Binding processes to processors
By default, an LWP can execute on any processor in the system.
You can use the
command or the
system call to bind an LWP or a process (all of the associated
LWPs) to a processor.
This restricts the LWPs to execute only on the specified processor.
Once bound, all child processes created by this process or timeout routines
requested by this process are bound by default to the same processor.
The -P option of the
command can be used to display
the processor binding status of all processes in the system.
command can also be used to unbind a process (all the associated
LWPs) or LWP from a processor.
Once unbound, the process or LWP
can execute on any processor in the system.
