Can someone tell me if it's possible to assign a certain task to a certain
processor and keep it there (lock it)?
There is a C++ code that runs on my dual processor system (with
hyperthreading). 4 processors are seen by Linux. When one instance of
the code runs, everything is fine. When 2 instances, it is also ok. But
when 3 or 4 instances of the code run simultaneously, they crash my
machine. I think this is a scheduling issue. I have seen these processes
jump to a different processor in the midst of execution. This could be a
problem, if two processes collide.
What do you think is the best way to deal with such an issue? I only have
this happen with the C++ code. When I ran 4 simultaneous instances of C
code for 7 hours, the system remained stable.
Thanks in advance!
