NAME

numa_getaffinity, numa_setaffinity — manage NUMA affinity

LIBRARY

Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS

#include <sys/param.h> #include <sys/numa.h> int numa_getaffinity(cpuwhich_t which, id_t id, struct vm_domain_policy_entry *policy); int numa_setaffinity(cpuwhich_t which, id_t id, const struct vm_domain_policy_entry *policy);

DESCRIPTION

numa_getaffinity() and numa_setaffinity() allow the manipulation of NUMA policies available to processes and threads. These functions may manipulate NUMA policies that contain many processes or affect only a single object. Valid values for the which argument are documented in cpuset(2). These arguments specify which object set are used. Only CPU_WHICH_TID and CPU_WHICH_PID can be manipulated. The policy entry contains a vm_domain_policy_entry with the following fields: struct vm_domain_policy_entry { vm_domain_policy_type_t policy; /* VM policy */ int domain; /* VM domain, if applicable */ } vm_domain_policy_type_t policy is one these: VM_POLICY_NONE Reset the domain back to none. Any parent object NUMA domain policy will apply. The only valid value for domain is -1. VM_POLICY_ROUND_ROBIN Select round-robin policy. Pages will be allocated round-robin from each VM domain in order. The only valid value for domain is -1. VM_POLICY_FIXED_DOMAIN Select fixed-domain only policy. Pages will be allocated from the given domain which must be set to a valid VM domain. Pages will not be allocated from another domain if domain is out of free pages. VM_POLICY_FIXED_DOMAIN_ROUND_ROBIN Select fixed-domain only policy. Pages will be allocated from domain which must be set to a valid VM domain. If page allocation fails, pages will be round-robin allocated from another domain if domain is out of free pages. VM_POLICY_FIRST_TOUCH Select first-touch policy. Pages will be allocated from the NUMA domain which the thread is currently scheduled upon. Pages will not be allocated from another domain if the current domain is out of free pages. The only valid value for domain is -1. VM_POLICY_FIRST_TOUCH_ROUND_ROBIN Select first-touch policy. Pages will be allocated from the NUMA domain which the thread is currently scheduled upon. Pages will be allocated round-robin from another domain if the current domain is out of free pages. The only valid value for domain is -1. Note that the VM might assign some pages from other domains. For example, if an existing page allocation is covered by a superpage allocation. numa_getaffinity() retrieves the NUMA policy from the object specified by which and id and stores it in the space provided by policy. numa_setaffinity() attempts to set the NUMA policy for the object specified by which and id to the policy in policy.

RETURN VALUES

Upon successful completion, the value 0 is returned; otherwise the value -1 is returned and the global variable errno is set to indicate the error.

ERRORS

errno can contain these error codes: [EINVAL] The level or which argument was not a valid value. [EINVAL] The policy argument specified when calling numa_setaffinity() did not contain a valid policy. [EFAULT] The policy pointer passed was invalid. [ESRCH] The object specified by the id and which arguments could not be found. [ERANGE] The domain in the given policy was out of the range of possible VM domains available. [EPERM] The calling process did not have the credentials required to complete the operation.
