SCHED_SETPARAM(2)	   Linux Programmers Manual	    SCHED_SETPARAM(2)

       sched_setparam, sched_getparam - set and get scheduling parameters


       int sched_setparam(pid_t pid, const struct sched_param *param);

       int sched_getparam(pid_t pid, struct sched_param *param);

       struct sched_param {
	   int sched_priority;

       sched_setparam()  sets  the  scheduling	parameters associated with the
       scheduling policy for the process identified by pid.  If pid  is  zero,
       then the parameters of the calling process are set.  The interpretation
       of the argument param depends on the scheduling policy of  the  process
       identified  by pid.  See sched_setscheduler(2) for a description of the
       scheduling policies supported under Linux.

       sched_getparam() retrieves the scheduling parameters  for  the  process
       identified  by pid.  If pid is zero, then the parameters of the calling
       process are retrieved.

       sched_setparam() checks the validity of param for the scheduling policy
       of  the	process.   The value param->sched_priority must lie within the
       range given by sched_get_priority_min(2) and sched_get_priority_max(2).

       For  a  discussion  of  the  privileges	and resource limits related to
       scheduling priority and policy, see sched_setscheduler(2).

       POSIX systems on which sched_setparam() and sched_getparam() are avail
       able define _POSIX_PRIORITY_SCHEDULING in .

       On  success, sched_setparam() and sched_getparam() return 0.  On error,
       -1 is returned, and errno is set appropriately.

       EINVAL The argument param does not make sense for the current  schedul
	      ing policy.

       EPERM  The calling process does not have appropriate privileges (Linux:
	      does not have the CAP_SYS_NICE capability).

       ESRCH  The process whose ID is pid could not be found.
