Description

High bandwidth memory memkind operations.

memkind_hbw_check_available() returns zero if library was able to detect heterogeneous NUMA node bandwidths. Returns MEMKIND_UNAVAILABLE if the detection mechanism failed. Detection mechanism can be also overridden by the environment variable MEMKIND_HBW_NODES as described in the memkind(3) man page.

memkind_hbw_hugetlb_check_available() In addition to checking for high bandwidth memory as is done by memkind_hbw_check_available (), this also checks for 2MB huge pages as is done by memkind_hugetlb_check_available_2mb().

memkind_hbw_gbtlb_check_available() In addition to checking for high bandwidth memory as is done by memkind_hbw_check_available (), this also checks for 1GB huge pages as is done by memkind_hugetlb_check_available_1gb().

memkind_hbw_get_mbind_nodemask() sets the nodemask bit to one that corresponds to the high bandwidth NUMA node that has the closest NUMA distance to the CPU of the calling process. All other bits up to maxnode are set to zero. The nodemask can be used in conjuction with the mbind(2) system call.

memkind_hbw_all_get_mbind_nodemask() sets the nodemask bits to one that correspond to the all high bandwidth NUMA nodes in the system. All other bits up to maxnode are set to zero. The nodemask can be used in conjuction with the mbind(2) system call.

memkind_hbw_init_once() This function initializes MEMKIND_HBW kind and it should not be called more than once. Note: memkind_hbw_init_once() may reserve some extra memory.

memkind_hbw_hugetlb_init_once() This function initializes MEMKIND_HBW_HUGETLB kind and it should not be called more than once. Note: memkind_hbw_hugetlb_init_once() may reserve some extra memory.

memkind_hbw_preferred_init_once() This function initializes MEMKIND_HBW_PREFERRED kind and it should not be called more than once. Note: memkind_hbw_preferred_init_once() may reserve some extra memory.

memkind_hbw_preferred_hugetlb_init_once() This function initializes MEMKIND_HBW_PREFERRED_HUGETLB kind and it should not be called more than once. Note: memkind_hbw_preferred_hugetlb_init_once() may reserve some extra memory.

memkind_hbw_interleave_init_once() This function initializes MEMKIND_HBW_INTERLEAVE kind and it should not be called more than once. Note: memkind_hbw_interleave_init_once() may reserve some extra memory.
