NAME

sched_getcpu - determine CPU on which the calling thread is running  

SYNOPSIS

#define _GNU_SOURCE
#include <sched.h>

int sched_getcpu(void);

Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

sched_getcpu(): _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE  

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.  

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;
