    Setting process priority (niceness)

    GeoffA

      Hi everyone,

       

      I notice that the standard Linux build for the Edison does not include the 'nice' command for setting the priority of a process. Is there another way to designate a process as high priority?

       

      I have encountered issues with the SPI speed (as described by others in this thread: Using The SPI Port Without the mraa Library Problems - there is a long delay between bytes) and I'm wondering if it could be due to a low process priority.

       

      Thanks!
