Default Is the work thread sequence match with cpu core sequence?


I was try use p95 to testing my hardware, now I find a interesting thing.

my cpu has cores 0-13(HT disabled in bios), when I testing use 14 threads, each core running a threads.

Usually when work 6 is stopped, then I can see cpu 5 is in low occupied stat.
that means the work threads(1-14) sequence matches core sequence(0-13).

But sometimes when work 6 stopped, I see cpu 6 is in low occupied state, cpu 5 should be in low occupied stat but running in 100%.

So I'm asking, when I saw work thread stopped, should I check the cores follow then work threads swquence, or the CPU running stat

Prime95 uses the hwloc library (you can duckduckgo it) to assign CPU affinities. I do not know how hwlock maps prime95's worker/thread# into physical core numbers on different OSes.
