SYNOPSIS


#include <pthread.h> 

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

Compile and link with -pthread.

DESCRIPTION

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_setscheduler(2).

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

RETURN VALUE

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

ERRORS

pthread_attr_setschedpolicy() can fail with the following error:
EINVAL Invalid value in policy.
POSIX.1-2001 also documents an optional ENOTSUP error ("attempt was made to set the attribute to an unsupported value") for pthread_attr_setschedpolicy().

CONFORMING TO

POSIX.1-2001.

EXAMPLE

See pthread_setschedparam(3).
