NAME

runclass - Runs a command in a specific scheduler class  

SYNOPSIS

/usr/sbin/runclass class_name command [argument...]


 

DESCRIPTION

The runclass lets you choose which scheduler class to run the command command in. The argument specifies any options or arguments for the specified command. All the threads created by the command, and its children, inherit the class binding. The alloted CPU percentage of the specified class may not be higher than the user's current class (if any) unless the user has superuser authority.

If class scheduling is not enabled, the command will terminate without executing the requested command.
 

NOTES

runclass changes the process group of itself and all processes created by it. This means that if runclass is executed from a script, a control C from the terminal will not kill it. Normal use of the kill(1) command will have the desired effect.
