Thread Manager

Introduction

The thread manager implements the functionality required of the thread manager as defined by POSIX 1003.1b. This standard requires that a compliant operating system provide the facilties to manage multiple threads of control and defines the API that must be provided.

The services provided by the thread manager are:

Background

Thread Attributes

Thread attributes are utilized only at thread creation time. A thread attribute structure may be initialized and passed as an argument to the pthread_create routine.

stack address
is the address of the optionally user specified stack area for this thread. If this value is NULL, then RTEMS allocates the memory for the thread stack from the RTEMS Workspace Area. Otherwise, this is the user specified address for the memory to be used for the thread's stack. Each thread must have a distinct stack area. Each processor family has different alignment rules which should be followed.
stack size
is the minimum desired size for this thread's stack area. If the size of this area as specified by the stack size attribute is smaller than the minimum for this processor family and the stack is not user specified, then RTEMS will automatically allocate a stack of the minimum size for this processor family.
contention scope
specifies the scheduling contention scope. RTEMS only supports the PTHREAD_SCOPE_PROCESS scheduling contention scope.
scheduling inheritance
specifies whether a user specified or the scheduling policy and parameters of the currently executing thread are to be used. When this is PTHREAD_INHERIT_SCHED, then the scheduling policy and parameters of the currently executing thread are inherited by the newly created thread.
scheduling policy and parameters
specify the manner in which the thread will contend for the processor. The scheduling parameters are interpreted based on the specified policy. All policies utilize the thread priority parameter.

Services

This section details the thread manager's services. A subsection is dedicated to each of this manager's services and describes the calling sequence, related constants, usage, and status codes.

pthread_attr_init - Initialize a Thread Attribute Set

?
.. index:: pthread_attr_init
?
.. index:: initialize a thread attribute set

CALLING SEQUENCE:

#include <pthread.h>
int pthread_attr_init(
    pthread_attr_t *attr
);

STATUS CODES:

EINVAL The attribute pointer argument is invalid.

DESCRIPTION:

The pthread_attr_init routine initializes the thread attributes object specified by attr with the default value for all of the individual attributes.

NOTES:

The settings in the default attributes are implementation defined. For RTEMS, the default attributes are as follows:

stackadr is not set to indicate that RTEMS is to allocate the stack memory.
stacksize is set to PTHREAD_MINIMUM_STACK_SIZE.
contentionscope is set to PTHREAD_SCOPE_PROCESS.
inheritsched is set to PTHREAD_INHERIT_SCHED to indicate that the created thread inherits its scheduling attributes from its parent.
detachstate is set to PTHREAD_CREATE_JOINABLE.

pthread_attr_destroy - Destroy a Thread Attribute Set

?
.. index:: pthread_attr_destroy
?
.. index:: destroy a thread attribute set

CALLING SEQUENCE:

#include <pthread.h>
int pthread_attr_destroy(
    pthread_attr_t *attr
);

STATUS CODES:

EINVAL The attribute pointer argument is invalid.
EINVAL The attribute set is not initialized.

DESCRIPTION:

The pthread_attr_destroy routine is used to destroy a thread attributes object. The behavior of using an attributes object after it is destroyed is implementation dependent.

NOTES:

NONE

pthread_attr_setdetachstate - Set Detach State

?
.. index:: pthread_attr_setdetachstate
?
.. index:: set detach state

CALLING SEQUENCE:

#include <pthread.h>

    pthread_attr_t *attr,
    int             detachstate
);

STATUS CODES:

EINVAL The attribute pointer argument is invalid.
EINVAL The attribute set is not initialized.
EINVAL The detachstate argument is invalid.

DESCRIPTION:

The pthread_attr_setdetachstate routine is used to value of the detachstate attribute. This attribute controls whether the thread is created in a detached state.

The detachstate can be either PTHREAD_CREATE_DETACHED or PTHREAD_CREATE_JOINABLE. The default value for all threads is PTHREAD_CREATE_JOINABLE.

NOTES:

If a thread is in a detached state, then the use of the ID with the pthread_detach or pthread_join routines is an error.

The contentionscope must be either PTHREAD_SCOPE_SYSTEM to indicate that the thread is to be within system scheduling contention or PTHREAD_SCOPE_PROCESS indicating that the thread is to be within the process scheduling contention scope.

NOTES:

As required by POSIX, RTEMS defines the feature symbol _POSIX_THREAD_PRIORITY_SCHEDULING to indicate that the family of routines to which this routine belongs is supported.

pthread_attr_getscope - Get Thread Scheduling Scope

?
.. index:: pthread_attr_getscope
?
.. index:: get thread scheduling scope

EINVAL The attribute set is not initialized.
EINVAL The specified scheduler inheritance argument is invalid.

DESCRIPTION:

The pthread_attr_setinheritsched routine is used to set the inherit scheduler field in the thread attribute object attr to the value specified by inheritsched.

The contentionscope must be either PTHREAD_INHERIT_SCHED to indicate that the thread is to inherit the scheduling policy and parameters fromthe creating thread, or PTHREAD_EXPLICIT_SCHED to indicate that the scheduling policy and parameters for this thread are to be set from the corresponding values in the attributes object. If contentionscope is PTHREAD_INHERIT_SCHED, then the scheduling attributes in the attr structure will be ignored at thread creation time.

NOTES:

As required by POSIX, RTEMS defines the feature symbol _POSIX_THREAD_PRIORITY_SCHEDULING to indicate that the family of routines to which this routine belongs is supported.

pthread_attr_getinheritsched - Get Inherit Scheduler Flag

?

pthread_create - Create a Thread

?
.. index:: pthread_create
?
.. index:: create a thread

CALLING SEQUENCE:

#include <pthread.h>
int pthread_create(
    pthread_t             *thread,
    const pthread_attr_t  *attr,
    void                 (*start_routine)( void *),
    void                  *arg
);

STATUS CODES:

EINVAL The attribute set is not initialized.
EINVAL The user specified a stack address and the size of the area was not large enough to meet this processor's minimum stack requirements.
EINVAL The specified scheduler inheritance policy was invalid.
ENOTSUP The specified contention scope was PTHREAD_SCOPE_PROCESS.
EINVAL The specified thread priority was invalid.
EINVAL The specified scheduling policy was invalid.
EINVAL The scheduling policy was SCHED_SPORADIC and the specified replenishment period is less than the initial budget.
EINVAL The scheduling policy was SCHED_SPORADIC and the specified low priority is invalid.
EAGAIN The system lacked the necessary resources to create another thread, or the self imposed limit on the total number of threads in a process PTHREAD_THREAD_MAX would be exceeded.
EINVAL Invalid argument passed.

DESCRIPTION:

The pthread_create routine is used to create a new thread with the attributes specified by attr. If the attr argument is NULL, then the default attribute set will be used. Modification of the contents of attr after this thread is created does not have an impact on this thread.

The thread begins execution at the address specified by start_routine with arg as its only argument. If start_routine returns, then it is functionally equivalent to the thread executing the pthread_exit service.

Upon successful completion, the ID of the created thread is returned in the thread argument.

NOTES:

There is no concept of a single main thread in RTEMS as there is in a tradition UNIX system. POSIX requires that the implicit return of the main thread results in the same effects as if there were a call to exit. This does not occur in RTEMS.

The signal mask of the newly created thread is inherited from its creator and the set of pending signals for this thread is empty.

pthread_exit - Terminate the Current Thread

?
.. index:: pthread_exit
?
.. index:: terminate the current thread

CALLING SEQUENCE:

#include <pthread.h>
void pthread_exit(
    void *status
);

STATUS CODES:

NONE

DESCRIPTION:

The pthread_exit routine is used to terminate the calling thread. The status is made available to any successful join with the terminating thread.

When a thread returns from its start routine, it results in an implicit call to the pthread_exit routine with the return value of the function serving as the argument to pthread_exit.

NOTES:

Any cancellation cleanup handlers that hace been pushed and not yet popped shall be popped in reverse of the order that they were pushed. After all cancellation cleanup handlers have been executed, if the thread has any thread-specific data, destructors for that data will be invoked.

Thread termination does not release or free any application visible resources including byt not limited to mutexes, file descriptors, allocated memory, etc.. Similarly, exitting a thread does not result in any process-oriented cleanup activity.

There is no concept of a single main thread in RTEMS as there is in a tradition UNIX system. POSIX requires that the implicit return of the main thread results in the same effects as if there were a call to exit. This does not occur in RTEMS.

All access to any automatic variables allocated by the threads is lost when the thread exits. Thus references (i.e. pointers) to local variables of a thread should not be used in a global manner without care. As a specific example, a pointer to a local variable should NOT be used as the return value.

pthread_detach - Detach a Thread

?
.. index:: pthread_detach
?
.. index:: detach a thread

CALLING SEQUENCE:

#include <pthread.h>
int pthread_detach(
    pthread_t thread
);

STATUS CODES:

ESRCH The thread specified is invalid.
EINVAL The thread specified is not a joinable thread.

DESCRIPTION:

The pthread_detach routine is used to to indicate that storage for thread can be reclaimed when the thread terminates without another thread joinging with it.

NOTES:

If any threads have previously joined with the specified thread, then they will remain joined with that thread. Any subsequent calls to pthread_join on the specified thread will fail.

pthread_getattr_np - Get Thread Attributes

?
.. index:: pthread_getattr_np
?
.. index:: get thread attributes

CALLING SEQUENCE:

#define _GNU_SOURCE
#include <pthread.h>
int pthread_getattr_np(
    pthread_t       thread,
    pthread_attr_t *attr
);

STATUS CODES:

ESRCH The thread specified is invalid.
EINVAL The attribute pointer argument is invalid.

DESCRIPTION:

The pthread_getattr_np routine is used to obtain the attributes associated with thread.

NOTES:

Modification of the execution modes and priority through the Classic API may result in a combination that is not representable in the POSIX API.

pthread_join - Wait for Thread Termination

?
.. index:: pthread_join
?
.. index:: wait for thread termination

CALLING SEQUENCE:

#include <pthread.h>
int pthread_join(
    pthread_t    thread,
    void       **value_ptr
);

STATUS CODES:

ESRCH The thread specified is invalid.
EINVAL The thread specified is not a joinable thread.
EDEADLK A deadlock was detected or thread is the calling thread.

DESCRIPTION:

The pthread_join routine suspends execution of the calling thread until thread terminates. If thread has already terminated, then this routine returns immediately. The value returned by thread (i.e. passed to pthread_exit is returned in value_ptr.

When this routine returns, then thread has been terminated.

NOTES:

The results of multiple simultaneous joins on the same thread is undefined.

If any threads have previously joined with the specified thread, then they will remain joined with that thread. Any subsequent calls to pthread_join on the specified thread will fail.

If value_ptr is NULL, then no value is returned.

pthread_self - Get Thread ID

?
.. index:: pthread_self
?
.. index:: get thread id

CALLING SEQUENCE:

#include <pthread.h>
pthread_t pthread_self( void );

STATUS CODES:

DESCRIPTION:

This routine returns the ID of the calling thread.

NOTES:

NONE

pthread_equal - Compare Thread IDs

?
.. index:: pthread_equal
?
.. index:: compare thread ids

CALLING SEQUENCE:

#include <pthread.h>
int pthread_equal(
    pthread_t t1,
    pthread_t t2
);

STATUS CODES:

zero The thread ids are not equal.
non-zero The thread ids are equal.

DESCRIPTION:

The pthread_equal routine is used to compare two thread IDs and determine if they are equal.

NOTES:

The behavior is undefined if the thread IDs are not valid.

pthread_once - Dynamic Package Initialization

?
.. index:: pthread_once
?
.. index:: dynamic package initialization

CALLING SEQUENCE:

#include <pthread.h>
pthread_once_t once_control = PTHREAD_ONCE_INIT;
int pthread_once(
    pthread_once_t   *once_control,
    void            (*init_routine)(void)
);

STATUS CODES:

NONE

DESCRIPTION:

The pthread_once routine is used to provide controlled initialization of variables. The first call to pthread_once by any thread with the same once_control will result in the init_routine being invoked with no arguments. Subsequent calls to pthread_once with the same once_control will have no effect.

The init_routine is guaranteed to have run to completion when this routine returns to the caller.

NOTES:

The behavior of pthread_once is undefined if once_control is automatic storage (i.e. on a task stack) or is not initialized using PTHREAD_ONCE_INIT.

pthread_setschedparam - Set Thread Scheduling Parameters

?
.. index:: pthread_setschedparam
?
.. index:: set thread scheduling parameters

CALLING SEQUENCE:

STATUS CODES:

EINVAL The scheduling parameters indicated by the parameter param is invalid.
EINVAL The value specified by policy is invalid.
EINVAL The scheduling policy was SCHED_SPORADIC and the specified replenishment period is less than the initial budget.
EINVAL The scheduling policy was SCHED_SPORADIC and the specified low priority is invalid.
ESRCH The thread indicated was invalid.

DESCRIPTION:

The pthread_setschedparam routine is used to set the scheduler parameters currently associated with the thread specified by thread to the policy specified by policy. The contents of param are interpreted based upon the policy argument.

NOTES:

As required by POSIX, RTEMS defines the feature symbol _POSIX_THREAD_PRIORITY_SCHEDULING to indicate that the family of routines to which this routine belongs is supported.

pthread_getschedparam - Get Thread Scheduling Parameters

?
.. index:: pthread_getschedparam
?
.. index:: get thread scheduling parameters

CALLING SEQUENCE:

#include <pthread.h>
int pthread_getschedparam(
    pthread_t           thread,
    int                *policy,
    struct sched_param *param
);

STATUS CODES:

EINVAL The policy pointer argument is invalid.
EINVAL The scheduling parameters pointer argument is invalid.
ESRCH The thread indicated by the parameter thread is invalid.

DESCRIPTION:

The pthread_getschedparam routine is used to obtain the scheduler policy and parameters associated with thread. The current policy and associated parameters values returned in``policy`` and param, respectively.

NOTES:

As required by POSIX, RTEMS defines the feature symbol _POSIX_THREAD_PRIORITY_SCHEDULING to indicate that the family of routines to which this routine belongs is supported.
