The Hardware Locality (hwloc) team is pleased to announce the release
(mirrors will update shortly)
hwloc provides command line tools and a C API to obtain the
hierarchical map of key computing elements, such as: NUMA memory
nodes, shared caches, processor sockets, processor cores, and
processor "threads". hwloc also gathers various attributes such as
cache and memory information, and is portable across a variety of
different operating systems and platforms.
hwloc v0.9.3 is a bug fix release. The following is a summary of
changes as compared to v0.9.2:
* Fix autogen.sh to work with Autoconf 2.63.
* Fix various crashes in particular conditions:
- xml files with root attributes
- offline CPUs
- partial sysfs support
- unparseable /proc/cpuinfo
- ignoring NUMA level while Misc level have been generated
* Tweak documentation a bit
* Do not require the pthread library for binding the current thread on
* Do not erroneously consider the sched_setaffinity prototype is the
when there is actually none.
* Fix _syscall3 compilation on archs for which we do not have the
sched_setaffinity system call number.
* Fix AIX binding.
* Fix libraries dependencies: now only lstopo depends on libtermcap, fix
* Have make check always build and run hwloc-hello.c
* Do not limit size of a cpuset.
*** Note that the hwloc project represents the merger of the
libtopology project from INRIA and the Portable Linux Processor
Affinity (PLPA) sub-project from Open MPI. *Both of these prior
projects are now deprecated.*
