Hi Daniel,

Have a look at ...
There's tons of information here that should answer most of your

To see what cpu a process is running, you can use top... By default, the
"Last Used CPU" field may not be showing - simply hit "f" then "y" to
enable that field and voila! (note that the commands may be slightly
different depending on your version of top)...

As for the where a process' memory is coming from, I don't know how to do
that, but am certainly interested in hearing the answer... :)

[suse-amd64] cpu affinity with NUMA
kernels - 'runon' like command?

I have two Opteron clusters - one SLES8 based - the other Suse9.
Both are running a 2.4.21 kernel with numa enabled.

Are there any commands available to launch a process onto a given cpu (or
set of cpus) within an SMP ?

and likewise to check:
which cpus a process in on? (cf /proc/12345/cpu)
where it's memory is coming from? (cf say /proc/buddyinfo)
