This question needs more clarification or at least needs to be more specific. Solaris uses scheduling classes (currently (TS, RT, SYS and IA) each class uses class specific functions to do its work. i.e. a real-time fork() is different than a time-share fork(). Also there is a large interaction with the /proc filesystem. This is entirely different than 'generic' (I assume you mean BSD) UNIX where there is only one class and priorities are in different ranges. I will be pleased to answer more specific questions. You may want to refer to an article I wrote for SUnExpert magazine "Sucheduling in SunOS 5.x"
