NAME

       ionice - set or get process I/O scheduling class and priority

SYNOPSIS

       ionice [-c class] [-n level] [-t] -p PID...
       ionice [-c class] [-n level] [-t] command [argument...]

As of this writing, a process can be in one of three scheduling classes:

Idle

A program running with idle I/O priority will only get disk time when no other program has asked for disk I/O for a defined grace period. The impact of an idle I/O process on normal system activity should be zero. This scheduling class does not take a priority argument. Presently, this scheduling class is per‐mitted for an ordinary user (since kernel 2.6.25)
