.TH i7z 1 "20 July 2012"
i7z \- A better i7 (and now i3, i5) reporting tool for Linux.
\fBi7z [OPTION]\fP, [OPTION] is optional. i7z needs to be run in super user (root) mode.
i7z runs the i7z, ncurses based, program without any options. i7z will print out the C-states and temperature for i3, i5 and i7 based Core processors from Intel (including Nehalems, Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge).
\fB\-h, \-\-help \fPshow the list of options available with the i7z tool.
\fB\-w [a|l], \-\-write [a,l] \fPLogging of the frequencies can be turned on with this options. Option "\-w a" or "\-\-write a" will append to the log file. Option "\-w l" or "\-\-write l" will replace the log file.
\fB\-l, \-\-logfile [FILENAME] \fPChange the log file name to the specified FILENAME. Default logging file is cpu_freq_log.txt (single socket) or cpu_freq_log_dual%d.txt (dual socket, %d is either 0, 1).
\fB\-\-socket0 [SOCKETNUM], \-\-socket1 [SOCKETNUM] \fPThe tool can print information for about 2 sockets at once at the most. The top view will be, by default, of the first socket (controlled by \-\-socket0) and the bottom view will be of the second socket (controlled by \-\-socket1). Supply the appropriate value of 0 or 1 or more for SOCKETNUM (if there are more sockets on the machine) to show in the top and bottom view.
\fB\-\-nogui \fPDisable the GUI. Useful when the only need is logging.
To print for two sockets and also change the log file (log to /tmp/logfilei7z)
