pthread_attr_setinheritsched: get and
PROLOGThis manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual. The Linux implementation of this interface may differ (consult the corresponding Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior), or the interface may not be implemented on Linux.
pthread_attr_getinheritsched, pthread_attr_setinheritsched - get and set the inheritsched attribute (REALTIME THREADS)
The pthread_attr_getinheritsched(), and pthread_attr_setinheritsched() functions, respectively, shall get and set the inheritsched attribute in the attr argument.
When the attributes objects are used by pthread_create(), the inheritsched attribute determines how the other scheduling attributes of the created thread shall be set.
Specifies that the thread scheduling attributes shall be inherited from the creating thread, and the scheduling attributes in this attr argument shall be ignored.
Specifies that the thread scheduling attributes shall be set to the corresponding values from this attributes object.
The symbols PTHREAD_INHERIT_SCHED and PTHREAD_EXPLICIT_SCHED are defined in the <pthread.h> header.
The following thread scheduling attributes defined by IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 are affected by the inheritsched attribute: scheduling policy ( schedpolicy), scheduling parameters ( schedparam), and scheduling contention scope ( contentionscope).
The pthread_attr_setinheritsched() function may fail if:
- The value of inheritsched is not valid.
An attempt was made to set the attribute to an unsupported value.
These functions shall not return an error code of [EINTR].
