schedtool interfaces with the Linux CPU scheduler. It allows the user to set and query the CPU-affinity and nice-levels of processes, as well as all scheduling policies, like batch or real-time (RR/FIFO) classes and their priorities. All special scheduling classes of the -ck kernel patchset are also supported.

Release Notes: The affinity calls were migrated to the new cpu_set_t API, so schedtool works again with newer glibc versions. A minor bug was fixed that prevented schedtool from working on valid PIDs when one invalid PID was given in the list.
Release Notes: Installing the man page works again. Many typos have been corrected.
Release Notes: Code and documentation consistency cleanups were made.
Release Notes: The man page has been made more clear.
Release Notes: A new scheduling policy, SCHED_IDLEPRIO, is now directly supported.
