Yes. Thanks. I'll put this in either RFC v7 or Patch v1. For spreading path, things are much easier, though packing path is quite tricky. But It seems RFC v6 has been quite close to what we want to achieve to pack related tasks by scanning cluster for tasks within same NUMA: https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20210420001844.9116-1-song.bao....@hisilicon.com/ If couples have been already in same LLC(numa), scanning clusters will gather them further. If they are running in different NUMA nodes, the original scanning LLC will move them to the same node, after that, scanning cluster might put them closer to each other. it seems it is kind of the two-level packing Dietmar has suggested. So perhaps we won't have RFC v7, I will probably send patch v1 afterwards. > > Thanks. > > Tim > > --- > > diff --git a/arch/x86/include/asm/topology.h > b/arch/x86/include/asm/topology.h > index 800fa48c9fcd..2548d824f103 100644 > --- a/arch/x86/include/asm/topology.h > +++ b/arch/x86/include/asm/topology.h > @@ -109,6 +109,7 @@ extern const struct cpumask *cpu_clustergroup_mask(int > cpu); > #define topology_physical_package_id(cpu) (cpu_data(cpu).phys_proc_id) > #define topology_logical_die_id(cpu) (cpu_data(cpu).logical_die_id) > #define topology_die_id(cpu) (cpu_data(cpu).cpu_die_id) > +#define topology_cluster_id(cpu) (per_cpu(cpu_l2c_id, cpu)) > #define topology_core_id(cpu) > (cpu_data(cpu).cpu_core_id) > > extern unsigned int __max_die_per_package; Thanks Barry
