Description shylesh 2017-11-03 07:14:51 UTC
Description of problem:
Setting "ms_async_affinitiy_cores" doesn't make worker threads to bind to cores.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.I have set the following ms_async config in conf file.

ms async set affinity=true

If above syntax is correct then all the async worker threads should be bound to core 1-4,
but something different is happening.

Here is the output "top -H -p  <pid>". last field is the core.

affinity parameter is not obeyed.

This is on a cpu with 12 cores.

Am I missing something very basic.
