I'm looking for functionality similar to "cpuset" but for FreeBSD 5.3. I want to lock a given process to a specific core or specific cores. I wouldn't be opposed to minor patching/kernel tweaking/rebuilding/whatever if needed. Just not sure what the available options are. Thank for any input on this.
You can't expect 'minor kernel patching' when the kernel source code is two major versions behind the one that first featured (the entire family of system calls associated with) [man=2]cpuset[/man] (7.1).
