HWLOC_DECLSPEC int hwloc_linux_parse_cpumap_file (FILE *file, hwloc_cpuset_t set)
HWLOC_DECLSPEC int hwloc_linux_set_tid_cpubind (hwloc_topology_t topology, pid_t tid, hwloc_const_cpuset_t set)
HWLOC_DECLSPEC int hwloc_linux_get_tid_cpubind (hwloc_topology_t topology, pid_t tid, hwloc_cpuset_t set)

Detailed Description

This includes helpers for manipulating Linux kernel cpumap files, and hwloc equivalents of the Linux sched_setaffinity and sched_getaffinity system calls.

Function Documentation

HWLOC_DECLSPEC int hwloc_linux_get_tid_cpubind ( hwloc_topology_t  topology,
pid_t  tid,
hwloc_cpuset_t  set 

Get the current binding of thread tid.

The behavior is exactly the same as the Linux sched_getaffinity system call, but uses a hwloc cpuset.

HWLOC_DECLSPEC int hwloc_linux_parse_cpumap_file ( FILE *  file,
hwloc_cpuset_t  set 

Convert a linux kernel cpumap file file into hwloc CPU set.

Might be used when reading CPU set from sysfs attributes such as topology and caches for processors, or local_cpus for devices.

HWLOC_DECLSPEC int hwloc_linux_set_tid_cpubind ( hwloc_topology_t  topology,
pid_t  tid,
hwloc_const_cpuset_t  set 

Bind a thread tid on cpus given in cpuset set.

The behavior is exactly the same as the Linux sched_setaffinity system call, but uses a hwloc cpuset.
