Linux Process Priority


In real time systems, it might be necessary to run an application with high priority other than rest of applications. Or at least you may prefer to control priority of all the running applications. Importance of this control appears more if you are using real times like Linux with tens of processes that you don’t have control over. It is possible to build your real time application in Linux with high priority using some known methods and that is what is going to be discussed in this tutorial.
