|Summary||0000232: The thread pinning code in the parallel runtime doesn't work on older Linux systems.|
There are two alternatives for the thread pinning code in Mercury's Parallel low-level C runtime. hwloc() and sched_setaffinity(). When libhwloc is not available sched_setaffinity will be used. Later versions of glibc provide several
macros to manipulate bitsets for use with sched_setaffinity, some or all of these macros may be unavailable on some systems. Currently mercury expects all the macros to be available whenever sched_setaffinity is available - which is not the case on older versions of glibc (such as on RHEL 5).
Furthermore, Non-linux OSs that support sched_setaffinity may also have problems.
To work-around this issue install libhwloc.
