When I look at /proc/interrupts:
$ cat /proc/interrupts CPU0 CPU1 (...) 12: 4 0 IO-APIC-edge i8042 14: 145 65310875 IO-APIC-edge ide0 50: 0 0 IO-APIC-level uhci_hcd:usb5, Intel ICH7 58: 5388 7983508 IO-APIC-level libata 169: 812427252 1236572641 IO-APIC-level skge, eth1 217: 6 0 IO-APIC-level ehci_hcd:usb1, uhci_hcd:usb2 225: 0 0 IO-APIC-level uhci_hcd:usb3 233: 60 3108720778 IO-APIC-level uhci_hcd:usb4, skge
I can see two skge and one eth1 entries. All of them are the network cards. Because of the general name "skge" (which is the name of the network driver of the card) I can't easily reocognize, which NIC occupies which interrupt.
How to make linux use more descriptive names in the entries?
Or: Is there any alternative way to obtain INT information instead of /proc/interrupt?
My final goal is to manipulate smp_affinities of the NICs.
