KGDB_ROUNDUP_CPUS(9) Kernel Debugger Internals KGDB_ROUNDUP_CPUS(9)NAME
kgdb_roundup_cpus - Get other CPUs into a holding pattern
void kgdb_roundup_cpus(unsigned long flags);
Current IRQ state
On SMP systems, we need to get the attention of the other CPUs and get them into a known state. This should do what is needed to get the
other CPUs to call kgdb_wait. Note that on some arches, the NMI approach is not used for rounding up all the CPUs. For example, in case of
MIPS, smp_call_function is used to roundup CPUs. In this case, we have to make sure that interrupts are enabled before calling
smp_call_function. The argument to this function is the flags that will be used when restoring the interrupts. There is local_irq_save call
On non-SMP systems, this is not called.

chcpu - configure CPUs
chcpu -c|-d|-e|-g cpu-list
chcpu -p mode
chcpu can modify the state of CPUs. It can enable or disable CPUs, scan for new CPUs, change the CPU dispatching mode of the underlying
hypervisor, and request CPUs from the hypervisor (configure) or return CPUs to the hypervisor (deconfigure).
Some options have a cpu-list argument. Use this argument to specify a comma-separated list of CPUs. The list can contain individual CPU
addresses or ranges of addresses. For example, 0,5,7,9-11 makes the command applicable to the CPUs with the addresses 0, 5, 7, 9, 10, and
OPTIONS -c, --configure cpu-list
Configure the specified CPUs. Configuring a CPU means that the hypervisor takes a CPU from the CPU pool and assigns it to the vir-
tual hardware on which your kernel runs.
-d, --disable cpu-list
Disable the specified CPUs. Disabling a CPU means that the kernel sets it offline.
-e, --enable cpu-list
Enable the specified CPUs. Enabling a CPU means that the kernel sets it online. A CPU must be configured, see -c, before it can be
-g, --deconfigure cpu-list
Deconfigure the specified CPUs. Deconfiguring a CPU means that the hypervisor removes the CPU from the virtual hardware on which
the Linux instance runs and returns it to the CPU pool. A CPU must be offline, see -d, before it can be deconfigured.
-p, --dispatch mode
Set the CPU dispatching mode (polarization). This option has an effect only if your hardware architecture and hypervisor support
CPU polarization. Available modes are:
horizontal The workload is spread across all available CPUs.
vertical The workload is concentrated on few CPUs.
Trigger a rescan of CPUs. After a rescan, the Linux kernel recognizes the new CPUs. Use this option on systems that do not auto-
matically detect newly attached CPUs.
Display version information and exit.
Display help text and exit.
chcpu has the following return codes:
64 partial success
