PowerTOP v2.4 released

BY Kristen Accardi ON Jul 19, 2013
We are pleased to announce the release of PowerTOP v2.4.
 
About PowerTOP
PowerTOP is a Linux tool to diagnose issues with power consumption and 
power management. In addition to being a diagnostic tool, PowerTOP also 
has an interactive mode you can use to experiment with various power 
management settings, for cases where the Linux distribution has not 
enabled those settings.
 
PowerTOP reports which components in the system are most likely to blame 
for higher-than-needed power consumption, ranging from software 
applications to active components in the system. Detailed screens are 
available for CPU C and P states, device activity, and software activity.
 
For many years, PowerTOP has been used heavily by Intel, Linux 
distributors, and various parts of the open source community. 
 
Highlights
* support for the Intel Haswell ULT CPU counters
* support for reporting of SATA DEVSLP in the alpm accounting patch
* RAPL support
