NAME

pthread_setschedprio - set scheduling priority of a thread  

SYNOPSIS

#include <pthread.h>

pthread_setschedprio(pthread_t thread, int prio);

Compile and link with -pthread.
 

DESCRIPTION

The pthread_setschedprio() function sets the scheduling priority of the thread thread to the value specified in prio. (By contrast pthread_setschedparam(3) changes both the scheduling policy and priority of a thread.)  

RETURN VALUE

On success, this function returns 0; on error, it returns a nonzero error number. If pthread_setschedprio() fails, the scheduling priority of thread is not changed.  

ERRORS

EINVAL
prio is not valid for the scheduling policy of the specified thread.
EPERM
The caller does not have appropriate privileges to set the specified priority.
ESRCH
No thread with the ID thread could be found.

POSIX.1-2001 also documents an ENOTSUP ("attempt was made to set the priority to an unsupported value") error for pthread_setschedparam().  

VERSIONS

This function is available in glibc since version 2.3.4.  

CONFORMING TO

POSIX.1-2001.  

NOTES

For a description of the permissions required to, and the effect of, changing a thread's scheduling priority, and details of the permitted ranges for priorities in each scheduling policy, see sched_setscheduler(2).
