Subject: [hwloc-users] q about mem binding API usage
From: Vlad (vlad_at_[hidden])

Greetings,

This might be a naive question, but I'd like to clarify nonetheless: to
provide any sort of affinity guarantees, hwloc mem binding APIs assume that
any memory allocation is done exclusively via hwloc_alloc_membind() and
friends? And if I use "raw" calls to malloc() or posix_memalign() etc then
any ensuing affinity will be incidental at best?

Thank you in advance,
Vlad
