5.4 Interaction With Processor Sets

A processor set is a subset of the system's processors set aside for exclusive use by specified processes. Processor sets allow the binding of processes to groups of processors, rather than just a single processor. A processor set can be specified using the psrset(1M) utility on Oracle Solaris platforms, or the taskset command on Linux platforms. Processor binding does not currently respect processor sets specified using the taskset command on Linux.
