Details

An updated numactl package that fixes one bug is now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

The numactl package adds a simple Non-Uniform Memory Access (NUMA) policy
support. It consists of a numactl program to run other programs with a specific
NUMA policy and a libnuma to do allocations with NUMA policy in applications.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Under certain circumstances, having an environment of three numa nodes
resulted in a memory corruption, which had a negative impact on performance.
This problem has been fixed in this update so that the memory corruption does
not occur anymore. (BZ#705309)

All users requiring numactl should upgrade to this updated package, which fixes
this bug.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
