* tools: turbostat: style updatesLen Brown2011-02-101-100/+96
| | | | | | | | | | | Follow kernel coding style traditions more closely. Delete typedef, re-name "per cpu counters" to simply be counters etc. This patch changes no functionality. Suggested-by: Thiago Farina <tfransosi@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Len Brown <len.brown@intel.com>

turbostat is a Linux tool to observe proper operation of Intel(R) Turbo Boost Technology. turbostat displays the actual processor frequency on x86 processors that include APERF and MPERF MSRs. Note that turbostat is of limited utility on Linux kernels 2.6.29 and older, as acpi_cpufreq cleared APERF/MPERF up through that release. On Intel Core i3/i5/i7 (Nehalem) and newer processors, turbostat also displays residency in idle power saving states, which are necessary for diagnosing any cpuidle issues that may have an effect on turbo-mode. See the turbostat.8 man page for example usage. Signed-off-by: Len Brown <len.brown@intel.com>
