33. Threads: Further Details > Advanced Features of the Pthreads API

Advanced Features of the Pthreads API

Some advanced features of the Pthreads API include the following:

  • Realtime scheduling: We can set realtime scheduling policies and priorities for threads. This is similar to the process realtime scheduling system calls described in Section 35.3.

  • Process shared mutexes and condition variables: SUSv3 specifies an option to allow mutexes and condition variables to be shared between processes (rather than just among the threads of a single process). In this case, the condition variable or mutex must be located in a region of memory shared between the processes. NPTL supports this feature.
