.TH PTHREAD_ATTR_SETSCHEDPARAM 3 2012-03-15 "Linux" "Linux Programmer's Manual"
.SH NAME
pthread_attr_setschedparam, pthread_attr_getschedparam \- set/get
scheduling parameter attributes in thread attributes object
.SH SYNOPSIS
.nf
.B #include <pthread.h>
.BI "int pthread_attr_setschedparam(pthread_attr_t *" attr ,
.BI " const struct sched_param *" param );
.BI "int pthread_attr_getschedparam(pthread_attr_t *" attr ,
.BI " struct sched_param *" param );
.sp
Compile and link with \fI\-pthread\fP.
.fi
.SH DESCRIPTION
The
.BR pthread_attr_setschedparam ()
function sets the scheduling parameter attributes of the
thread attributes object referred to by
.IR attr
to the values specified in the buffer pointed to by
.IR param .
These attributes determine the scheduling parameters of
a thread created using the thread attributes object
.IR attr .
The
.BR pthread_attr_getschedparam ()
returns the scheduling parameter attributes of the thread attributes object
.IR attr
in the buffer pointed to by
.IR param .
Scheduling parameters are maintained in the following structure:
.in +4n
.nf
struct sched_param {
int sched_priority; /* Scheduling priority */
};
.fi
.in
As can be seen, only one scheduling parameter is supported.
For details of the permitted ranges for scheduling priorities
in each scheduling policy, see
.BR sched_setscheduler (2).
.SH RETURN VALUE
On success, these functions return 0;
on error, they return a nonzero error number.
.SH ERRORS
POSIX.1 documents
.B EINVAL
and
.B ENOTSUP
errors for
.BR pthread_attr_setschedparam ().
On Linux these functions always succeed
(but portable and future-proof applications should nevertheless
handle a possible error return).
.\" .SH VERSIONS
.\" Available since glibc 2.0.
.SH CONFORMING TO
POSIX.1-2001.
.SH NOTES
See
.BR pthread_attr_setschedpolicy (3)
for a list of the thread scheduling policies supported on Linux.
.SH EXAMPLE
See
.BR pthread_setschedparam (3).
