Synopsis

#include <sched.h>

int sched_getcpu(void);

Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

sched_getcpu():

Since glibc 2.14:
_GNU_SOURCE
Before glibc 2.14:
_BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE
/* _GNU_SOURCE also suffices */

Description

sched_getcpu() returns the number of the CPU on which the calling thread is currently executing.

Return Value

On success, sched_getcpu() returns a nonnegative CPU number. On error, -1 is returned and errno is set to indicate the error.

Errors

sched_getcpu() is glibc-specific.

Notes

The call

cpu = sched_getcpu();

is equivalent to the following getcpu(2) call:

int c, s;
s = getcpu(&c, NULL, NULL);
cpu = (s == -1) ? s : c;
