setpgid - Set the process group ID of a process
The setpgid() function sets the process group ID of the process specified by pid to pgid. If pid is zero, the process ID of the current process is used. If pgid is zero, the process ID of the process specified by pid is used. The setpgid() system call is allowed only for a process with a single thread.
Setpgid can be used to implement job control in a shell. In a single-threaded program, setpgid() can be used to create a new process group within the same session.
pid_t- The process ID of the process.
pid_t- The ID of the process group to which the process should be moved.
- K - Originated from kernel-space.
To instrument the process control system call to detect changes in the process group ID.
Example Use Case¶
Monitoring changes in process group IDs, particularly when using Job Control (e.g. with a shell).
- execve() - Used to create a new process session and set the process group ID.
- setpgrp() - Used to set the process group ID of the current process and create a new process group.
