PTHREAD_SETSCHEDPARAM(3) Library Functions Manual PTHREAD_SETSCHEDPARAM(3)

NAME

pthread_setschedparam, pthread_getschedparamthread scheduling parameter manipulation

SYNOPSIS

#include <pthread.h>
int
pthread_setschedparam(pthread_t thread, int policy, const struct sched_param *param);
int
pthread_getschedparam(pthread_t thread, int *policy, struct sched_param *param);

DESCRIPTION

The pthread_setschedparam() and pthread_getschedparam() functions set and get the scheduling parameters of individual threads. The scheduling policy for a thread can either be SCHED_FIFO (first in, first out) or SCHED_RR (round-robin). The thread priority (accessed via param->sched_priority) must be within the range returned by the sched_get_priority_min() and sched_get_priority_max() functions.

RETURN VALUES

If successful, these functions return 0. Otherwise, an error number is returned to indicate the error.

ERRORS

pthread_setschedparam() will fail if:
 
 
[EINVAL]
Invalid value for policy.
 
 
[ENOTSUP]
Invalid value for scheduling parameters.
 
 
[ESRCH]
Non-existent thread thread.
pthread_getschedparam() will fail if:
 
 
[ESRCH]
Non-existent thread thread.
