Detailed Description
Function Documentation
static inline struct hwloc_distances_s* hwloc_get_distance_matrix_covering_obj_by_depth
(hwloc_topology_ttopology, hwloc_obj_tobj, unsigneddepth, unsigned *firstp) [static],
[read]
Get distances for the given depth and covering some objects. Return a distance matrix that
describes depth depth and covers at least object obj and all its children.
When looking for the distance between some objects, a common ancestor should be passed in
obj.
firstp is set to logical index of the first object described by the matrix.
The returned structure belongs to the hwloc library. The caller should not modify or free
it.
static inline int hwloc_get_latency (hwloc_topology_ttopology, hwloc_obj_tobj1,
hwloc_obj_tobj2, float *latency, float *reverse_latency) [static]
Get the latency in both directions between two objects. Look at ancestor objects from the
bottom to the top until one of them contains a distance matrix that matches the objects
exactly.
latency gets the value from object obj1 to obj2, while reverse_latency gets the reverse
direction value, which may be different on some architectures.
Returns:
1 if no ancestor contains a matching latency matrix.
static inline struct hwloc_distances_s* hwloc_get_whole_distance_matrix_by_depth
(hwloc_topology_ttopology, unsigneddepth) [static], [read]
Get the distances between all objects at the given depth. Returns:
a distances structure containing a matrix with all distances between all objects at
the given depth.
Slot i+nbobjs*j contains the distance from the object of logical index i the object of
logical index j.
Note:
This function only returns matrices covering the whole topology, without any unknown
distance value. Those matrices are available in toplevel object of the hierarchy.
Matrices of lower objects are not reported here since they cover only part of the
machine.
The returned structure belongs to the hwloc library. The caller should not modify or free
it.
Returns:
NULL if no such distance matrix exists.
static inline struct hwloc_distances_s* hwloc_get_whole_distance_matrix_by_type
(hwloc_topology_ttopology, hwloc_obj_type_ttype) [static], [read]
Get the distances between all objects of a given type. Returns:
a distances structure containing a matrix with all distances between all objects of
the given type.
Slot i+nbobjs*j contains the distance from the object of logical index i the object of
logical index j.
Note:
This function only returns matrices covering the whole topology, without any unknown
distance value. Those matrices are available in toplevel object of the hierarchy.
Matrices of lower objects are not reported here since they cover only part of the
machine.
The returned structure belongs to the hwloc library. The caller should not modify or free

Returns:
NULL if no such distance matrix exists.
