API call to get processor architecture

Issue

As part of my app I’m using the NDK and was wondering if it’s worth bundling x86 and mips binaries alongside the standard ARM binaries.

I figured the best way would be to track what my users actually have, is there an API call to grab the processor architecture so I can pass this back to my Google analytics instance?

Thanks

Solution

Actually, you can get the architecture without the need for reflexion at all:

String arch = System.getProperty("os.arch");

From my tests it returned armv71 and i686.

EDIT:

On MIPS architecture, it either returns ‘mips’ or ‘mips64’

On 64 bit ARM/Intel, it returns ‘aarch64’ or ‘x86_64’ respectively.
