CPU Burn - Linux x86

Installation

aptitude install cpuburn

For optimal result, remove CPU frequency scalling by choosing performance governor. Set this command on all cores.

echo "ondemand" > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor
echo "ondemand" > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/cpufreq/scaling_governor

Run burnP6 command on all cores

burnP6&
burnP6& ...

Check CPU frequency
Displays CPU package frequency :

cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep MHz

Displays real frequency :

cpufreq

Check that CPU is not idle
