Re: AMD cooling utility in debian

If you want to use the kernel policies, look at the files in /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq.
You can see which governors are available:

 $ cat scaling_available_governors
 ondemand userspace performance

Also which governor is currently active:

 $ cat scaling_governor

And of course you can change the active govenor:

 $ echo -n ondemand > scaling_governor
 $ cat scaling_governor

Alternatively, you can use a userspace program like cpufreqd or powernowd to control the frequency. This allows much finer control, based on user-definable rules, battery status, a/c status, time, ...


Thanks for the excellent response I will certainly give this a go.
