performance measurement for Pentium CPU

performance measurement for Pentium CPU

Post by Karl He » Thu, 29 Jun 1995 04:00:00



I have made a Linux kernel patch which adds the ability to measure the
performance of Pentium CPU. This patch should work with the kernel versions
1.2.8 to 1.2.10. There will be a new file 'cpuperf' in the 'proc' filesystem
(like 'cpuinfo'). Using the Pentium MSR, you could measure CPI, DOP, cache hit
rate,...
The patch can be found at the ftp server 'ftp.uni-kl.de'. The path for
documentation und patch files is 'pub/linux/Kernel/patches'.

Try it and let me know
