3.3. CPU Monitors

cpupower features a selection of monitors that provide idle and sleep state statistics and frequency information and report on processor topology. Some monitors are processor-specific, while others are compatible with any processor. Refer to the cpupower-monitor man page for details on what each monitor measures and which systems they are compatible with.
Use the following options with the cpupower monitor command:
  • -l — list all monitors available on your system.
  • -m <monitor1>, <monitor2> — display specific monitors. Their identifiers can be found by running -l.
  • command — display the idle statistics and CPU demands of a specific command.
