Summary:  Tool for setting and querying scheduling parameters
Description: 
schedtool can set all scheduling parameters Linux is capable of or dis-
play information for given processes.

Long-running, non-interactive tasks may  benefit  from  SCHED_BATCH  as
timeslices are longer, less system-time is wasted by computing the next
runnable process and the caches stay stable.

Audio/video or other near-realtime applications may run with less skip-
ping  if  set  to SCHED_RR.  Use the static priority-switch -p to fine-
tune inter-process-hierarchies.

schedtool now supports setting the  CPU-affinity  introduced  in  linux
2.5.8.
