This bit of perl magic should do it (answer in Mhz):

Code:
#!/usr/contrib/bin/perl

    local($PSTAT, $PSTAT_PROCESSOR) = (239, 10);        # pstat_getprocessor
    local($struct_pst_processor) = ("L30");
    local($cpu_info, $cpu_ticks);

    $cpu_info = "\0" x 120;
    syscall($PSTAT, $PSTAT_PROCESSOR, $cpu_info, length($cpu_info), 1, 0);

    ($cpu_ticks) = (unpack($struct_pst_processor, $cpu_info))[26];

        print $cpu_ticks/10000 . "\n";

PxT:

When I tried that Perl script on my BSD boxes, all I got was a core file. I guess it only works on HP-UX?

Code:
FreeBSD:/home/joeuser/procspeed $ chmod +x procspeed.pl
FreeBSD:/home/joeuser/procspeed $ ./procspeed.pl
Bad system call (core dumped)
FreeBSD:/home/joeuser/procspeed $

So I went back to dmesg output and performed a case insensitive search for "MHz":

Code:
FreeBSD:/home/joeuser $ dmesg | grep -i "mhz"
CPU: AMD Duron(tm) processor (950.04-MHz 686-class CPU)

Just out of curiosity, does this work under HP-UX (I don't have access to a HP-UX box, only BSD boxes at the moment).

Yes it does. It is using HP's pstat system call which is unique to HP-UX. It won't work on other versions of unix.

As perderabo mentioned, this is hp-ux specific. HP's boot messages generally do not provide the Mhz information, so dmesg cannot be used. The provided perl code should work on any hp-ux machine.

Just another bit of information to tuck away until needed.

Thanks

Just do it in SH

Hi all,

There's a easier way to get CPU frequency on HP-UX 11 :
echo "itick_per_usec/D" | /usr/bin/adb -k /stand/vmunix /dev/mem

Cheers.
