NAME

     sched_get_priority_max, sched_get_priority_min, sched_rr_get_interval -
     get scheduling parameter limits

LIBRARY

     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS

     #include <sched.h>

     int
     sched_get_priority_max(int policy);

     int
     sched_get_priority_min(int policy);

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

DESCRIPTION

     The sched_get_priority_max() and sched_get_priority_min() system calls
     return the appropriate maximum or minimum, respectively, for the
     scheduling policy specified by policy.  The sched_rr_get_interval()
     system call updates the timespec structure referenced by the interval
     argument to contain the current execution time limit (i.e., time quantum)
     for the process specified by pid.  If pid is zero, the current execution
     time limit for the calling process is returned.

     The value of policy should be one of the scheduling policy values defined
     in <sched.h>:

     [SCHED_FIFO]   First-in-first-out fixed priority scheduling with no round
                    robin scheduling;

     [SCHED_OTHER]  The standard time sharing scheduler;

     [SCHED_RR]     Round-robin scheduling across same priority processes.

RETURN VALUES

     If successful, the sched_get_priority_max() and sched_get_priority_min()
     system calls shall return the appropriate maximum or minimum values,
     respectively.  If unsuccessful, they shall return a value of -1 and set
     errno to indicate the error.

     The sched_rr_get_interval() function returns the value 0 if successful;
     otherwise the value -1 is returned and the global variable errno is set
     to indicate the error.

ERRORS

     On failure errno will be set to the corresponding value:

     [EINVAL]           The value of the policy argument does not represent a
                        defined scheduling policy.

     [ENOSYS]           The sched_get_priority_max(),
                        sched_get_priority_min(), and sched_rr_get_interval()
                        system calls are not supported by the implementation.

     [ESRCH]            No process can be found corresponding to that
                        specified by pid.

STANDARDS

     The sched_get_priority_max(), sched_get_priority_min(), and
     sched_rr_get_interval() system calls conform to IEEE Std 1003.1b-1993
     (“POSIX.1”).
