Get or Set CPU Affinity Mask of the Current Process
mcaffinity retrieves or sets the CPU affinity mask of the
current process, i.e., the set of CPUs the process is allowed to be
run on. (CPU here means logical CPU which can be CPU, core or
specification of the CPUs to lock this process to
(numeric vector) or
mcaffinity can be used to obtain (
affinity = NULL)
or set the CPU affinity mask of the current process. The affinity mask
is a list of integer CPU identifiers (starting from 1) that this
process is allowed to run on. Not all systems provide user access to
the process CPU affinity, in cases where no support is present at all
mcaffinity() will return
NULL. Some systems may take
into account only the number of CPUs present in the mask.
Typically, it is legal to specify larger set than the number of logical CPUs (but at most as many as the OS can handle) and the system will return back the actually present set.
NULL if CPU affinity is not supported by the system or an
integer vector with the set of CPUs in the active affinity mask for
this process (this may be different than
