Use pthread_attr_getschedpolicy() to retrieve the scheduling policy. Currently, only the Solaris-based SCHED_OTHER default value is supported in pthreads.
Prototype: int pthread_attr_getschedpolicy(pthread_attr_t *tattr, int *policy);
#include <pthread.h> pthread_attr_t tattr; int policy; int ret; /* get scheduling policy of thread */ ret = pthread_attr_getschedpolicy (&tattr, &policy);
Returns zero after completing successfully. Any other returned value indicates that an error occurred. If the following condition occurs, the function fails and returns the corresponding value.
