       rtkitctl - Realtime Policy and Watchdog daemon control


       rtkitctl [options]


       RealtimeKit  is  a  D-Bus  system  service  that changes the scheduling
       policy of user processes/threads to SCHED_RR (i.e. realtime  scheduling
       mode)  on  request.  It is intended to be used as a secure mechanism to
       allow real-time scheduling to be used by normal user processes.
