RR_GET_INTERVAL(2)         Linux Programmer's Manual        RR_GET_INTERVAL(2)



NAME
       sched_rr_get_interval   -  get  the  SCHED_RR  interval  for  the named(5,8)
       process

SYNOPSIS
       #include <sched.h>

       int sched_rr_get_interval(pid_t pid, struct timespec *tp);

       struct timespec {
           time_t  tv_sec;     /* seconds */
           long    tv_nsec;    /* nanoseconds */
       };

DESCRIPTION
       sched_rr_get_interval writes into the timespec structure pointed to  by
       tp  the  round robin time(1,2,n) quantum for the process identified by pid. If
       pid is zero, the time(1,2,n) quantum for the calling process is  written  into
       *tp. The identified process should be running under the SCHED_RR sched-
       uling policy.

       The round robin time(1,2,n) quantum value is not alterable under Linux 1.3.81.

       POSIX  systems  on  which  sched_rr_get_interval  is  available  define
       _POSIX_PRIORITY_SCHEDULING in(1,8) <unistd.h>.


RETURN VALUE
       On success, sched_rr_get_interval returns 0.  On error(8,n), -1 is returned,
       and errno is set(7,n,1 builtins) appropriately.

ERRORS
       EFAULT Problem with copying information to userspace.

       EINVAL Invalid pid.

       ENOSYS The system call is not yet implemented.

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

CONFORMING TO
       POSIX.1b (formerly POSIX.4)

BUGS
       As  of  Linux  1.3.81  sched_rr_get_interval returns with error(8,n) ENOSYS,
       because SCHED_RR has not yet been fully implemented  and  tested  prop-
       erly.
