       chrt - manipulate the real-time attributes of a process


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


       chrt  sets  or  retrieves  the real-time scheduling attributes of an existing 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


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

       -b, --batch
              Set scheduling policy to SCHED_BATCH (Linux-specific). The priority 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 priority 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

       -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.

       -h, --help
              Display help text and exit.


       The default behavior is to run a new command:
              chrt priority command [arguments]

       You can also retrieve the real-time attributes of an existing task:
              chrt -p pid

       Or set them:
              chrt -r -p priority pid


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


       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.


       taskset(1), nice(1), renice(1)

       See sched_setscheduler(2) for a description of the Linux scheduling scheme.
