Updated numactl packages that fix multiple bugs and add various enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The numactl packages provide a simple Non-Uniform Memory Access (NUMA) policy support and consist of the numactl program to run other programs with a specific NUMA policy and the libnuma library to do allocations in applications using the NUMA policy.
The numactl packages have been upgraded to upstream version 2.0.7, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version. (BZ#645066)
- Prior to this update, the man page for the numastat tool was not included in the numactl package. This update adds the missing numastat man page to numactl.
All users of numactl are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs and add these enhancements.
