The Value of the Linux Thermal Daemon Project

Thermal issues are important to handle proactively to reduce performance impact.

The project provides a Linux user mode daemon to system developers, reducing time to market with controlled thermal management using P-states, T-states, and the Intel power clamp driver. The Thermal Daemon uses the existing Linux kernel infrastructure and can be easily enhanced.

Who It’s For

The project is for system developers who want to enable application developers and their customers with the responsive and flexible thermal management, supporting optimal performance in desktop, clamshell, mobile and embedded devices.
