Subject Re: [PATCH] unbind cpu option for aix
Date Wed, 18 Feb 1998 02:54:29 GMT
AIX is completely broken.  No other SMP os I know of does this.  There is
processor affinity, but it's not so sticky as to live for the entire life
of the process.  Migration should occur by default... most kernels
eventually have primitives added to bind a process to a particular
processor, but by default things usually migrate.
