NAME

sched_getscheduler - get scheduling policy (REALTIME)  

SYNOPSIS

#include <sched.h>

int sched_getscheduler(pid_t pid);
 

DESCRIPTION

The sched_getscheduler() function shall return the scheduling policy of the process specified by pid. If the value of pid is negative, the behavior of the sched_getscheduler() function is unspecified.

The values that can be returned by sched_getscheduler() are defined in the <sched.h> header.

If a process specified by pid exists, and if the calling process has permission, the scheduling policy shall be returned for the process whose process ID is equal to pid.

If pid is zero, the scheduling policy shall be returned for the calling process.  

RETURN VALUE

Upon successful completion, the sched_getscheduler() function shall return the scheduling policy of the specified process. If unsuccessful, the function shall return -1 and set errno to indicate the error.  

ERRORS

The sched_getscheduler() function shall fail if:

EPERM
The requesting process does not have permission to determine the scheduling policy of the specified process.
ESRCH
No process can be found corresponding to that specified by pid.
