For current AMD CPUs, the appropriate driver is the ACPI driver. K6, K7, and K8 CPUs have specific drivers, but K10 and later are handled by the “generic” ACPI driver. There is additional support for frequency sensitivity feedback on Jaguar/Puma and later low-power CPUs, available in the amd-freq-sensitivity module. The kernel contains documentation on its ...


A more explicit way of phrasing this is “average frequency at which the TSC incremented over the entire interval”. The TSC counts CPU cycles: it increments every time the CPU clock ticks. This happens regardless of what the computer is doing. Frequency variations reflect the varying clock rate: typically, if the CPU is idle, it is slowed down, and if it’s ...


lscpu | grep "^CPU(" | awk '{print $2}' This gets you the number of your CPU cores.


In this context, "threads" is a synonym for "logical cores", i.e. total amount of logical cores, regardless of how many physical cores implement them. Not extra threads. Your CPU has 6 logical cores, so booting Linux on it "sees" 6 CPUs. Your CPU has 6 physical cores, so each logical core has a whole physical core to itself, rather than having a pair of ...


If you look at other processors e.g. i7-10710u from Intel then this shows as 6 cores and 12 threads, so it appears that your cpu only has one thread per core rather than the 2 you are expecting.


If you scroll down on your CPU’s Ark page, you’ll see that it says Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology ‡ No Your CPU has six cores, but it doesn’t support hyper-threading, so your htop display is correct. The CPU specifications on Ark show the full thread count, there’s no addition or multiplication involved; see for example the Xeon E3-1245v3 for a hyper-...


Hackers often replace tools like top, ps and the like with 'versions' that do not show the hacker's traces and processes. Try to use different tools to find the rogue processes. And obviously try to re-install the ps, top and other utilities.


I doubt a canonical answer to this question exists, but just to have my say. After an interesting hour or so reading, the conclusion has to be that these specific benchmarks don't do much apart from tell you how fast your hardware can execute these specific routines on the target machine's FPU and CPU respectively. Just take a look around, two interesting ...


top uses ncurses interactively, so the output stream is full of cursor movements. However, it has a -b (batch) option that prints the data every time-interval. So you could parse that with awk. If you don't need all the processes (which it does because it does not have a window size in -b mode) there are options to tailor almost all the outputs. And it does ...
