NAME

       hwloc-dump-hwdata - Dump topology and locality information from hardware tables

SYNOPSIS

       hwloc-dump-hwdata [options]

OPTIONS

       -o <dir>  save output files to directory <dir> instead of the default /var/run/hwloc/ that
                 was specified at configure time.

                 You may want to set the HWLOC_DUMPED_HWDATA_DIR environment variable as well  so
                 that the hwloc library looks for dumped files in that same directory.

DESCRIPTION

       hwloc  may benefit from some locality and topology information from SMBIOS or ACPI tables.
       They are accessible from raw hardware files under directories such  /sys/firmware/dmi/  or
       /sys/firmware/acpi/  on  Linux.  These files are usually only accessible to root, and they
       only exist when there is dmi-sysfs support in the Linux kernel.

       The hwloc-dump-hwdata tool dumps the useful contents of such files into human-readable and
       world-accessible  files.  The intent is to run the tool once during boot and have the main
       (non-privileged) hwloc library gather information from these human-readable files.

       hwloc-dump-hwdata is currently only useful for Intel Xeon Phi processors (Knights  Landing
       and Knights Mill).

       The current list of dumped information is:

       Intel Xeon Phi processor memory, cache and clustering configuration
            gathered  from  specific  SMBIOS  entries  such as /sys/firmware/dmi/entries/14-* and
            /sys/firmware/dmi/entries/160-*, and saved in file knl_memoryside_cache.
