Performance-Monitoring Counters Library, for Intel/AMD Processors and Linux
This example introduces
   rabbit command-line option -mhz n

Return to Main Menu


Command-Line Options -mhz n n million cycles/sec, default 800 (or as configured during installation)
Example 'rabbit -mhz 0' will make a runtime determination of the MHz rating for the current system; this takes about 5 seconds, and uses a list of known (and probable future) Intel processor speeds. For positive n, the case 'rabbit -mhz -n' will take the same action in about n seconds, while 'rabbit -mhz n' is accepted blindly.
Notes The correct MHz rating is required to translate processor cycles to seconds. The default value is reported by 'rabbit -I | grep mhz'. We assume you are not overclocking your system at some strange rate.
