sched_getcpu (3)

NAME

sched_getcpu - determine CPU on which the calling thread is running

SYNOPSIS

#include <sched.h>
int sched_getcpu(void);

Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):
sched_getcpu():
Since glibc 2.14:
_GNU_SOURCE
Before glibc 2.14:
_BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE
/* _GNU_SOURCE also suffices */

DESCRIPTION

sched_getcpu() returns the number of the CPU on which the calling thread is currently executing.

RETURN VALUE

On success, sched_getcpu() returns a nonnegative CPU number. On error, -1 is returned and errno is set to indicate the error.

ERRORS

ENOSYS
This kernel does not implement getcpu(2).

VERSIONS

This function is available since glibc 2.6.

ATTRIBUTES

CONFORMING TO

sched_getcpu() is glibc-specific.

NOTES

The call

cpu = sched_getcpu();

is equivalent to the following getcpu(2) call:

int c, s;
s = getcpu(&c, NULL, NULL);
cpu = (s == -1) ? s : c;
