How set the Priority of a process

by Giulio Ballardin last modified 2006-05-19 09:49

Few lines to modify the priority of a process

To set the priority of a process:

> ps -ax

> prio xx pid


  • xx is the priority: 0 is the minimum and 255 is the Maximum
  • pid is the id of the process


> prio 30 gdb -d /virgoDev/Sa/EServerDSP/v3r12p1/src /virgoDev/Sa/EServerDSP/v3r12p1/RIO806X/ESDSP.exe 147

Otherwise it's possibile set the priority in the code:

int main(int argc, char* argv[])




 setpriority(witch, who, prio);


For more details use online manual of Linux:

> man setpriority
