sched_getscheduler()

Get the current scheduling policy for a process

Synopsis:

#include <sched.h>

int sched_getscheduler( pid_t pid );

Since:

BlackBerry 10.0.0

Arguments:

pid
The ID of the process whose scheduling policy you want to find, or zero if you want to get the policy for the current process.

Library:

libc

Use the -l c option to qcc to link against this library. This library is usually included automatically.

Description:

The sched_getscheduler() function gets the current scheduling policy of process pid. If pid is zero, the scheduling policy of the calling process is returned.

Returns:

The scheduling policy, or -1 if an error occurred ( errno is set).

Errors:

ESRCH
The process pid doesn't exist.

Classification:

POSIX 1003.1 PS

Safety:  
Cancellation point No
Interrupt handler No
Signal handler Yes
Thread Yes

Caveats:

In a multithreaded program, sched_getscheduler() returns the scheduling policy for thread 1 in the process pid, or for the calling thread if pid is 0.
