[Xen-devel] Question on xenpm
after having upgraded my server from AMD 4050e to X4 640, I now use cpufreq=xen
to adapt a munin script (monitoring tool) to display the residency in the
This script uses /sys/device/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq to read out the
I now use xenpm get-cpufreq-state.
Before I noticed that the CPU is in highest possible P-state (lowest
frequences) nearly all
of the time, and a minimal percentage in the lowest. Now I can see a 50/50
Interesting enough, the xenpm get-cpuidle-state will show that the CPUs are at
in C1 idle state.
Can there be a difference in how the two methods to collect the info are
working? I mean
something like xenpm will not count residency when in C1, but cpufreq driver
