Manually assigns processes to a class or cancels prior manual assignments for processes.
wlmassign [ -s | -S ] [ -u | Class_Name ] [ PID_List ] [ -g Pgid_List ]
The wlmassign command:
The wlmassign command allows to specify processes using a list of PIDs, a list of pgids, or both. The format of these lists is:
The name of a valid superclass or subclass must be specified to manually assign the target processes to a class. If the target class is a superclass, each process is assigned to one of the subclasses of the specified superclass according to the assignment rules for the subclasses of this superclass.
A manual assignment remains in effect (and a process remains in its manually assigned class) until:
The name of a valid superclass or subclass must be specified to manually assign the target processes to a class. The assignment can be done or canceled at the superclass level, the subclass level or both. The interactions between automatic assignment, inheritance and manual assignment are detailed in the concept article.
For a manual assignment:
wlmassign super1.sub2 -S pid1
is equivalent to:
wlmassign super1 pid1
In order to assign a process to a class or cancel a prior manual assignment, the user must have authority both on the process and on the target class. These constraints translate into the following:
This defines 3 levels of privilege among the persons who can manually assign processes to classes, root being the highest. In order for a user to modify or terminate a manual assignment, they must have at least the same level of privilege as the person who issued the last manual assignment.
|-g Pgid_list||Indicates that the following list is a list of pgids.|
|-S||Specifies that the assignment is to be done or canceled at the superclass level only. This flag is used with a subclass name of the form supername.subname.|
|-s||Specifies that the assignment is to be done or canceled at the subclass level only. This flag is used with a subclass name of the form supername.subname.|
|-u||Cancel any manual assignment in effect for the processes in the pid_list or the pgid_list. If none of the -s or -S flags are used, this cancels the manual assignments for both the superclass and the subclass level.|
The chclass command, lsclass command, mkclass command, and rmclass command.
