sched_getscheduler - get scheduling policy (REALTIME)
int sched_getscheduler(pid_t pid);
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.
Pthreads-w32 only supports the SCHED_OTHER policy, which is the only value that can be returned. However, checks on pid and permissions are performed first so that the other useful side effects of this routine are retained.
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.
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.
The sched_getscheduler function shall fail if:
