schedcpu process

I get the following when I run the top command on my server (HP UX 11.23). Can anyone tell me what schedcpu is and what it does?

CPU 0
PID 39
USERNAME root
PRI 152
STATE run
%CPU 0.49
COMMAND schedcpu

Thank you!

Re: schedcpu process

Some kernel demon. An old thread that mentions it:

Re: schedcpu process

all you need to know is that (as Dennis said), it's a kernel daemon and you shludn't touch it!

Actually schedcpu is repsonsible for adjusting thread priorities and balancing threads across available run queues (i.e. CPUs/Cores)

Re: schedcpu process

I believe that it is a process related with adjust thread priority , with its percentage of CPU utility and priority and Process ID.

in detail:
Every 1 second, schedcpu() decrements the kt_cpu value for each thread on the run queue. setpri() is called to calculate a new priority of the current thread being examined in the schedcpu()
