Detailed Description

The hwloc_bitmap_t type represents a set of integers (positive or null). A bitmap may be of infinite size (all bits are set after some point). A bitmap may even be full if all bits are set.

Bitmaps are used by hwloc for sets of OS processors (which may actually be hardware threads) as by hwloc_cpuset_t (a typedef for hwloc_bitmap_t), or sets of NUMA memory nodes as hwloc_nodeset_t (also a typedef for hwloc_bitmap_t). Those are used for cpuset and nodeset fields in the hwloc_obj structure, see Object Sets (hwloc_cpuset_t and hwloc_nodeset_t).

Both CPU and node sets are always indexed by OS physical number. However users should usually not build CPU and node sets manually (e.g. with hwloc_bitmap_set()). One should rather use existing object sets and combine them with hwloc_bitmap_or(), etc. For instance, binding the current thread on a pair of cores may be performed with:

hwloc_obj_t core1 = ... , core2 = ... ;
hwloc_bitmap_or(set, core1->cpuset, core2->cpuset);
Note
Most functions below return an int that may be negative in case of error. The usual error case would be an internal failure to realloc/extend the storage of the bitmap (errno would be set to ENOMEM).
Several examples of using the bitmap API are available under the doc/examples/ directory in the source tree. Regression tests such as tests/hwloc/hwloc_bitmap*.c also make intensive use of this API.

Macro Definition Documentation

◆ hwloc_bitmap_foreach_begin

#define hwloc_bitmap_foreach_begin (   id,
  bitmap 
)

Loop macro iterating on bitmap bitmap.

The loop must start with hwloc_bitmap_foreach_begin() and end with hwloc_bitmap_foreach_end() followed by a terminating ';'.

index is the loop variable; it should be an unsigned int. The first iteration will set index to the lowest index in the bitmap. Successive iterations will iterate through, in order, all remaining indexes set in the bitmap. To be specific: each iteration will return a value for index such that hwloc_bitmap_isset(bitmap, index) is true.

The assert prevents the loop from being infinite if the bitmap is infinitely set.

◆ hwloc_bitmap_foreach_end

#define hwloc_bitmap_foreach_end ( )

End of loop macro iterating on a bitmap.

Needs a terminating ';'.

Typedef Documentation

◆ hwloc_bitmap_t

Set of bits represented as an opaque pointer to an internal bitmap.

◆ hwloc_const_bitmap_t

typedef const struct hwloc_bitmap_s* hwloc_const_bitmap_t

Function Documentation

◆ hwloc_bitmap_allbut()

int hwloc_bitmap_allbut ( hwloc_bitmap_t  bitmap,
unsigned  id 
)

Fill the bitmap and clear the index id.

◆ hwloc_bitmap_alloc()

hwloc_bitmap_t hwloc_bitmap_alloc ( void  )

Allocate a new empty bitmap.

Returns
A valid bitmap or NULL.

The bitmap should be freed by a corresponding call to hwloc_bitmap_free().

◆ hwloc_bitmap_alloc_full()

hwloc_bitmap_t hwloc_bitmap_alloc_full ( void  )

Allocate a new full bitmap.

◆ hwloc_bitmap_and()

int hwloc_bitmap_and ( hwloc_bitmap_t  res,
hwloc_const_bitmap_t  bitmap1,
hwloc_const_bitmap_t  bitmap2 
)

And bitmaps bitmap1 and bitmap2 and store the result in bitmap res.

res can be the same as bitmap1 or bitmap2

◆ hwloc_bitmap_andnot()

int hwloc_bitmap_andnot ( hwloc_bitmap_t  res,
hwloc_const_bitmap_t  bitmap1,
hwloc_const_bitmap_t  bitmap2 
)

And bitmap bitmap1 and the negation of bitmap2 and store the result in bitmap res.

res can be the same as bitmap1 or bitmap2

◆ hwloc_bitmap_asprintf()

int hwloc_bitmap_asprintf ( char **  strp,
hwloc_const_bitmap_t  bitmap 
)

Stringify a bitmap into a newly allocated string.

Returns
-1 on error.

◆ hwloc_bitmap_clr()

int hwloc_bitmap_clr ( hwloc_bitmap_t  bitmap,
unsigned  id 
)

Remove index id from bitmap bitmap.

◆ hwloc_bitmap_clr_range()

int hwloc_bitmap_clr_range ( hwloc_bitmap_t  bitmap,
unsigned  begin,
int  end 
)

Remove indexes from begin to end in bitmap bitmap.

If end is -1, the range is infinite.

◆ hwloc_bitmap_compare()

int hwloc_bitmap_compare ( hwloc_const_bitmap_t  bitmap1,
hwloc_const_bitmap_t  bitmap2 
)

Compare bitmaps bitmap1 and bitmap2 in lexicographic order.

Lexicographic comparison of bitmaps, starting for their highest indexes. Compare last indexes first, then second, etc. The empty bitmap is considered lower than anything.

Returns
-1 if bitmap1 is considered smaller than bitmap2.
1 if bitmap1 is considered larger than bitmap2.
0 if bitmaps are equal (contrary to hwloc_bitmap_compare_first()).

For instance comparing binary bitmaps 0011 and 0110 returns -1 (hence 0011 is considered smaller than 0110). Comparing 00101 and 01010 returns -1 too.

Note
This is different from the non-existing hwloc_bitmap_compare_last() which would only compare the highest index of each bitmap.

◆ hwloc_bitmap_compare_first()

int hwloc_bitmap_compare_first ( hwloc_const_bitmap_t  bitmap1,
hwloc_const_bitmap_t  bitmap2 
)

Compare bitmaps bitmap1 and bitmap2 using their lowest index.

A bitmap is considered smaller if its least significant bit is smaller. The empty bitmap is considered higher than anything (because its least significant bit does not exist).

Returns
-1 if bitmap1 is considered smaller than bitmap2.
1 if bitmap1 is considered larger than bitmap2.

For instance comparing binary bitmaps 0011 and 0110 returns -1 (hence 0011 is considered smaller than 0110) because least significant bit of 0011 (0001) is smaller than least significant bit of 0110 (0010). Comparing 01001 and 00110 would also return -1 for the same reason.

Returns
0 if bitmaps are considered equal, even if they are not strictly equal. They just need to have the same least significant bit. For instance, comparing binary bitmaps 0010 and 0110 returns 0 because they have the same least significant bit.

◆ hwloc_bitmap_copy()

int hwloc_bitmap_copy ( hwloc_bitmap_t  dst,
hwloc_const_bitmap_t  src 
)

◆ hwloc_bitmap_fill()

void hwloc_bitmap_fill ( hwloc_bitmap_t  bitmap)

Fill bitmap bitmap with all possible indexes (even if those objects don't exist or are otherwise unavailable)

◆ hwloc_bitmap_first()

◆ hwloc_bitmap_singlify()

int hwloc_bitmap_singlify ( hwloc_bitmap_t  bitmap)

Keep a single index among those set in bitmap bitmap.

May be useful before binding so that the process does not have a chance of migrating between multiple logical CPUs in the original mask. Instead of running the task on any PU inside the given CPU set, the operating system scheduler will be forced to run it on a single of these PUs. It avoids a migration overhead and cache-line ping-pongs between PUs.

Note
This function is NOT meant to distribute multiple processes within a single CPU set. It always return the same single bit when called multiple times on the same input set. hwloc_distrib() may be used for generating CPU sets to distribute multiple tasks below a single multi-PU object.
This function cannot be applied to an object set directly. It should be applied to a copy (which may be obtained with hwloc_bitmap_dup()).

◆ hwloc_bitmap_snprintf()

int hwloc_bitmap_snprintf ( char *restrict  buf,
size_t  buflen,
hwloc_const_bitmap_t  bitmap 
)

Returns
the number of character that were actually written if not truncating, or that would have been written (not including the ending \0).

◆ hwloc_bitmap_sscanf()

int hwloc_bitmap_sscanf ( hwloc_bitmap_t  bitmap,
const char *restrict  string 
)

Parse a bitmap string and stores it in bitmap bitmap.

◆ hwloc_bitmap_taskset_asprintf()

int hwloc_bitmap_taskset_asprintf ( char **  strp,
hwloc_const_bitmap_t  bitmap 
)

Stringify a bitmap into a newly allocated taskset-specific string.

int hwloc_bitmap_taskset_snprintf ( char *restrict  buf,
size_t  buflen,
hwloc_const_bitmap_t  bitmap 
)

The taskset command manipulates bitmap strings that contain a single (possible very long) hexadecimal number starting with 0x.

If buflen is 0, buf may safely be NULL.

Returns
the number of character that were actually written if not truncating, or that would have been written (not including the ending \0).
