NAME

pthread_attr_getschedparam, pthread_attr_setschedparam - get and set the schedparam attribute

SYNOPSIS

#include <pthread.h>

int pthread_attr_getschedparam(const pthread_attr_t *restrict attr,
struct sched_param *restrict
param);
int pthread_attr_setschedparam(pthread_attr_t *restrict
attr,
const struct sched_param *restrict
param);

DESCRIPTION

The pthread_attr_getschedparam(), and pthread_attr_setschedparam() functions, respectively, shall get and set the scheduling parameter attributes in the attr argument. The contents of the param structure are defined in the <sched.h> header. For the SCHED_FIFO and SCHED_RR policies, the only required member of param is sched_priority.

For the SCHED_SPORADIC policy, the required members of the param structure are sched_priority, sched_ss_low_priority, sched_ss_repl_period, sched_ss_init_budget, and sched_ss_max_repl. The specified sched_ss_repl_period must be greater than or equal to the specified sched_ss_init_budget for the function to succeed; if it is not, then the function shall fail. The value of sched_ss_max_repl shall be within the inclusive range [1, {SS_REPL_MAX}] for the function to succeed; if not, the function shall fail.

RETURN VALUE

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

ERRORS

The pthread_attr_setschedparam() function may fail if:
EINVAL The value of param is not valid.
ENOTSUP An attempt was made to set the attribute to an unsupported value.

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

The following sections are informative.

EXAMPLES

None.

APPLICATION 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.

RATIONALE

None.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS

None.
