PTHREAD_SCHEDPARAM(3)    BSD Library Functions Manual    PTHREAD_SCHEDPARAM(3)


NAME

     pthread_setschedparam, pthread_getschedparam -- thread scheduling parame-
     ter 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 pol-
     icy for a thread can either be SCHED_FIFO (first in, first out), SCHED_RR
     (round-robin), or SCHED_OTHER (timesharing).  Valid thread priorities
     (accessed via param->sched_priority) must be within the range returned by
     the sched_get_priority_min(2) and sched_get_priority_max(2) system calls.


RETURN VALUES

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


ERRORS

     The pthread_setschedparam() function will fail if:

     [EINVAL]           Invalid value for policy.

     [ENOTSUP]          Invalid value for scheduling parameters.

     [ESRCH]            Non-existent thread thread.

     The pthread_getschedparam() function will fail if:

     [ESRCH]            Non-existent thread thread.


SEE ALSO

STANDARDS

     The pthread_setschedparam() and pthread_getschedparam() functions conform
     to Version 2 of the Single UNIX Specification (``SUSv2'').
