./sysutils/estd, Dynamically sets the CPU-frequency on SpeedStep and PowerNow CPUs

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 0.7nb1, Package name: estd-0.7nb1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

The estd daemon dynamically sets the CPU-frequency on SpeedStep-,
PowerNow-, and ACPI P-States-enabled CPUs depending on current cpu-utilization.
It is written for systems running NetBSD or DragonFly.

Examples:

Maximize battery lifetime by limiting CPU-frequency to 1000 MHz and
switching to lower speeds fast:

estd -d -b -M 1000

Maximize performance by running at least at 1400MHz and switching to
higher speeds real fast:

estd -d -a -m 1400

Log message:
Remove example rc.d scripts from PLISTs.

These are now handled dynamically if INIT_SYSTEM is set to "rc.d", or
ignored otherwise.

Log message:
Update to r7 (pkgsrc 0.7). Provided by Johannes Hofmann in private mail.

estd-r7
* Add support for ACPI P-States on DragonFly.
* Improve multi-core support on DragonFly. For each CPU domain with individually
  controllable CPU frequency, the load of the most loaded CPU is used instead of
  the overall avarage load.
  This avoids issues on SMP systems where a single-threaded CPU bound process
  will lead to at most 50% overall load.
* Ove Soerensen has asked me to take over maintainership of estd.

Also mention PowerNow in the COMMENT. But because of length removed \
