Subject: [hwloc-devel] hwloc on power7
From: Jirka Hladky (jhladky_at_[hidden])

Hi,

I just got access to one POWER7 box. Both hwloc 1.0.2 and latest hwloc 1.1
seem to have problems to detect the sockets correctly.

It's IBM 8406-71Y server equipped with only one socket. On the chip there are
8 cores. lstopo seems to be wrong here, reporting 8 sockets.

I'm not sure if this problem arose in linux kernel or it's bug in lstopo code.
Does anybody else tried to run hwloc on POWER7?

Thanks
Jirka

Kernel: 2.6.32-54.el6.ppc64
