hwloc-annotate - Add info attributes to a XML topology SYNOPSIS
hwloc-annotate [options] <input.xml> <output.xml> <location> <mode> <annotation> OPTIONS
--ci Clear the existing info attributes in the target objects before annotating. If no new annotation has to be added after clearing, mode should be set to none. DESCRIPTION
hwloc-annotate loads a topology from a XML file, adds some annotations, and export the resulting topology to another XML file. The input and output files may be the same. The annotation may be string info attributes. This is specified by the mode: info <name> <value> Specifies a new string info attribute whose name is name and value is value. none No new annotation is added. This is useful when clearing existing attributes. Annotations may be added to one specific object in the topology, all of them, or all of a given type. This is specified by the location: all annotates all objects in the topology. root annotates the root object of the topology. <type>:all annotates all objects of the given type. <type>:<index> annotates the object of the given type and index. The index is logical. NOTE: The existing annotations may be listed with hwloc-info. NOTE: It is highly recommended that you read the hwloc(7) overview page before reading this man page. Most of the concepts described in hwloc(7) directly apply to the hwloc-annotate utility. EXAMPLES
hwloc-annotate's operation is best described through several examples. Add an info attribute to all Core objects: $ hwloc-annotate input.xml output.xml Core:all infoname infovalue Add an info attribute to the root object of the topology and modify the input XML directly: $ hwloc-annotate file.xml file.xml root infoname infovalue RETURN VALUE
Upon successful execution, hwloc-annotate generates the output topology. The return value is 0. hwloc-annotate will return nonzero if any kind of error occurs, such as (but not limited to) failure to parse the command line. SEE ALSO

hwloc-gather-topology - Saves the relevant Linux topology files and the lstopo output for later (possibly offline) usage. SYNOPSIS
hwloc-gather-topology [options] <path> OPTIONS
-h --help display help message and exit DESCRIPTION
hwloc-gather-topology saves all the relevant topology files into an archive (<path>.tar.bz2) and the lstopo output (<path>.output). The utility for example stores the /proc/cpuinfo file and the entire /sys/devices/system/node/ directory tree. These files can be used later to explore the machine topology offline. Once the tarball has been extracted, it may for instance be given to some hwloc command-line utilities through their --input option. It is also possible to override the default topology that the hwloc library will read by setting the extracted path in the HWLOC_FSROOT environment variable. Both archive and lstopo output may also be submitted to hwloc developers to debug issues remotely. hwloc-gather-topology is a Linux specific tool, it is not installed on other operating systems. NOTE: It is highly recommended that you read the hwloc(7) overview page before reading this man page. EXAMPLES
To store topology information to be used later (possibly on a different host) please run: hwloc-gather-topology /tmp/myhost It will store all relevant topology files in the /tmp/myhost.tar.bz2 archive and the lstopo output in the /tmp/myhost.output file. These files can be transferred on another host for later/offline analysis and/or as the input to various hwloc utilities. To use these data with hwloc utilities you have to unpack myhost.tar.bz2 archive first: tar jxvf /tmp/myhost.tar.bz2 A new directory named myhost now contains all topology files. Then you ask various hwloc utilities to use this topology instead of the one of the real machine by passing --input myhost. To display the topology just run: lstopo --input ./myhost It is not necessary that the topology is extracted in the current directory, absolute or relative paths are also supported: lstopo --input /path/to/remote/host/extracted/topology/ To see how hwloc would distribute 8 parallel jobs on the original host: hwloc-distrib --input myhost --single 8 To get the corresponding physical indexes in the previous command: hwloc-calc --input myhost --po --li --proclist $(hwloc-distrib --input myhost --single 8) Any program may actually override the default topology with a given archived one even if it does not have a --input option. The HWLOC_FSROOT environment variable should be used to do so: HWLOC_FSROOT=myhost hwloc-calc --po --li --proclist $(hwloc-distrib --single 8) All these commands will produce the same output as if executed directly on the host on which the topology information was originally gath- ered by the hwloc-gather-topology script. RETURN VALUE
Upon successful execution, hwloc-gather-topology will exit with the code 0. hwloc-gather-topology will return nonzero exit status if any kind of error occurs, such as (but not limited to) failure to create the ar- chive or output file. SEE ALSO
