Title
(EN) Support of non-trivial scheduling policies along with topological properties
Abstract
(EN)

A system includes a topology monitoring unit to generate a topology map of a machine where the machine includes node boards in host computers. The topology map is indicative of interconnections of resources of the machine. The topology monitoring unit queries the machine to identify elements of the machine, stores all the elements of the machine in a string array, generates a key for each element as an array of integers where each integer in the array represents an offset into the string array, and generates the topology map of the machine using the generated keys.
