PTHREAD_ATTR_GETINHERITSCHED(3P)Programmer'sPManual_ATTR_GETINHERITSCHED(3P)

PROLOG         top

       This manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual.  The Linux
       implementation of this interface may differ (consult the
       corresponding Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior), or
       the interface may not be implemented on Linux.

NAME         top

       pthread_attr_getinheritsched, pthread_attr_setinheritsched — get and
       set the inheritsched attribute (REALTIME THREADS)

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <pthread.h>

       int pthread_attr_getinheritsched(const pthread_attr_t *restrict attr,
           int *restrict inheritsched);
       int pthread_attr_setinheritsched(pthread_attr_t *attr,
           int inheritsched);

DESCRIPTION         top

       The pthread_attr_getinheritsched() and pthread_attr_setinheritsched()
       functions, respectively, shall get and set the inheritsched attribute
       in the attr argument.

       When the attributes objects are used by pthread_create(), the
       inheritsched attribute determines how the other scheduling attributes
       of the created thread shall be set.

       The supported values of inheritsched shall be:

       PTHREAD_INHERIT_SCHED
             Specifies that the thread scheduling attributes shall be
             inherited from the creating thread, and the scheduling
             attributes in this attr argument shall be ignored.

       PTHREAD_EXPLICIT_SCHED
             Specifies that the thread scheduling attributes shall be set to
             the corresponding values from this attributes object.

       The symbols PTHREAD_INHERIT_SCHED and PTHREAD_EXPLICIT_SCHED are
       defined in the <pthread.h> header.

       The following thread scheduling attributes defined by POSIX.1‐2008
       are affected by the inheritsched attribute: scheduling policy
       (schedpolicy), scheduling parameters (schedparam), and scheduling
       contention scope (contentionscope).

       The behavior is undefined if the value specified by the attr argument
       to pthread_attr_getinheritsched() or pthread_attr_setinheritsched()
       does not refer to an initialized thread attributes object.

RETURN VALUE         top

       If successful, the pthread_attr_getinheritsched() and
       pthread_attr_setinheritsched() functions shall return zero;
       otherwise, an error number shall be returned to indicate the error.

ERRORS         top

       The pthread_attr_setinheritsched() function shall fail if:

       ENOTSUP
              An attempt was made to set the attribute to an unsupported
              value.

       The pthread_attr_setinheritsched() function may fail if:

       EINVAL The value of inheritsched is not valid.

       These functions shall not return an error code of [EINTR].

       The following sections are informative.

EXAMPLES         top

       None.

APPLICATION USAGE         top

       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 Section 2.9.4, Thread Scheduling for further details on thread
       scheduling attributes and their default settings.

RATIONALE         top

       If an implementation detects that the value specified by the attr
       argument to pthread_attr_getinheritsched() or
       pthread_attr_setinheritsched() does not refer to an initialized
       thread attributes object, it is recommended that the function should
       fail and report an [EINVAL] error.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS         top

       None.
