The NdisGroupMaxProcessorCount function determines the maximum number of processors in a specified processor group.
A USHORT value that identifies a processor group in the local computer system.
NdisGroupMaxProcessorCount returns a ULONG value for the maximum number of processors that are included in the group that is specified in the Group parameter. The number of processors is a zero-based value.
If the Group parameter is ALL_PROCESSOR_GROUPS, NdisGroupMaxProcessorCount returns the maximum number of processors in the local computer.
An NDIS driver might call the NdisGroupMaxProcessorCount function during initialization before it allocates resources.
Note NDIS 6.20 and later drivers should not use the NdisSystemProcessorCount function because it only returns the processor count for processor group 0.
The processor count can change at runtime on SKUs that support hot-add functionality for CPUs. To obtain an active processor count, call the NdisGroupActiveProcessorCount function.
|Supported in NDIS 6.20 and later.|
