Add distances between objects

Synopsis

Typedefs

typedef void * hwloc_distances_add_handle_t

Enumerations

enum hwloc_distances_add_flag_e { HWLOC_DISTANCES_ADD_FLAG_GROUP, HWLOC_DISTANCES_ADD_FLAG_GROUP_INACCURATE }

Functions

hwloc_distances_add_handle_t hwloc_distances_add_create (hwloc_topology_t topology, const char *name, unsigned long kind, unsigned long flags)
int hwloc_distances_add_values (hwloc_topology_t topology, hwloc_distances_add_handle_t handle, unsigned nbobjs, hwloc_obj_t *objs, hwloc_uint64_t *values, unsigned long flags)
int hwloc_distances_add_commit (hwloc_topology_t topology, hwloc_distances_add_handle_t handle, unsigned long flags)

Detailed Description

The usual way to add distances is:

hwloc_distances_add_handle_t handle;
int err = -1;
handle = hwloc_distances_add_create(topology, "name", kind, 0);
if (handle) {
  err = hwloc_distances_add_values(topology, handle, nbobjs, objs, values, 0);
  if (!err)
    err = hwloc_distances_add_commit(topology, handle, flags);
}

If err is 0 at the end, then addition was successful.

Typedef Documentation

typedef void* hwloc_distances_add_handle_t

Handle to a new distances structure during its addition to the topology.

Enumeration Type Documentation

enum hwloc_distances_add_flag_e

Flags for adding a new distances to a topology.

Enumerator

HWLOC_DISTANCES_ADD_FLAG_GROUP

Try to group objects based on the newly provided distance information. This is ignored for distances between objects of different types.

HWLOC_DISTANCES_ADD_FLAG_GROUP_INACCURATE

If grouping, consider the distance values as inaccurate and relax the comparisons during the grouping algorithms. The actual accuracy may be modified through the HWLOC_GROUPING_ACCURACY environment variable (see Environment Variables).

Function Documentation

int hwloc_distances_add_commit (hwloc_topology_t topology, hwloc_distances_add_handle_t handle, unsigned long flags)

Commit a new distances structure. This function finalizes the distances structure and inserts in it the topology.

Parameter handle was previously returned by hwloc_distances_add_create(). Then objects and values were specified with hwloc_distances_add_values().

flags configures the behavior of the function using an optional OR'ed set of hwloc_distances_add_flag_e. It may be used to request the grouping of existing objects based on distances.

On error, the temporary distances structure and its content are destroyed.

Returns

0 on success.

-1 on error.

hwloc_distances_add_handle_t hwloc_distances_add_create (hwloc_topology_t topology, const char * name, unsigned long kind, unsigned long flags)

Create a new empty distances structure. Create an empty distances structure to be filled with hwloc_distances_add_values() and then committed with hwloc_distances_add_commit().

Parameter name is optional, it may be NULL. Otherwise, it will be copied internally and may later be freed by the caller.

kind specifies the kind of distance as a OR'ed set of hwloc_distances_kind_e. Kind HWLOC_DISTANCES_KIND_HETEROGENEOUS_TYPES will be automatically set according to objects having different types in hwloc_distances_add_values().

flags must be 0 for now.

Returns

A hwloc_distances_add_handle_t that should then be passed to hwloc_distances_add_values() and hwloc_distances_add_commit().

NULL on error.

int hwloc_distances_add_values (hwloc_topology_t topology, hwloc_distances_add_handle_t handle, unsigned nbobjs, hwloc_obj_t * objs, hwloc_uint64_t * values, unsigned long flags)

Specify the objects and values in a new empty distances structure. Specify the objects and values for a new distances structure that was returned as a handle by hwloc_distances_add_create(). The structure must then be committed with hwloc_distances_add_commit().

The number of objects is nbobjs and the array of objects is objs. Distance values are stored as a one-dimension array in values. The distance from object i to object j is in slot i*nbobjs+j.

nbobjs must be at least 2.

Arrays objs and values will be copied internally, they may later be freed by the caller.

On error, the temporary distances structure and its content are destroyed.

flags must be 0 for now.

Returns

0 on success.

-1 on error.
