How to add confg file to allow UHD drive set priority?

  1. May 15, 2017 #1
    I have Ettus B210 and trying to add 1 line configuration file "/etc/security/limits.conf" which will allow UHD drive to set priority.

    So , I typed this command to edit file: gksudo gedit /etc/security/limits.conf and add:

    #@student hard nproc 20
    #@faculty soft nproc 20
    #@faculty hard nproc 50
    #ftp hard nproc 0
    #ftp - chroot /ftp
    #@student - maxlogins 4
    @GROUP - rtprio 99
    # End of file

    I want to stop this warning :

    UHD Warning:
    Unable to set the thread priority. Performance may be negatively affected.
    Please see the general application notes in the manual for instructions.
    EnvironmentError: OSError: error in pthread_setschedparam

    following this instruction from this link: https://files.ettus.com/manual/page_general.html but I can not stop that message? So I need help from you.

    If anyone knows, please help me out.

    Thank you.
