pthread_attr_setinheritsched, pthread_attr_getinheritsched − set/get inherit-scheduler attribute in thread attributes object
int pthread_attr_getinheritsched(const pthread_attr_t *attr,
Compile and link with −pthread.
The pthread_attr_setinheritsched() function sets the inherit-scheduler attribute of the thread attributes object referred to by attr to the value specified in inheritsched. The inherit-scheduler attribute determines whether a thread created using the thread attributes object attr will inherit its scheduling attributes from the calling thread or whether it will take them from attr.
The following scheduling attributes are affected by the inherit-scheduler attribute: scheduling policy (pthread_attr_setschedpolicy(3)), scheduling priority (pthread_attr_setschedparam(3)), and contention scope (pthread_attr_setscope(3)).
values may be specified in inheritsched:
Threads that are created using attr inherit scheduling attributes from the creating thread; the scheduling attributes in attr are ignored.
Threads that are created using attr take their scheduling attributes from the values specified by the attributes object.
The default setting of the inherit-scheduler attribute in a newly initialized thread attributes object is PTHREAD_INHERIT_SCHED.
The pthread_attr_getinheritsched() returns the inherit-scheduler attribute of the thread attributes object attr in the buffer pointed to by inheritsched.
On success, these functions return 0; on error, they return a nonzero error number.
pthread_attr_setinheritsched() can fail with the following error:
Invalid value in inheritsched.
POSIX.1-2001 also documents an optional ENOTSUP error ("attempt was made to set the attribute to an unsupported value") for pthread_attr_setinheritsched().
The pthread_attr_setinheritsched() and pthread_attr_getinheritsched() functions are thread-safe.
As at glibc 2.8, if a thread attributes object is initialized using pthread_attr_init(3), then the scheduling policy of the attributes object is set to SCHED_OTHER and the scheduling priority is set to 0. However, if the inherit-scheduler attribute is then set to PTHREAD_EXPLICIT_SCHED, then a thread created using the attribute object wrongly inherits its scheduling attributes from the creating thread. This bug does not occur if either the scheduling policy or scheduling priority attribute is explicitly set in the thread attributes object before calling pthread_create(3).
