2012-07-19tools/power: turbostat v2 - re-write for efficiencyLen Brown
Measuring large profoundly-idle configurations requires turbostat to be more lightweight. Otherwise, the operation of turbostat itself can interfere with the measurements. This re-write makes turbostat topology aware. Hardware is accessed in "topology order". Redundant hardware accesses are deleted. Redundant output is deleted. Also, output is buffered and local RDTSC use replaces remote MSR access for TSC. From a feature point of view, the output looks different since redundant figures are absent. Also, there are now -c and -p options -- to restrict output to the 1st thread in each core, and the 1st thread in each package, respectively. This is helpful to reduce output on big systems, where more detail than the "-s" system summary is desired. Finally, periodic mode output is now on stdout, not stderr. Turbostat v2 is also slightly more robust in handling run-time CPU online/offline events, as it now checks the actual map of on-line cpus rather than just the total number of on-line cpus.

2012-06-03tools/power turbostat: fix IVB supportLen Brown
Initial IVB support went into turbostat in Linux-3.1: 553575f1ae048aa44682b46b3c51929a0b3ad337 (tools turbostat: recognize and run properly on IVB) However, when running on IVB, turbostat would fail to report the new couters added with SNB, c7, pc2 and pc7. So in scenarios where these counters are non-zero on IVB, turbostat would report erroneous residencey results. In particular c7 time would be added to c1 time, since c1 time is calculated as "that which is left over". Also, turbostat reports MHz capabilities when passed the "-v" option, and it would incorrectly report 133MHz bclk instead of 100MHz bclk for IVB, which would inflate GHz reported with that option. This patch is a backport of a fix already included in turbostat v2. Signed-off-by: Len Brown <len.brown@intel.com>
2012-06-03tools/power turbostat: fix un-intended affinity of forked programLen Brown
Linux 3.4 included a modification to turbostat to lower cross-call overhead by using scheduler affinity: 15aaa34654831e98dd76f7738b6c7f5d05a66430 (tools turbostat: reduce measurement overhead due to IPIs) In the use-case where turbostat forks a child program, that change had the un-intended side-effect of binding the child to the last cpu in the system. This change removed the binding before forking the child. This is a back-port of a fix already included in turbostat v2. Signed-off-by: Len Brown <len.brown@intel.com>
2012-03-29tools turbostat: harden against cpu online/offlineLen Brown
Sometimes users have turbostat running in interval mode when they take processors offline/online. Previously, turbostat would survive, but not gracefully. Tighten up the error checking so turbostat notices changesn sooner, and print just 1 line on change: turbostat: re-initialized with num_cpus %d Signed-off-by: Len Brown <len.brown@intel.com>
2012-03-29tools turbostat: reduce measurement overhead due to IPIsLen Brown
turbostat uses /dev/cpu/*/msr interface to read MSRs. For modern systems, it reads 10 MSR/CPU. This can be observed as 10 "Function Call Interrupts" per CPU per sample added to /proc/interrupts. This overhead is measurable on large idle systems, and as Yoquan Song pointed out, it can even trick cpuidle into thinking the system is busy. Here turbostat re-schedules itself in-turn to each CPU so that its MSR reads will always be local. This replaces the 10 "Function Call Interrupts" with a single "Rescheduling interrupt" per sample per CPU. On an idle 32-CPU system, this shifts some residency from the shallow c1 state to the deeper c7 state: # ./turbostat.old -s %c0 GHz TSC %c1 %c3 %c6 %c7 %pc2 %pc3 %pc6 %pc7 0.27 1.29 2.29 0.95 0.02 0.00 98.77 20.23 0.00 77.41 0.00 0.25 1.24 2.29 0.98 0.02 0.00 98.75 20.34 0.03 77.74 0.00 0.27 1.22 2.29 0.54 0.00 0.00 99.18 20.64 0.00 77.70 0.00 0.26 1.22 2.29 1.22 0.00 0.00 98.52 20.22 0.00 77.74 0.00 0.26 1.38 2.29 0.78 0.02 0.00 98.95 20.51 0.05 77.56 0.00 ^C i# ./turbostat.new -s %c0 GHz TSC %c1 %c3 %c6 %c7 %pc2 %pc3 %pc6 %pc7 0.27 1.20 2.29 0.24 0.01 0.00 99.49 20.58 0.00 78.20 0.00 0.27 1.22 2.29 0.25 0.00 0.00 99.48 20.79 0.00 77.85 0.00 0.27 1.20 2.29 0.25 0.02 0.00 99.46 20.71 0.03 77.89 0.00 0.28 1.26 2.29 0.25 0.01 0.00 99.46 20.89 0.02 77.67 0.00 0.27 1.20 2.29 0.24 0.01 0.00 99.48 20.65 0.00 78.04 0.00 cc: Youquan Song <youquan.song@intel.com> Signed-off-by: Len Brown <len.brown@intel.com>

2011-01-11tools: create power/x86/turbostatLen Brown
turbostat is a Linux tool to observe proper operation of Intel(R) Turbo Boost Technology. turbostat displays the actual processor frequency on x86 processors that include APERF and MPERF MSRs. Note that turbostat is of limited utility on Linux kernels 2.6.29 and older, as acpi_cpufreq cleared APERF/MPERF up through that release. On Intel Core i3/i5/i7 (Nehalem) and newer processors, turbostat also displays residency in idle power saving states, which are necessary for diagnosing any cpuidle issues that may have an effect on turbo-mode. See the turbostat.8 man page for example usage. Signed-off-by: Len Brown <len.brown@intel.com>
