You may well want to point them to HWLOC, a BSD licensed
library that lets a program determine hardware locality
information and is cpuset aware so you can work out which
individual cores are available to you.
It's also fairly portable (covers Linux, *NIX, OSX, Windows).
The "lstopo" tool is also very useful for giving you an
idea of the topology of your system..
