11.8.2.1 cpuinfo_t

The cpuinfo_t structure defines a CPU. Per the information in Table 11.8, “sched Probe Arguments”, arguments to both the enqueue and dequeue probes include a pointer to a cpuinfo_t. Additionally, the cpuinfo_t that corresponds to the current CPU is pointed to by the curcpu variable.

The definition of the cpuinfo_t structure is as follows:

typedef struct cpuinfo {
  processorid_t cpu_id;      /* CPU identifier */
  psetid_t cpu_pset;         /* not supported */
  chipid_t cpu_chip;         /* chip identifier */
  lgrp_id_t cpu_lgrp;        /* not supported */
  cpuinfo_arch_t *cpu_info;  /* CPU information */
} cpuinfo_t;

cpu_id: Is the processor identifier.

cpu_chip: Is the identifier of the physical chip. Physical chips can contain several CPU cores.

cpu_info: Is a pointer to the cpuinfo_arch_t structure that is associated with the CPU.
