The Linux scheduler utilities take advantage of the scheduler family of syscalls that Linux implements across various kernels. These system calls implement interfaces for scheduler-related parameters such as CPU affinity and real-time attributes. The standard UNIX utilities do not provide support for these interfaces, thus this package. The programs that are included in this package are chrt and taskset. Together with nice and renice (not included), they allow full control of process scheduling parameters. The taskset program allows manipulation of task CPU affinity and the chrt program allows manipulation of scheduling priority and policy.
