runclass(1)							   runclass(1)

       runclass - Runs a command in a specific scheduling class

       /usr/sbin/runclass class_name command [argument ...]

       An argument to the command being run.  The name of the scheduling class
       in which the command is run.  The command being run.

       The runclass utility lets you run a command (including any of its argu‐
       ments)  in  a  scheduling class. All the threads created by the command
       process, and its subprocesses, inherit the class	 binding.  Unless  the
       user  entering the runclass command has superuser authority, the allot‐
       ted CPU percentage of the specified class may not be  higher  than  the
       user's current class (if any).

       If class scheduling is not enabled, the runclass command terminates and
       does not execute the requested command.

       Scheduling classes are usually  created	by  the	 class_admin  command,
       which  also  allows  you	 to move processes to a scheduling class after
       they start. The runclass command is the way you can execute an applica‐
       tion  so	 that  its  processes  automatically  start up in a scheduling

       The runclass command changes the process group of itself and  all  pro‐
       cesses  created	by it.	This means that if runclass is executed from a
       script, entering Control C from the terminal will not kill  these  pro‐
       cesses. In this case, using the kill command is required.

       Commands: kill(1), class_admin(8)
