chrt

       chrt [options] priority command [argument...]
       chrt [options] -p [priority] pid

DESCRIPTION
       chrt sets or retrieves the real-time scheduling attributes of an exist-
       ing pid, or runs command with the given attributes.   Both  the  policy
       (one  of SCHED_OTHER, SCHED_FIFO, SCHED_RR, SCHED_BATCH, or SCHED_IDLE)
       and the priority can be set and retrieved.

       The SCHED_BATCH policy is supported since Linux 2.6.16.  The SCHED_IDLE
       policy is supported since Linux 2.6.23.

       The  SCHED_RESET_ON_FORK  flag  for policies SCHED_RR and SCHED_FIFO is
       supported since Linux 2.6.31.

OPTIONS
       -a, --all-tasks
              Set or retrieve the  scheduling  attributes  of  all  the  tasks
              (threads) for a given PID.

       -b, --batch
              Set  scheduling policy to SCHED_BATCH (Linux-specific). The pri-
              ority argument has to be set to zero.

       -f, --fifo
              Set scheduling policy to SCHED_FIFO.

       -i, --idle
              Set scheduling policy to SCHED_IDLE (Linux-specific). The prior-
              ity argument has to be set to zero.

       -m, --max
              Show minimum and maximum valid priorities, then exit.

       -o, --other
              Set policy scheduling policy to SCHED_OTHER.

       -p, --pid
              Operate on an existing PID and do not launch a new task.

       -R, --reset-on-fork
              Add  SCHED_RESET_ON_FORK  flag  to  the  SCHED_FIFO  or SCHED_RR
              scheduling policy (Linux-specific).

       -r, --rr
              Set scheduling policy to SCHED_RR.  When policy is  not  defined
              the SCHED_RR is used as default.

       -v, --verbose
              Show status information.

       -V, --version
              Display version information and exit.


PERMISSIONS
       A user must possess CAP_SYS_NICE to change the scheduling attributes of
       a process.  Any user can retrieve the scheduling information.

NOTES
       Only SCHED_FIFO, SCHED_OTHER and SCHED_RR are  part  of  POSIX  1003.1b
       Process  Scheduling.  The other scheduling attributes may be ignored on
       some systems.

       Linux default scheduling policy is SCHED_OTHER.
