SubjectRe: system call for finding the number of cpus??
Hello Priya,

The portable way to determine the number of cpus _online_ is:

if [ -x /usr/bin/getconf ] ; then
numprocs=$(/usr/bin/getconf _NPROCESSORS_ONLN)
if [ $numprocs -eq 0 ]; then
numprocs=1
fi
else
numprocs=1
fi

at least that is the number I usually pass to "make -j$numprocs" when
compiling large software projects.

Regards,
Tigran

But I would like to implement it using a system call rather than use the environment variables?? I couldn't find a system call for linux that would give me the result. Could anyone please let me know if there is one for redhat linux??
