sched_getcpu(3) Library Functions Manual sched_getcpu(3)

sched_getcpu - determine CPU on which the calling thread is running

Standard C library (libc, -lc)

#include <sched.h>
int sched_getcpu(void);
Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):


    Since glibc 2.14:
    Before glibc 2.14:
            /* _GNU_SOURCE also suffices */

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

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

This kernel does not implement getcpu(2).

For an explanation of the terms used in this section, see attributes(7).

glibc 2.6.

The call

cpu = sched_getcpu();

is equivalent to the following getcpu(2) call:

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