These are some of the tools I use to monitor system performance on Linux. There are a ton of great tools on Windows, but to overclock using Linux here are some of the tools and commands I use.
Please share your tips and tools here for others to learn.
I have a threadripper so looking at frequency is really important when I run my benchmarks. I simply use the watch command to get a live update of the frequency.
watch -n1 “cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep “^[c]pu MHz” | sort -r”
You’ll need lm-sensors for this and you may need to install other drivers to get full output but for the most part I get to see the temperature of each of my dies using this tool.
watch -n 1 sensors
GPU TEMPERATURE (For nVidia):
sudo watch nvidia-smi
- Phoronix – one of the golang test will stress your cpu cores very well, can’t remember if it’s json or something else.
- Cinebench (with Wine – wine from their apt repository – not the default)
