       Specifies  a  buffer  to	 receive the CPU set assigned to the specified
       Resource Affinity Domain (RAD) in the caller's partition	 Points	 to  a
       buffer  to receive information about the specified RAD.	Identifies the
       RAD for which the resource complement is being requested.

       A Resource Affinity Domain (RAD) is a collection of resources that  are
       related by the platform hardware topology. The collection of processors
       and I/O buses connected to a local memory of a NUMA platform, plus  the
       local memory itself, comprise a RAD. More generally, a RAD may be char‐
       acterized as a set of resources that are within some “distance” of each

       The  rad_get_info() function stores in the buffer pointed to by info, a
       rad_info_t structure containing information about the RAD specified  by
       the radid argument. This information includes the state of the RAD, the
       amount of memory in the RAD, and the CPUs it  contains.	The  remaining
       functions  on  this  reference  page  return  individual members of the
       rad_info_t structure.

       The rad_get_cpus() function stores in the buffer	 specified  by	cpuset
       the  set of CPUs in the specified RAD that are assigned to the caller's

       The rad_get_freemem() function returns a snapshot of the amount of free
       memory (pages) in the specified RAD in the caller's partition.

       The  rad_get_max()  function  returns the maximum number of RADs on the

       The rad_get_num() function returns the number of RADs in	 the  caller's

       The  rad_get_physmem()  function	 returns the amount of physical memory
       (pages) assigned to the specified RAD in the caller's partition.

       The rad_get_state() function returns the current state of the RAD spec‐
       ified  by  the  radid  argument. The possible RAD state values are: The
       specified RAD exists and is on  line.  Processes	 and  threads  may  be
       assigned	 to  the RAD and memory may be allocated there.	 The specified
       RAD exists but is not currently on line. Neither processes nor  threads
       may be assigned to this RAD, and no memory may be allocated there. How‐
       ever, the RAD's resource complement may be queried.


	      Currently, RAD state is always  set  to  RAD_ONLINE;  therefore,
	      consider this function as being reserved for future use.

       Note that prior to calling any of the rad_get_*() functions, the appli‐
       cation must set the rinfo_version field in the rad_info_t structure  to
       RAD_INFO_VERSION.  The  CPU  set (cpuset) stored in this structure must
       have been created by the application prior to  the  call.  If  zero  is
       specified  for  cpuset,	the function does not fill in data for the CPU

       As with many queries of system information, the data returned by	 these
       functions  may  be  stale  by the time it is returned to or used by the
       calling application.

       The rad_get_info() and rad_get_cpus() functions	return	the  following
       values:	Success. In this case, the integer value is the number of CPUs
       in the specified RAD.  Failure. In this case, errno is set to  indicate
       the error.

       The  rad_get_freemem()  and rad_get_physmem() functions return the fol‐
       lowing: Success. Depending on the function, this value is the amount of
       free  memory  for  the  specified  RAD or the amount of physical memory
       assigned to the RAD.  Failure. In this case, errno is set  to  indicate
       the error.

       The rad_get_num() and rad_get_max() functions return the number of RADs
       in the caller's partition or on the system, respectively. There	is  no
       value defined to indicate failure for these functions.

       The  rad_get_state() function always returns a state value. There is no
       value defined to indicate failure for this function.

       The    rad_get_cpus(),	 rad_get_info(),    rad_get_freemem(),	   and
       rad_get_physmem()  functions  set  errno to one of the following values
       for the specified condition: The cpuset argument indirectly  points  to
       an  invalid  address, or the specified CPU set does not exist, possibly
       because it was not created by a call to cpusetcreate().	The rad	 argu‐
       ment specifies a RAD that does not exist.  The version number specified
       for the rinfo_version field in the info argument is not	recognized  by
       the system.

       The following example prints data returned by a call to rad_get_info():

       #include <sys/errno.h> #include <numa.h>

       int print_rad_info(radid_t rad) {
	       rad_info_t radinfo;

	       /* Create a cpuset for the radinfo struct. */

	       radinfo.rinfo_version = RAD_INFO_VERSION;

	       /* Fetch the data */
	       if (rad_get_info(rad, &radinfo) == -1) {
		       return -1;

	       /* Simple data types can be printed directly. */
	       printf("rinfo_radid = %d\n", radinfo.rinfo_radid);
	       printf("rinfo_state = %d\n", radinfo.rinfo_state);
	       printf("rinfo_physmem = 0x%lx pages\n", radinfo.rinfo_physmem);
	       printf("rinfo_freemem = 0x%lx pages\n", radinfo.rinfo_freemem);
	       printf("\ncpuset members: ");

	       /* Complex datatypes (cpuset) need to be enumerated. */
	       while (1) {
		       cpuid_t id;
		       int flags = SET_CURSOR_CONSUME;
		       cpu_cursor_t cpu_cursor = SET_CURSOR_INIT;

		       id = cpu_foreach(radinfo.rinfo_cpuset, flags, &cpu_cur‐

		       if (id == CPU_NONE) {
		       } else {
			       printf("%3d ", id);

	       /* Destroy cpuset */

	       return 0; }
