core affinity question.

Installed a new 5600 cluster recently and not seeing the expected result in regards to core allocation.  I gave corexl a 2/2 split, but seems like SND/IRQ only has 1 core assigned:

 

fw ctl affinity -l
eth1: CPU 0
eth5: CPU 0
eth2: CPU 0
eth3: CPU 0
eth4: CPU 0
Mgmt: CPU 0
fw_0: CPU 3
fw_1: CPU 2

 

RX-DRP is zero, so i'm not really worried, just wondering.

 

thanks

 

All of my 4800s with a 2/2 split looks correct:

fw ctl affinity -l
eth5: CPU 0
eth1: CPU 1
eth6: CPU 1
eth2: CPU 1
eth7: CPU 1
eth1-01: CPU 0
eth3: CPU 0
eth1-02: CPU 1
Mgmt: CPU 0
eth4: CPU 0
fw_0: CPU 3
fw_1: CPU 2
