I'm looking for a linux tool similar to a cpuid dumper but with a capability to read all of a processor's possible model-specific registers's and outputting them. Does such a tool exist? I'm hoping to get the dump so I can parse the dump to look for whatever CPU features I'd be interested in. Please let me know if I'm asking in the wrong forum.

  • What's MSR in this context? – Gilles Oct 24 '16 at 23:31
  • Model specific register: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Model-specific_register . Hope this is what you mean. – Cosi Oct 24 '16 at 23:36

    Do you want to dump all the MSR contents or to list CPU features? Those are different questions. You can find a list of CPU features in /proc/cpuinfo, but I don't know how much that tells you about MSR contents (it should at least tell you which MSR are available). – Gilles Oct 25 '16 at 12:17
