PR_SETITIMER(3PROC) Process Control Library Functions PR_SETITIMER(3PROC)

pr_setitimerinject setitimer system call into victim process

Process Control Library (libproc, -lproc)

#include <libproc.h>

pr_setitimer(struct ps_prochandle *P, int which, const struct itimerval *itv, struct interval *oitv);

The () function injects the setitimer(2) system call into the target process P by means of the agent LWP. If the process handle P is the value NULL then this will be equivalent to calling setitimer(2) on the currently running process.

The arguments which, itv, and oitv have the same meaning as in setitimer(2). See setitimer(2) for the full description and purpose of the system call and its arguments.

The () function only works on active processes. Process handles that correspond to core files, zombie processes, or ELF objects do not support system call injection.

Upon successful completion, the pr_setitimer() function's return value is that described in setitimer(2). Otherwise, is returned and is set to ENOSYS to indicate that the system call could not be injected.

For the full list of errors see the ERRORS section in setitimer(2).

The pr_setitimer() function will fail if:

An error occurred while trying to invoke the agent LWP and inject a system call in the process handle P or the process handle P does not support system call injection.

See in libproc(3LIB).
