Rolf,

We have identified a need in certain high performance applications to specify memory sections -> L3 -> L2 - >L1 -> specific core -> specific CPU -> specific machine. These tend toward hybridized CUDA apps where other sections of the CPU are involved in non-CUDA (non-GPU) functions.  In our discussions, however, we haven't come across others who see the same need. IOW, we are a very small market.

I see in the sm BTL that there is the concept of memory affinity and the potential to support multiple memory pools.  I am curious if anyone is making use of that feature?  I am looking in the function sm_btl_first_time_init() in the btl_sm.c file.

 

Thanks,

Rolf
