Detailed Description

Each object type is either Normal (i.e. hwloc_obj_type_is_normal() returns 1), or Memory (i.e. hwloc_obj_type_is_memory() returns 1) or I/O (i.e. hwloc_obj_type_is_io() returns 1) or Misc (i.e. equal to HWLOC_OBJ_MISC). It cannot be of more than one of these kinds.

Function Documentation

◆ hwloc_obj_type_is_cache()

int hwloc_obj_type_is_cache ( hwloc_obj_type_t  type)

Check whether an object type is a Cache (Data, Unified or Instruction).

Returns
1 if an object of type type is a Cache, 0 otherwise.

◆ hwloc_obj_type_is_dcache()

int hwloc_obj_type_is_dcache ( hwloc_obj_type_t  type)

Check whether an object type is a Data or Unified Cache.

Returns
1 if an object of type type is a Data or Unified Cache, 0 otherwise.

◆ hwloc_obj_type_is_icache()

int hwloc_obj_type_is_icache ( hwloc_obj_type_t  type)

Check whether an object type is a Instruction Cache,.

Returns
1 if an object of type type is a Instruction Cache, 0 otherwise.

◆ hwloc_obj_type_is_io()

int hwloc_obj_type_is_io ( hwloc_obj_type_t  type)

Check whether an object type is Memory.

Memory objects are objects attached to their parents in the Memory children list. This current only includes NUMA nodes.

Returns
1 if an object of type type is a Memory object, 0 otherwise.

◆ hwloc_obj_type_is_memory()

int hwloc_obj_type_is_memory ( hwloc_obj_type_t  type)

Check whether an object type is I/O.

I/O objects are objects attached to their parents in the I/O children list. This current includes Bridges, PCI and OS devices.

Returns
1 if an object of type type is a I/O object, 0 otherwise.

◆ hwloc_obj_type_is_normal()

int hwloc_obj_type_is_normal ( hwloc_obj_type_t  type)

Check whether an object type is Normal.

Normal objects are objects of the main CPU hierarchy (Machine, Package, Core, PU, CPU caches, etc.), but they are not NUMA nodes, I/O devices or Misc objects.

They are attached to parent as Normal children, not as Memory, I/O or Misc children.

Returns
1 if an object of type type is a Normal object, 0 otherwise.
