This manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual. The Linux
implementation of this interface may differ (consult the corresponding
Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior), or the interface may
not be implemented on Linux.
pthread_attr_getschedpolicy, pthread_attr_setschedpolicy - get and set
the schedpolicy attribute (REALTIME THREADS)
int pthread_attr_getschedpolicy(const pthread_attr_t *restrict attr,
int *restrict policy);
int pthread_attr_setschedpolicy(pthread_attr_t *attr, int policy);
The pthread_attr_getschedpolicy() and pthread_attr_setschedpolicy()
functions, respectively, shall get and set the schedpolicy attribute in
the attr argument.
The supported values of policy shall include SCHED_FIFO, SCHED_RR, and
SCHED_OTHER, which are defined in the <sched.h> header. When threads
executing with the scheduling policy SCHED_FIFO, SCHED_RR, or
SCHED_SPORADIC are waiting on a mutex, they shall acquire the mutex in
priority order when the mutex is unlocked.
If successful, the pthread_attr_getschedpolicy() and
pthread_attr_setschedpolicy() functions shall return zero; otherwise,
an error number shall be returned to indicate the error.
The pthread_attr_setschedpolicy() function may fail if:
EINVAL The value of policy is not valid.
An attempt was made to set the attribute to an unsupported
These functions shall not return an error code of [EINTR].
The following sections are informative.
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.
