Subject: [OMPI devel] RFC: Add new Solaris sysinfo component
From: Terry Dontje (terry.dontje_at_[hidden])
Date: 2010-08-03 06:59:52

WHAT: Add new Solaris sysinfo component

WHY: To allow OPAL access to chip type and model information when
running on Solaris OS.

WHERE: opal/mca/sysinfo/solaris

WHEN: for 1.5.1

TIMEOUT: Aug 10, 2010



There is a sysinfo framework that has a component for Linux to expose
the chip type and model information to OPAL. This RFC is to propose the
making of a Solaris component to expose the same information. The Linux
component also exposes number of processes and memory amount on a node,
however the first instantiation of the Solaris component will not expose
this information because it will be easier to do such with hwloc (which
has not been integrated to provide such info, yet).
