Enumeration Type Documentation

enum hwloc_compare_types_e

Enumerator

HWLOC_TYPE_UNORDERED
Value returned by hwloc_compare_types when types can not be compared.

enum hwloc_obj_bridge_type_e

Type of one side (upstream or downstream) of an I/O bridge.

Enumerator

HWLOC_OBJ_BRIDGE_HOST
Host-side of a bridge, only possible upstream.
HWLOC_OBJ_BRIDGE_PCI
PCI-side of a bridge.

enum hwloc_obj_cache_type_e

Cache type.

Enumerator

HWLOC_OBJ_CACHE_UNIFIED
Unified cache.
HWLOC_OBJ_CACHE_DATA
Data cache.
HWLOC_OBJ_CACHE_INSTRUCTION
Instruction cache. Only used when the HWLOC_TOPOLOGY_FLAG_ICACHES topology flag is set.

enum hwloc_obj_osdev_type_e

Type of a OS device.

Enumerator

HWLOC_OBJ_OSDEV_BLOCK
Operating system block device. For instance 'sda' on Linux.
HWLOC_OBJ_OSDEV_GPU
Operating system GPU device. For instance ':0.0' for a GL display, 'card0' for a Linux DRM device.
HWLOC_OBJ_OSDEV_NETWORK
Operating system network device. For instance the 'eth0' interface on Linux.
HWLOC_OBJ_OSDEV_OPENFABRICS
Operating system openfabrics device. For instance the 'mlx4_0' InfiniBand HCA device on Linux.
HWLOC_OBJ_OSDEV_DMA
Operating system dma engine device. For instance the 'dma0chan0' DMA channel on Linux.
HWLOC_OBJ_OSDEV_COPROC
Operating system co-processor device. For instance 'mic0' for a Xeon Phi (MIC) on Linux, 'opencl0d0' for a OpenCL device, 'cuda0' for a CUDA device.

enum hwloc_obj_type_t

Type of topology object.

Note:

Do not rely on the ordering or completeness of the values as new ones may be defined in the future! If you need to compare types, use hwloc_compare_types() instead.

Enumerator

HWLOC_OBJ_SYSTEM
Whole system (may be a cluster of machines). The whole system that is accessible to hwloc. That may comprise several machines in SSI systems like Kerrighed.
HWLOC_OBJ_MACHINE
Machine. The typical root object type. A set of processors and memory with cache coherency.
HWLOC_OBJ_NUMANODE
NUMA node. A set of processors around memory which the processors can directly access.
HWLOC_OBJ_PACKAGE
Physical package, what goes into a socket. In the physical meaning, i.e. that you can add or remove physically.
HWLOC_OBJ_CACHE
Cache. Can be L1i, L1d, L2, L3, ...
HWLOC_OBJ_CORE
Core. A computation unit (may be shared by several logical processors).
HWLOC_OBJ_PU
Processing Unit, or (Logical) Processor. An execution unit (may share a core with some other logical processors, e.g. in the case of an SMT core). Objects of this kind are always reported and can thus be used as fallback when others are not.
HWLOC_OBJ_GROUP
Group objects. Objects which do not fit in the above but are detected by hwloc and are useful to take into account for affinity. For instance, some operating systems expose their arbitrary processors aggregation this way. And hwloc may insert such objects to group NUMA nodes according to their distances. These objects are ignored when they do not bring any structure.
HWLOC_OBJ_MISC
Miscellaneous objects. Objects without particular meaning, that can e.g. be added by the application for its own use, or by hwloc for miscellaneous objects such as MemoryDevice.
HWLOC_OBJ_BRIDGE
Bridge. Any bridge that connects the host or an I/O bus, to another I/O bus. Bridge objects have neither CPU sets nor node sets. They are not added to the topology unless I/O discovery is enabled with hwloc_topology_set_flags().
HWLOC_OBJ_PCI_DEVICE
PCI device. These objects have neither CPU sets nor node sets. They are not added to the topology unless I/O discovery is enabled with hwloc_topology_set_flags().
HWLOC_OBJ_OS_DEVICE
Operating system device. These objects have neither CPU sets nor node sets. They are not added to the topology unless I/O discovery is enabled with hwloc_topology_set_flags().
HWLOC_OBJ_TYPE_MAX
Sentinel value

Function Documentation

int hwloc_compare_types (hwloc_obj_type_t type1, hwloc_obj_type_t type2)

Compare the depth of two object types. Types shouldn't be compared as they are, since newer ones may be added in the future. This function returns less than, equal to, or greater than zero respectively if type1 objects usually include type2 objects, are the same as type2 objects, or are included in type2 objects. If the types can not be compared (because neither is usually contained in the other), HWLOC_TYPE_UNORDERED is returned. Object types containing CPUs can always be compared (usually, a system contains machines which contain nodes which contain packages which contain caches, which contain cores, which contain processors).

Note:

HWLOC_OBJ_PU will always be the deepest.

This does not mean that the actual topology will respect that order: e.g. as of today cores may also contain caches, and packages may also contain nodes. This is thus just to be seen as a fallback comparison method.
