These Design Notes consider the kernel system mechanisms and interfaces appropriate to support process memory placement and cpu scheduling selection. This is the capability to place task scheduling and memory allocation onto specific processors and memory nodes.
This is the third version of these Design Notes. SGI is currently implementing this design as an Open Source patch, which it hopes to have accepted into the main stream kernel (Mosberger's 2.4-based IA kernel and Linux 2.5).
