cpuclock - adjust CPU clock and monitor CPU power draw and temperature

DESCRIPTION
   Cpuclock is a utility program to adjust the max. CPU clock speed and
   monitor the effect on CPU power draw and temperature. Start or stop a
   synthetic 90% load on all CPU core processors. Adjust the max. allowed
   CPU clock speed and observe the impact on power and temperature.
   A small reduction in clock speed can have a large impact on power and
   temperature.

USAGE
   Terminal command: $ sudo cpuclock
   This starts an interactive window for both input and output data.
   Press the [help] button to see detailed usage instructions.
   'sudo' is required to change the CPU clock speed.

LIMITATIONS
   Cpuclock reads the output of the programs listed below. 'powerstat'
   output is formatted for humans, not computers. Format changes may
   cause cpuclock to fail. Cpuclock may also fail for non-Intel or older
   Intel processors, or for some flavors of Linux where powerstat and
   cpupower are not available.

SEE ALSO
   powerstat, cpupower
