       sched_rr_get_interval - get the SCHED_RR interval for the named process


       #include <sched.h>

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


       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

       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.


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


       EFAULT Problem with copying information to user space.

       EINVAL Invalid pid.

       ESRCH  Could not find a process with the ID pid.


       POSIX.1-2001, POSIX.1-2008.


       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
       quantum 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.

       Linux 3.9 added  a  new  mechanism  for  adjusting  (and  viewing)  the
       SCHED_RR   quantum:   the  /proc/sys/kernel/sched_rr_timeslice_ms  file
       exposes the quantum as a  millisecond  value,  whose  default  is  100.
       Writing 0 to this file resets the quantum to the default value.
