hwloc (Hardware Locality) 2.7.0rc1 is now available for download.
https://www.open-mpi.org/software/hwloc/v2.7/ v2.7.0 arrives surprisingly early (less than 2 months after v2.6.0) because several important changes did not deserve to wait: * Better topology discovery on large machines running Windows 11 or Server 2022. * Improvements to Windows CMake support. * Improved oneAPI Level0 support. Hopefully we will release the final 2.7.0 before christmas. The following is a summary of the changes since v2.6.0. Version 2.7.0 ------------- * Backends + Add support for NUMA nodes and caches with more than 64 PUs across multiple processor groups on Windows 11 and Windows Server 2022. + Group objects are not created for Windows processor groups anymore, except if HWLOC_WINDOWS_PROCESSOR_GROUP_OBJS=1 in the environment. + Expose "Cluster" group objects on Linux kernel 5.16+ for CPUs that share some internal cache or bus. This can be equivalent to the L2 Cache level on some platforms (e.g. x86) or a specific level between L2 and L3 on others (e.g. ARM Kungpeng 920). Thanks to Jonathan Cameron for the help. - HWLOC_DONT_MERGE_CLUSTER_GROUPS=1 may be set in the environment to prevent these groups from being merged with identical caches, etc. + Improve the oneAPI LevelZero backend: - Expose subdevices such as "ze0.1" inside root OS devices ("ze0") when the hardware contains multiple subdevices. - Add many new attributes to describe device type, and the numbers of slices, subslices, execution units and threads. - Expose the memory information as LevelZeroHBM/DDR/MemorySize infos. + Ignore the max frequencies of cores in Linux cpukinds when the base frequencies are available (to avoid exposing hybrid CPUs when Intel Turbo Boost Max 3.0 gives slightly different max frequencies to CPU cores). - May be reverted by setting HWLOC_CPUKINDS_MAXFREQ=1 in the environment. * Tools + Add --grey and --palette options to switch lstopo to greyscale or white-background-only graphics, or to tune individual colors. * Build + Windows CMake builds now support non-MSVC compilers, detect several features at build time, can build/run tests, etc. Thanks to Michael Hirsch and Alexander Neumann . -- Brice
