PTHREAD_SETSCHEDPRIO(3)    Linux Programmer's Manual   PTHREAD_SETSCHEDPRIO(3)



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(3).

VERSIONS
       This function is available in glibc since version 2.3.4.
