HWLOC-GATHER-TOPOLOGY(1)		      hwloc			 HWLOC-GATHER-TOPOLOGY(1)

NAME
       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  --sin-
       gle 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  gathered  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 archive or output file.
