Detailed Description

Structure of a topology object.

Applications must not modify any field except hwloc_obj.userdata.

Field Documentation

unsigned hwloc_obj::arity

Number of normal children. Memory, Misc and I/O children are not listed here but rather in their dedicated children list.

union hwloc_obj_attr_u* hwloc_obj::attr

Object type-specific Attributes, may be NULL if no attribute value was found.

struct hwloc_obj** hwloc_obj::children

Normal children, children[0 .. arity -1].

hwloc_cpuset_t hwloc_obj::complete_cpuset

The complete CPU set of logical processors of this object,. This may include not only the same as the cpuset field, but also some CPUs for which topology information is unknown or incomplete, some offlines CPUs, and the CPUs that are ignored when the HWLOC_TOPOLOGY_FLAG_INCLUDE_DISALLOWED flag is not set. Thus no corresponding PU object may be found in the topology, because the precise position is undefined. It is however known that it would be somewhere under this object.

Note:

Its value must not be changed, hwloc_bitmap_dup() must be used instead.

hwloc_nodeset_t hwloc_obj::complete_nodeset

The complete NUMA node set of this object,. This may include not only the same as the nodeset field, but also some NUMA nodes for which topology information is unknown or incomplete, some offlines nodes, and the nodes that are ignored when the HWLOC_TOPOLOGY_FLAG_INCLUDE_DISALLOWED flag is not set. Thus no corresponding NUMA node object may be found in the topology, because the precise position is undefined. It is however known that it would be somewhere under this object.

If there are no NUMA nodes in the machine, all the memory is close to this object, so only the first bit is set in complete_nodeset.

Note:

Its value must not be changed, hwloc_bitmap_dup() must be used instead.

hwloc_cpuset_t hwloc_obj::cpuset

CPUs covered by this object. This is the set of CPUs for which there are PU objects in the topology under this object, i.e. which are known to be physically contained in this object and known how (the children path between this object and the PU objects).

If the HWLOC_TOPOLOGY_FLAG_INCLUDE_DISALLOWED configuration flag is set, some of these CPUs may not be allowed for binding, see hwloc_topology_get_allowed_cpuset().

Note:

All objects have non-NULL CPU and node sets except Misc and I/O objects.

Its value must not be changed, hwloc_bitmap_dup() must be used instead.

int hwloc_obj::depth

Vertical index in the hierarchy. For normal objects, this is the depth of the horizontal level that contains this object and its cousins of the same type. If the topology is symmetric, this is equal to the parent depth plus one, and also equal to the number of parent/child links from the root object to here.

For special objects (NUMA nodes, I/O and Misc) that are not in the main tree, this is a special negative value that corresponds to their dedicated level, see hwloc_get_type_depth() and hwloc_get_type_depth_e. Those special values can be passed to hwloc functions such hwloc_get_nbobjs_by_depth() as usual.

struct hwloc_obj* hwloc_obj::first_child

First normal child.

hwloc_uint64_t hwloc_obj::gp_index

Global persistent index. Generated by hwloc, unique across the topology (contrary to os_index) and persistent across topology changes (contrary to logical_index). Mostly used internally, but could also be used by application to identify objects.

struct hwloc_info_s* hwloc_obj::infos

Array of stringified info type=name.

unsigned hwloc_obj::infos_count

Size of infos array.

unsigned hwloc_obj::io_arity

Number of I/O children. These children are listed in io_first_child.

struct hwloc_obj* hwloc_obj::io_first_child

First I/O child. Bridges, PCI and OS devices are listed here (io_arity and io_first_child) instead of in the normal children list. See also hwloc_obj_type_is_io().

struct hwloc_obj* hwloc_obj::last_child

Last normal child.

unsigned hwloc_obj::logical_index

Horizontal index in the whole list of similar objects, hence guaranteed unique across the entire machine. Could be a 'cousin_rank' since it's the rank within the 'cousin' list below Note that this index may change when restricting the topology or when inserting a group.

unsigned hwloc_obj::memory_arity

Number of Memory children. These children are listed in memory_first_child.

struct hwloc_obj* hwloc_obj::memory_first_child

First Memory child. NUMA nodes and Memory-side caches are listed here (memory_arity and memory_first_child) instead of in the normal children list. See also hwloc_obj_type_is_memory(). A memory hierarchy starts from a normal CPU-side object (e.g. Package) and ends with NUMA nodes as leaves. There might exist some memory-side caches between them in the middle of the memory subtree.

unsigned hwloc_obj::misc_arity

Number of Misc children. These children are listed in misc_first_child.

struct hwloc_obj* hwloc_obj::misc_first_child

First Misc child. Misc objects are listed here (misc_arity and misc_first_child) instead of in the normal children list.

char* hwloc_obj::name

Object-specific name if any. Mostly used for identifying OS devices and Misc objects where a name string is more useful than numerical indexes.

struct hwloc_obj* hwloc_obj::next_cousin

Next object of same type and depth.

struct hwloc_obj* hwloc_obj::next_sibling

Next object below the same parent (inside the same list of children).

hwloc_nodeset_t hwloc_obj::nodeset

NUMA nodes covered by this object or containing this object. This is the set of NUMA nodes for which there are NUMA node objects in the topology under or above this object, i.e. which are known to be physically contained in this object or containing it and known how (the children path between this object and the NUMA node objects).

In the end, these nodes are those that are close to the current object.

If the HWLOC_TOPOLOGY_FLAG_INCLUDE_DISALLOWED configuration flag is set, some of these nodes may not be allowed for allocation, see hwloc_topology_get_allowed_nodeset().

If there are no NUMA nodes in the machine, all the memory is close to this object, so only the first bit may be set in nodeset.

Note:

All objects have non-NULL CPU and node sets except Misc and I/O objects.

Its value must not be changed, hwloc_bitmap_dup() must be used instead.

unsigned hwloc_obj::os_index

OS-provided physical index number. It is not guaranteed unique across the entire machine, except for PUs and NUMA nodes. Set to HWLOC_UNKNOWN_INDEX if unknown or irrelevant for this object.

struct hwloc_obj* hwloc_obj::parent

Parent, NULL if root (Machine object)

struct hwloc_obj* hwloc_obj::prev_cousin

Previous object of same type and depth.

struct hwloc_obj* hwloc_obj::prev_sibling

Previous object below the same parent (inside the same list of children).

unsigned hwloc_obj::sibling_rank

Index in parent's children[] array. Or the index in parent's Memory, I/O or Misc children list.

char* hwloc_obj::subtype

Subtype string to better describe the type field.

int hwloc_obj::symmetric_subtree

Set if the subtree of normal objects below this object is symmetric, which means all normal children and their children have identical subtrees. Memory, I/O and Misc children are ignored.

If set in the topology root object, lstopo may export the topology as a synthetic string.

hwloc_uint64_t hwloc_obj::total_memory

Total memory (in bytes) in NUMA nodes below this object.

hwloc_obj_type_t hwloc_obj::type

Type of object.

void* hwloc_obj::userdata

Application-given private data pointer, initialized to NULL, use it as you wish. See hwloc_topology_set_userdata_export_callback() in hwloc/export.h if you wish to export this field to XML.
