./parallel/hwloc, Portable Hardware Locality

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.11.7, Package name: hwloc-1.11.7, Maintainer: asau

The Portable Hardware Locality (hwloc) software package provides
a portable abstraction (across OS, versions, architectures, ...)
of the hierarchical topology of modern architectures, including
NUMA memory nodes, sockets, shared caches, cores and
simultaneous multithreading. It also gathers various system
attributes such as cache and memory information as well as the
locality of I/O devices such as network interfaces, InfiniBand
HCAs or GPUs. It primarily aims at helping applications with
gathering information about modern computing hardware so as to
exploit it accordingly and efficiently.

    (MCDRAM) together through "Cluster" groups so that the local MCDRAM is
    easy to find.
    - See "How do I find the local MCDRAM NUMA node on Intel Knights
      Landing Xeon Phi?" in the documentation.
    - For uniformity across all KNL configurations, always have a NUMA node
      object even if the host is UMA.
  + Fix the detection of the memory-side cache:
    - Add the hwloc-dump-hwdata superuser utility to dump SMBIOS information
      into /var/run/hwloc/ as root during boot, and load this dumped
      information from the hwloc library at runtime.
    - See "Why do I need hwloc-dump-hwdata for caches on Intel Knights
      Landing Xeon Phi?" in the documentation.
  Thanks to Grzegorz Andrejczuk for the patches and for the help.
* The x86 and linux backends may now be combined for discovering CPUs
  through x86 CPUID and memory from the Linux kernel.
  This is useful for working around buggy CPU information reported by Linux
  (for instance the AMD Bulldozer/Piledriver bug below).
  Combination is enabled by passing HWLOC_COMPONENTS=x86 in the environment.
* Fix L3 cache sharing on AMD Opteron 63xx (Piledriver) and 62xx (Bulldozer)
  in the x86 backend. Thanks to many users who helped.
* Fix the overzealous L3 cache sharing fix added to the x86 backend in 1.11.1
  for AMD Opteron 61xx (Magny-Cours) processors.
* The x86 backend may now add the info attribute Inclusive=0 or 1 to caches
  it discovers, or to caches discovered by other backends earlier.
  Thanks to Guillaume Beauchamp for the patch.
* Fix the management on alloc_membind() allocation failures on AIX, HP-UX
  and OSF/Tru64.
* Fix spurious failures to load with ENOMEM on AIX in case of Misc objects
  below PUs.
* lstopo improvements in X11 and Windows graphical mode:
  + Add + - f 1 shortcuts to manually zoom-in, zoom-out, reset the scale,
    or fit the entire window.
  + Display all keyboard shortcuts in the console.
* Debug messages may be disabled at runtime by passing HWLOC_DEBUG_VERBOSE=0
  in the environment when --enable-debug was passed to configure.

    on some node, it should use HWLOC_MEMBIND_BIND.
    Thanks to Nicolas Bouzat for reporting the issue.
  + Add a "Miscellaneous objects" section in the documentation.
  + Add a FAQ entry "What happens to my topology if I disable symmetric
    multithreading, hyper-threading, etc. ?" to the documentation.

Version 1.10.1
--------------
* Actually remove disallowed NUMA nodes from nodesets when the whole-system
  flag isn't enabled.

  Thanks to Dave Love for reporting the issue.
* Fix some misordering of children when merging with ignore_keep_structure()
  in partially allowed topologies.
* Fix an overzealous assertion in the debug code when running on a single-PU
  host with I/O. Thanks to Thomas Van Doren for reporting the issue.
* Don't forget to setup NUMA node object nodesets in x86 backend (for BSDs)
  and OSF/Tru64 backend.
* Fix cpuid-x86 build error with gcc -O3 on x86-32. Thanks to Thomas Van Doren
  for reporting the issue.
* Fix support for future very large caches in the x86 backend.

  Erik Schnetter for helping debugging.
* Fix hwloc_bitmap_isincluded() in case of infinite sets.
* Change hwloc-ls.desktop into a lstopo.desktop and only install it if
  lstopo is built with Cairo/X11 support. It cannot work with a non-graphical
  lstopo or hwloc-ls.
* Add support for the renaming of Socket into Package in future releases.
* Add support for the replacement of HWLOC_OBJ_NODE with HWLOC_OBJ_NUMANODE
  in future releases.
* Clarify the documentation of distance matrices in hwloc.h and in the manpage
  of the hwloc-distances. Thanks to Dave Love for the suggestion.
* Improve some error messages by displaying more information about the
  hwloc library in use.
* Document how to deal with the ABI break when upgrading to the upcoming 2.0
  See "How do I handle ABI breaks and API upgrades ?" in the FAQ.

Version 1.10.0
--------------
* API
  + Add hwloc_topology_export_synthetic() to export a topology to a
    synthetic string without using lstopo. See the Synthetic topologies
    section in the documentation.
  + Add hwloc_topology_set/get_userdata() to let the application save
    a private pointer in the topology whenever it needs a way to find
    its own object corresponding to a topology.
  + Add hwloc_get_numanode_obj_by_os_index() and document that this function
    as well as hwloc_get_pu_obj_by_os_index() are good at converting
    nodesets and cpusets into objects.
  + hwloc_distrib() does not ignore any objects anymore when there are
    too many of them. They get merged with others instead.
    Thanks to Tim Creech for reporting the issue.
* Tools
  + hwloc-bind --get <command-line> now executes the command after displaying
    the binding instead of ignoring the command entirely.
    Thanks to John Donners for the suggestion.
  + Clarify that memory sizes shown in lstopo are local by default
    unless specified (total memory added in the root object).
* Synthetic topologies
  + Synthetic topology descriptions may now specify attributes such as
    memory sizes and OS indexes. See the Synthetic topologies section
    in the documentation.
  + lstopo now exports in this fully-detailed format by default.
    The new option --export-synthetic-flags may be used to revert
    back the old format.
* Documentation

* Misc
  + Work around buggy Linux kernels reporting 2 sockets instead
    1 socket with 2 NUMA nodes for each Xeon E5 v3 (Haswell) processor.
  + pciutils/libpci support is now removed since libpciaccess works
    well and there's also a Linux-specific PCI backend. For the record,
    pciutils was GPL and therefore disabled by default since v1.6.2.
  + Add --disable-cpuid configure flag to work around buggy processor
    simulators reporting invalid CPUID information.
    Thanks for Andrew Friedley for reporting the issue.
  + Fix a racy use of libltdl when manipulating multiple topologies in
    different threads.
    Thanks to Andra Hugo for reporting the issue and testing patches.
  + Fix some build failures in private/misc.h.
    Thanks to Pavan Balaji and Ralph Castain for the reports.
  + Fix failures to detect X11/Xutil.h on some Solaris platforms.
    Thanks to Siegmar Gross for reporting the failure.
  + The plugin ABI has changed, this release will not load plugins
    built against previous hwloc releases.

Version 1.9.1
-------------
* Fix a crash when the PCI locality is invalid. Attach to the root object
  instead. Thanks to Nicolas Denoyelle for reporting the issue.
* Fix -f in lstopo manpage. Thanks to Jirka Hladky for reporting the issue.
* Fix hwloc_obj_type_sscanf() and others when strncasecmp() is not properly
  available. Thanks to Nick Papior Andersen for reporting the problem.
* Mark Linux file descriptors as close-on-exec to avoid leaks on exec.
* Fix some minor memory leaks.

Version 1.9.0
-------------
* API
  + Add hwloc_obj_type_sscanf() to extend hwloc_obj_type_of_string() with
    type-specific attributes such as Cache/Group depth and Cache type.
    hwloc_obj_type_of_string() is moved to hwloc/deprecated.h.
  + Add hwloc_linux_get_tid_last_cpu_location() for retrieving the
    last CPU where a Linux thread given by TID ran.
  + Add hwloc_distrib() to extend the old hwloc_distribute[v]() functions.
    hwloc_distribute[v]() is moved to hwloc/deprecated.h.
  + Don't mix total and local memory when displaying verbose object attributes
    with hwloc_obj_attr_snprintf() or in lstopo.
* Backends
  + Add CPUVendor, CPUModelNumber and CPUFamilyNumber info attributes for
    x86, ia64 and Xeon Phi sockets on Linux, to extend the x86-specific
    support added in v1.8.1. Requested by Ralph Castain.
  + Add many CPU- and Platform-related info attributes on ARM and POWER
    platforms, in the Machine and Socket objects.
  + Add CUDA info attributes describing the number of multiprocessors and
    cores and the size of the global, shared and L2 cache memories in CUDA
    OS devices.
  + Add OpenCL info attributes describing the number of compute units and
    the global memory size in OpenCL OS devices.
  + The synthetic backend now accepts extended types such as L2Cache, L1i or
    Group3. lstopo also exports synthetic strings using these extended types.
* Tools
  + lstopo
    - Do not overwrite output files by default anymore.
      Pass -f or --force to enforce it.
    - Display OpenCL, CUDA and Xeon Phi numbers of cores and memory sizes
      in the graphical output.
    - Fix export to stdout when specifying a Cairo-based output type
      with --of.
  + hwloc-ps
    - Add -e or --get-last-cpu-location to report where processes/threads
      run instead of where they are bound.
    - Report locations as likely-more-useful objects such as Cores or Sockets
      instead of Caches when possible.
  + hwloc-bind
    - Fix failure on Windows when not using --pid.
    - Add -e as a synonym to --get-last-cpu-location.
  + hwloc-distrib
    - Add --reverse to distribute using last objects first and singlify
      into last bits first. Thanks to Jirka Hladky for the suggestion.
  + hwloc-info
    - Report unified caches when looking for data or instruction cache
      ancestor objects.
* Misc
  + Add experimental Visual Studio support under contrib/windows.
    Thanks to Eloi Gaudry for his help and for providing the first draft.
  + Fix some overzealous assertions and warnings about the ordering of
    objects on a level with respect to cpusets. The ordering is only
    guaranteed for complete cpusets (based on the first bit in sets).
  + Fix some memory leaks when importing xml diffs and when exporting a
    "too complex" entry.

Version 1.8.1
-------------
* Fix the cpuid code on Windows 64bits so that the x86 backend gets
  enabled as expected and can populate CPU information.
  Thanks to Robin Scher for reporting the problem.
* Add CPUVendor/CPUModelNumber/CPUFamilyNumber attributes when running
  on x86 architecture. Thanks to Ralph Castain for the suggestion.
* Work around buggy BIOS reporting duplicate NUMA nodes on Linux.
  Thanks to Jeff Becker for reporting the problem and testing the patch.
* Add a name to the lstopo graphical window. Thanks to Michael Prokop
  for reporting the issue.

Version 1.8.0
-------------
* New components
  + Add the "linuxpci" component that always works on Linux even when
    libpciaccess and libpci aren't available (and even with a modified
    file-system root). By default the old "pci" component runs first
    because "linuxpci" lacks device names (obj->name is always NULL).
* API
  + Add the topology difference API in hwloc/diff.h for manipulating
    many similar topologies.
  + Add hwloc_topology_dup() for duplicating an entire topology.
  + hwloc.h and hwloc/helper.h have been reorganized to clarify the
    documentation sections. The actual inline code has moved out of hwloc.h
    into the new hwloc/inlines.h.
  + Deprecated functions are now in hwloc/deprecated.h, and not in the
    official documentation anymore.
* Tools
  + Add hwloc-diff and hwloc-patch tools together with the new diff API.
  + Add hwloc-compress-dir to (de)compress an entire directory of XML files
    using hwloc-diff and hwloc-patch.
  + Object colors in the graphical output of lstopo may be changed by adding
    a "lstopoStyle" info attribute. See CUSTOM COLORS in the lstopo(1) \ 
manpage
    for details. Thanks to Jirka Hladky for discussing the idea.
  + hwloc-gather-topology may now gather I/O-related files on Linux when
    --io is given. Only the linuxpci component supports discovering I/O
    objects from these extended tarballs.
  + hwloc-annotate now supports --ri to remove/replace info attributes with
    a given name.
  + hwloc-info supports "root" and "all" special locations \ 
for dumping
    information about the root object.
  + lstopo now supports --append-legend to append custom lines of text
    to the legend in the graphical output. Thanks to Jirka Hladky for
    discussing the idea.
  + hwloc-calc and friends have a more robust parsing of locations given
    on the command-line and they report useful error messages about it.
  + Add --whole-system to hwloc-bind, hwloc-calc, hwloc-distances and
    hwloc-distrib, and add --restrict to hwloc-bind for uniformity among
    tools.
* Misc
  + Calling hwloc_topology_load() or hwloc_topology_set_*() on an already
    loaded topology now returns an error (deprecated since release 1.6.1).
  + Fix the initialisation of cpusets and nodesets in Group objects added
    when inserting PCI hostbridges.
  + Never merge Group objects that were added explicitly by the user with
    hwloc_custom_insert_group_object_by_parent().
  + Add a sanity check during dynamic plugin loading to prevent some
    crashes when hwloc is dynamically loaded by another plugin mechanisms.
  + Add --with-hwloc-plugins-path to specify the install/load directories
    of plugins.
