Cpu Scheduling problem

Hi guys,
i have a system with 12 cpu.
When i start my application it assign a cpu0.
The problem is that if i start another istance of my application, the sistem assign the cpu0 although it have idle 0% with other cpu with 100% idle.
Is it correct ?
Can i change it ?
Is it a kernel parameter or patch for Cpu scheduling ?
many point at all good response

Re: Cpu Scheduling problem

Shalom,

This depends how the application is written.

If its single threaded and uses one CPU at a time there is nothing you can do save re-write the application.

This is not a problem with the OS as much as probably a problem with the application code.

Re: Cpu Scheduling problem

The application is multi-thread .
I launch several process .
This process go in processor 0 and then fork a process that go in other processor.

Are you talking about threads?

>then fork a process that go in other processor.

Are you talking about processes now, or pthread_create

>Can I change it?

Why do you think there is a problem? How are you determining which CPU? You should be using glance not top.

If i start another qoloader it start to CPU number 0 although cpu 0 was in 0% IDLE. Why?
Why this process not start in a cpu with 100%IDLE?

I would simply ignore what top(1) is telling you as inaccurate. If you can run glance, you can trust that.
(That's assuming that goloader isn't doing tricky stuff like processor sets or using PRM.)
