Queries/alters process' scheduling policy and CPU affinity
DescriptionSchedtool can query or alter a process' scheduling policy in Linux, specifically assigning SCHED_NORMAL, _FIFO, _RR, _BATCH, _ISO or _IDLEPRIO. It can set static priority for _FIFO and _RR. Setting CPU-affinity and (re)nicing is also possible, making schedtool the definitive interface to Linux scheduler. It can be used to avoid skips and glitches in A/V applications, to lock processes onto given CPUs on SMP/NUMA systems, which may be beneficial for networking or benchmarks, or to adjust nice-levels of lesser important jobs to maintain a high amount of interactive responsiveness under high load. It is also handy to manage realtime processes. If you don't know about scheduling policies, you probably don't want to use this program - or learn and read "man sched_setscheduler". Some supported scheduling policies (such as SCHED_ISO, or SCHED_IDLEPRIO) need a patched kernel (eg. Con Kolivas' -ck patchset).
Upload new screenshots
Thanks for uploading more screenshots. Please note:
- Your screenshot should contain a typical scene when working with it.
- Take only a screenshot of the respective application and not of your whole desktop (unless the screenshot is meant for a window manager).
- Your screenshots must be in PNG format.
- You can upload multiple images at once.
- Your screenshot need to be approved by the moderators first. You will already see your screenshot but it will not be visible to others instantly. If moderators reject your upload you will get notified next time you visit this site (requires cookies).
- Images larger than 800x600 pixels will automatically be reduced. So don't try to capture too much detail in a screenshot. It may become unreadable. Shrink the applications window if possible.
- Screenshots are made public and can freely be used by anyone.
- Useful programs for making screenshots are shutter, ksnapshot (KDE), gimp, xwd or scrot. See the Debian wiki for more information on how to make screenshots under Debian.
- Please set your language to english so that everybody understands it. If you don't use english by default please start your application from a shell using after setting "export LANG=C".
