PTHREAD_ATTR_SETSCHEDPOLICY(3)x Programmer's ManualAD_ATTR_SETSCHEDPOLICY(3)

NAME         top

       pthread_attr_setschedpolicy,  pthread_attr_getschedpolicy  -  set/get
       scheduling policy attribute in thread attributes object

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <pthread.h>

       int pthread_attr_setschedpolicy(pthread_attr_t *attr, int policy);
       int pthread_attr_getschedpolicy(const pthread_attr_t *attr, int *policy);

       Compile and link with -pthread.

DESCRIPTION         top

       The pthread_attr_setschedpolicy() function sets the scheduling policy
       attribute of the thread attributes object referred to by attr to the
       value specified in policy.  This attribute determines the scheduling
       policy of a thread created using the thread attributes object attr.

       The supported values for policy are SCHED_FIFO, SCHED_RR, and
       SCHED_OTHER, with the semantics described in sched(7).

       The pthread_attr_getschedpolicy() returns the scheduling policy
       attribute of the thread attributes object attr in the buffer pointed
       to by policy.

       In order for the policy setting made by pthread_attr_setschedpolicy()
       to have effect when calling pthread_create(3), the caller must use
       pthread_attr_setinheritsched(3) to set the inherit-scheduler
       attribute of the attributes object attr to PTHREAD_EXPLICIT_SCHED.

RETURN VALUE         top

       On success, these functions return 0; on error, they return a nonzero
       error number.

ERRORS         top

       pthread_attr_setschedpolicy() can fail with the following error:

       EINVAL Invalid value in policy.

       POSIX.1 also documents an optional ENOTSUP error ("attempt was made
       to set the attribute to an unsupported value") for
       pthread_attr_setschedpolicy().
