How do I manage CPU affinity FBO multiple instances of an application in RHEL v5.x?
I am taking over the management and support for a workstation with 4 64-bit AMD dual core opterons with RHEL v5.x OS with all the updates. The user is complaining that when running 2 or more instances of a multi-threaded chemical process application, the same CPUs are being used instead of using other available CPUs that are idle. My task is to allocate through CPU affinity, different application instances to different CPUs. Keeping in mind I'm a novice in Linux, how do I do this? I would appreciate a step by step process due to my lack of Linux experience. Thanks!
