General Commands (Section 1)
cpupower
cpupower is a collection of tools to examine and tune power saving related features of your processor. The manpages of the commands (cpupower-<command>(1))...
cpupower-frequency-info
A small tool which prints out cpufreq information helpful to developers and interested users.
cpupower-frequency-set
cpupower frequency-set allows you to modify cpufreq settings without having to type e.g. "/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_set_speed" all the time.
cpupower-idle-info
A tool which prints out per cpu idle information helpful to developers and interested users.
cpupower-idle-set
The cpupower idle-set subcommand allows to set cpu idle, also called cpu sleep state, specific options offered by the kernel. One example is disabling sleep...
cpupower-info
cpupower info shows kernel configurations or processor hardware registers affecting processor power saving policies. Some options are platform wide, some affect...
cpupower-monitor
cpupower-monitor reports processor topology, frequency and idle power state statistics. Either command is forked and statistics are printed upon its completion...
cpupower-set
cpupower set sets kernel configurations or directly accesses hardware registers affecting processor power saving policies. Some options are platform wide, some...
System Administration (Section 8)
turbostat
turbostat reports processor topology, frequency, idle power-state statistics, temperature and power on X86 processors. There are two ways to invoke turbostat...
x86_energy_perf_policy
x86_energy_perf_policy allows software to convey its policy for the relative importance of performance versus energy savings to the processor. The processor...
