PTHREAD_ATTR_GETINHERITSCHEPOSIX Programmer's MPTHREAD_ATTR_GETINHERITSCHED(P)
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_getinheritsched, pthread_attr_setinheritsched - get and
set the inheritsched attribute (REALTIME THREADS)
int pthread_attr_getinheritsched(const pthread_attr_t *restrict attr,
int *restrict inheritsched);
int pthread_attr_setinheritsched(pthread_attr_t *attr,
The pthread_attr_getinheritsched(), and pthread_attr_setinheritsched()
functions, respectively, shall get and set the inheritsched attribute
in the attr argument.
When the attributes objects are used by pthread_create(), the inher-
itsched attribute determines how the other scheduling attributes of the
created thread shall be set.
Specifies that the thread scheduling attributes shall be inher-
ited from the creating thread, and the scheduling attributes in
this attr argument shall be ignored.
Specifies that the thread scheduling attributes shall be set to
the corresponding values from this attributes object.
The symbols PTHREAD_INHERIT_SCHED and PTHREAD_EXPLICIT_SCHED are
defined in the <pthread.h> header.
The following thread scheduling attributes defined by
IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 are affected by the inheritsched attribute:
scheduling policy ( schedpolicy), scheduling parameters ( schedparam),
and scheduling contention scope ( contentionscope).
If successful, the pthread_attr_getinheritsched() and pthread_attr_set-
inheritsched() functions shall return zero; otherwise, an error number
shall be returned to indicate the error.
The pthread_attr_setinheritsched() function may fail if:
EINVAL The value of inheritsched 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.
