error. The pthread_attr_setscope(), or pthread_attr_getscope(), function may fail if: EINVAL attr or contentionscope is invalid. 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. See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes: +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ | ATTRIBUTE TYPE | ATTRIBUTE VALUE | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ |Interface Stability |Standard | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ |MT-Level |MT-Safe | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ pthread_attr_init(3C), pthread_attr_setinheritsched(3C), pthread_attr_setschedpolicy(3C), pthread_attr_setschedparam(3C), pthread_cre- ate(3C), pthread_setschedparam(3C), attributes(5), standards(5) 23 Mar 2005 pthread_attr_getscope(3C)
