Is there an easy way to be sure about wether the PCI write-combining is
enabled or not for a given memory region?
I'm writting user-level communication software for a Myrinet network. I
use Write PIO and I'm aware that WPIO performance is greatly influencied
by the presence of write combining. Based on the performance I measured
I can only conclude that Write Combining is enabled but I would like to
be sure about it (since I'm planning to publish my research).
Is the default behaviour of the Linux kernel to enable write-combining?
How can I be sure if it is enabled or not?
Thanks in advance.
