[PATCH 3/3] chainlint.pl: latch CPU count directly reported by /proc/cpuinfo

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


From: Eric Sunshine <sunshine@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

On Linux, ncores() computes the number of CPUs by counting the
"processor" or "CPU" lines emitted by /proc/cpuinfo. However, on some
platforms, /proc/cpuinfo does not enumerate the CPUs at all, but
instead merely mentions the total number of CPUs. In such cases, pluck
the CPU count directly from the /proc/cpuinfo line which reports the
number of active CPUs. (In particular, check for "cpus active: NN" and
"ncpus active: NN" since both variants have been seen in the
