NAME

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

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.

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

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().

ATTRIBUTES

For an explanation of the terms used in this section, see attributes(7).
