Distributing items over a topology

Enumerations

enum  hwloc_distrib_flags_e { HWLOC_DISTRIB_FLAG_REVERSE }
 

Functions

static int hwloc_distrib (hwloc_topology_t topology, hwloc_obj_t *roots, unsigned n_roots, hwloc_cpuset_t *set, unsigned n, unsigned until, unsigned long flags)
 

Detailed Description

Enumeration Type Documentation

Flags to be given to hwloc_distrib().

Enumerator
HWLOC_DISTRIB_FLAG_REVERSE 

Distrib in reverse order, starting from the last objects.

Function Documentation

static int hwloc_distrib ( hwloc_topology_t  topology,
hwloc_obj_t roots,
unsigned  n_roots,
hwloc_cpuset_t set,
unsigned  n,
unsigned  until,
unsigned long  flags 
)
inlinestatic

Distribute n items over the topology under roots.

Array set will be filled with n cpusets recursively distributed linearly over the topology under objects roots, down to depth until (which can be INT_MAX to distribute down to the finest level).

n_roots is usually 1 and roots only contains the topology root object so as to distribute over the entire topology.

This is typically useful when an application wants to distribute n threads over a machine, giving each of them as much private cache as possible and keeping them locally in number order.

The caller may typically want to also call hwloc_bitmap_singlify() before binding a thread so that it does not move at all.

flags should be 0 or a OR'ed set of hwloc_distrib_flags_e.

Note
This function requires the roots objects to have a CPU set.
This function replaces the now deprecated hwloc_distribute() and hwloc_distributev() functions.
