Create a scheduler profile.


#include <zircon/syscalls.h>

zx_status_t zx_profile_create(zx_handle_t root_job,
                              uint32_t options,
                              const zx_profile_info_t* profile,
                              zx_handle_t* out);


zx_profile_create() creates a new profile object.

The parameter profile specifies the settings in the profile, which in turn will be applied to threads when zx_object_set_profile() is called. The fields of profile are shown below. options must be zero.


typedef struct zx_profile_info {
  // A bitmask of ZX_PROFILE_INFO_FLAG_* values. Specifies which fields
  // below have been specified. Other fields are considered unset.
  uint32_t flags;

  // Scheduling priority. |flags| must have ZX_PROFILE_INFO_FLAG_PRIORITY set.
  int32_t priority;

  // CPUs that threads may be scheduled on. |flags| must have
  zx_cpu_set_t cpu_affinity_mask;
} zx_profile_info_t;

The flags field specifies which fields in the zx_profile_info_t structure contain valid values. Values in fields without a corresponding flag bit set will be ignored. This allows fields with values of 0 and unset fields to be distinguished, even if additional fields are added in future.

Upon success a handle for the new profile is returned.


root_job must be of type ZX_OBJ_TYPE_JOB and have ZX_RIGHT_MANAGE_PROCESS.

Caller job policy must allow ZX_POL_NEW_PROFILE.

Return value

Returns ZX_OK and a handle to the new profile (via out) on success. In the event of failure, a negative error value is returned.


ZX_ERR_BAD_HANDLE root_job is not a valid handle.

ZX_ERR_WRONG_TYPE root_job is not a job handle.

ZX_ERR_ACCESS_DENIED root_job does not have ZX_RIGHT_MANAGE_PROCESS right, or root_job is not a handle to the root job.

ZX_ERR_INVALID_ARGS One or more of the arguments provided were invalid:

  • profile or out was an invalid pointer
  • flags contains an unknown option
  • options was not zero
  • priority was an invalid priority

ZX_ERR_NO_MEMORY Failure due to lack of memory.
