sched_rr_get_interval


SYNOPSIS
       #include <sched.h>

       int sched_rr_get_interval(pid_t pid, struct timespec * tp);

DESCRIPTION
       sched_rr_get_interval()  writes  into the timespec structure pointed to
       by tp the round-robin time quantum for the process identified  by  pid.
       The  specified  process should be running under the SCHED_RR scheduling
       policy.

       The timespec structure has the following form:

           struct timespec {
               time_t tv_sec;    /* seconds */
               long   tv_nsec;   /* nanoseconds */
           };

       If pid is zero, the time quantum for the  calling  process  is  written
       into *tp.

RETURN VALUE
       On  success,  sched_rr_get_interval()  returns  0.   On  error,  -1  is
       returned, and errno is set appropriately.

ERRORS
       EFAULT Problem with copying information to user space.

       EINVAL Invalid pid.

       ENOSYS The system call is not yet implemented (only on rather old  ker-
              nels).

       ESRCH  Could not find a process with the ID pid.

CONFORMING TO
       POSIX.1-2001.

NOTES
       POSIX  systems  on  which  sched_rr_get_interval()  is available define
       _POSIX_PRIORITY_SCHEDULING in <unistd.h>.

   Linux notes
       POSIX does not specify any mechanism for controlling the  size  of  the
       round-robin  time quantum.  Older Linux kernels provide a (nonportable)
       method of doing this.  The quantum can be controlled by  adjusting  the
       process's nice value (see setpriority(2)).  Assigning a negative (i.e.,
       high) nice value results in a  longer  quantum;  assigning  a  positive
       (i.e., low) nice value results in a shorter quantum.  The default quan-
       tum is 0.1 seconds; the degree to which changing the nice value affects
       the quantum has varied somewhat across kernel versions.  This method of
       adjusting the quantum was removed starting with Linux 2.6.24.
