What exactly is a P-state? (Pt. 1)
In some configurations it even is possible to unregister it via sysfs which allows another Pstatr scaling driver to be loaded and registered see below. Like in the performance case, the hardware configuration is not touched if the new P-state turns out to be the same as the current one.
So if you can reduce peak power, you reduce the cost and size of the equipment having to do the cooling. The following sequence of shell commands can be used to enable them and see their output if the kernel is generally configured to support event tracing:.
C3 often known as Sleep is a state where the processor does not need to keep its cache coherentbut maintains other state. This processor state is optional. The meaning of these attributes in the passive mode is the same as for other scaling drivers.

They are not generic scaling governors, but their names are pwtate same as the names of some of those governors. For example, Intel ‘s Haswell platform has states up to C10, where it distinguishes core states and package states.
Sign up using Facebook. If the HWP feature is enabled in the processorthe resulting effective values are written into its registers whenever the limits change in order to request its internal P-state selection logic to always set P-states within these limits.
Whether or not turbo P-states are supported at all. In turn, the P-states below the turbo threshold generally are sustainable.
The way they both operate depends on whether or not the hardware-managed P-states HWP feature has been enabled in the processor and possibly on the processor model. They represent different energy vs performance hints and should be self-explanatory, except that default represents whatever hint value was set by the platform firmware.
The hint can be changed by writing to this attribute. The Linux Intdl 4.

It’s obvious that performance is directly related to frequency. Namely, if that option is set, the performance algorithm will be pstatd by default, and the other one will be used by default if it is not set. Each pstte CPU is affected by its own per-policy limits psttate is, it cannot be requested to run faster than its own per-policy maximum and it cannot be requested to run slower than its own per-policy minimum.
Namely, the Sandy Bridge generation of processors will never use any P-states above the last one set by software for the given core, even if it is within the turbo range, whereas all of the later processor generations will take it as a license to use any P-states from the turbo range, even above the one set by software.

That only is supported in some configurations, though for example, if the HWP feature is enabled in the processorthe operation mode of the driver cannot be changedand if it is not supported in the current configuration, writes to this attribute with fail with an appropriate error.
Can sombody explain the exact difference between these two drivers, such as the different options they have and how they differ ijtel example, in the powersave option? What those hints are depends on which P-state selection algorithm has been applied to the given policy or to the CPU it corresponds to. Psyate often known as Halt is a state where the processor is not executing instructions, but can return to an executing state essentially instantaneously.
Although it often is possible to obtain all of it from the processor itself using model-specific registersthere are cases in which hardware manuals need to be consulted to get to it too. See the frequency half of Figure A below.
