POSIX::RT::Scheduler - POSIX Scheduler support functions
sched_setscheduler($pid, 'rr', 10);
This module allows one to set the scheduler and the scheduler priority of processes.
The following scheduler policies are supported:
This is the default non-real-time scheduler. It doesn't have a real-time priority
This is a real-time scheduler. A fifo scheduled process runs until either it is blocked by an I/O request, it is preempted by a higher priority process, or it calls
Round-robin scheduling. This is similar to fifo scheduling, except that after a specified amount of time the thread will be
A Linux specific scheduler, useful for keeping CPU-intensive processes at normal priority without sacrificing interactivity.
A Linux specific scheduler that causes a process to be scheduled only when there's no other (non-idle scheduled) process available for running.

$priority if applicable.
$priority must be within the inclusive priority range for the scheduling policy specified by policy. If
$pid is zero, the current process is retrieved
Return the real-time priority of
$pid as an integer value.

This function returns the (inclusive) minimal and maximal values allowed for
Yield execution to the next waiting process or thread. Note that if the current process/thread is the highest priority runnable real-time scheduled process/thread available, this will be a no-op.
