SCHED_SETPARAM(2)          Linux Programmer's Manual         SCHED_SETPARAM(2)

       sched_setparam, sched_getparam - set and get scheduling parameters

       #include <sched.h>

       int sched_setparam(pid_t pid, const struct sched_param *param);

       int sched_getparam(pid_t pid, struct sched_param *param);

       struct sched_param {
           int sched_priority;

       sched_setparam()  sets  the  scheduling  parameters associated with the
       scheduling policy for the thread whose thread ID is specified  in  pid.
       If pid is zero, then the parameters of the calling thread are set.  The
       interpretation of the argument param depends on the  scheduling  policy
       of the thread identified by pid.  See sched(7) for a description of the
       scheduling policies supported under Linux.

       sched_getparam() retrieves the scheduling  parameters  for  the  thread
       identified  by pid.  If pid is zero, then the parameters of the calling
       thread are retrieved.

       sched_setparam() checks the validity of param for the scheduling policy
       of  the  thread.   The  value param->sched_priority must lie within the
       range given by sched_get_priority_min(2) and sched_get_priority_max(2).

       For a discussion of the  privileges  and  resource  limits  related  to
       scheduling priority and policy, see sched(7).

       POSIX systems on which sched_setparam() and sched_getparam() are avail-
       able define _POSIX_PRIORITY_SCHEDULING in <unistd.h>.

       On success, sched_setparam() and sched_getparam() return 0.  On  error,
       -1 is returned, and errno is set appropriately.

       EINVAL Invalid arguments: param is NULL or pid is negative

       EINVAL (sched_setparam())  The  argument  param does not make sense for
              the current scheduling policy.

       EPERM  (sched_setparam()) The caller does not have  appropriate  privi-
              leges (Linux: does not have the CAP_SYS_NICE capability).

       ESRCH  The thread whose ID is pid could not be found.
