Hello I finally merged the new memory model in master (mainly for properly supporting KNL-like heterogeneous memory). This was the main and last big change for hwloc 2.0. I still need to fix some caveats (and lstopo needs to better display NUMA nodes) but that part of the API should be ready.
Now we encourage people to start porting their code to the new hwloc 2.0 API. Here's a guide that should answer most questions about the upgrade: https://github.com/open-mpi/hwloc/wiki/Upgrading-to-v2.0-API The final 2.0 release isn't planned before at least the end of november, but we need to fix API issues before releasing it. So please start testing it and report issues, missing docs, etc. If there's any existing function/feature (either new or old) that needs to be changed, please report it too. We're only breaking the ABI once for 2.0, we cannot break it again 2 months later. Tarballs of git master are already available from https://ci.inria.fr/hwloc/job/master-0-tarball/lastBuild/ and in nightly snapshots on the website starting tomorrow. There are still a couple things that may or may not change before the final 2.0 API. If you have an opinion, please let us know. * (likely) Make all depths *signed* ints: some objects have a negative depth (meaning "special depth", not a normal depth in the main tree). You'll have to cast to (int) whenever you printf a depth while supporting both hwloc 1.x and 2.x. * (likely) Drop obj->allowed_cpuset (and allowed_nodeset) and just keep one for the entire topology: It is very rarely used (only when you set HWLOC_TOPOLOGY_FLAG_WHOLESYSTEM) and can be emulated by doing a binary "and" or "intersects" between obj->cpuset and topology->allowed_cpuset. * (likely) obj->memory becomes obj->attr->numanode since it's only used for numa nodes. But obj->total_memory should remain in obj because it's available in all objects (accumulated memory in all children). * (likely) Remove HWLOC_OBJ_SYSTEM: not used anymore (we don't support multinode topologies anymore). The root is always MACHINE now. I guess we'd #define SYSTEM MACHINE so that you don't have to change your code. * (unlikely) rename some info objects for consistency (examples below). + GPUVendor and PCIVendor and CPUVendor -> Vendor. + GPUModel and PCIDevice and CPUModel -> Model + NVIDIASerial and MICSerialNumber -> SerialNumber But that will make your life harder for looking up attributes while supporting hwloc 1.x and 2.x. And XML import from 1.x would be more expensive since we'd have to rename these. * (unlikely) Share information between osdev (e.g. eth0 or cuda0) and pcidev: Lots of attributes are identical (Vendor, Model, kind of device etc). We could merge those objects into a single generic "I/O object". However a single PCI device can contain multiple OS devices (for instance "mlx5_0"+"ib0", or "cuda0"+"opencl0d0", etc). -- Brice _______________________________________________ hwloc-devel mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.open-mpi.org/mailman/listinfo/hwloc-devel
