NAME
longrun -- Transmeta(TM) Crusoe(TM) LongRun(TM) support SYNOPSIS
LongRun support is a collection of power saving modes for the Transmeta Crusoe chips, similar in scope to Intel's SpeedStep. The following sysctl(8) MIBs control the different CPU modes: Name Type Changeable Description hw.crusoe.longrun integer yes LongRun mode: 0: minimum frequency mode 1: power-saving mode 2: performance mode 3: maximum frequency mode hw.crusoe.frequency integer no Current frequency (MHz). hw.crusoe.voltage integer no Current voltage (mV). hw.crusoe.percentage integer no Processing performance (%). EXAMPLES
Print the current status: % sysctl hw.crusoe To set LongRun mode to performance oriented variable frequency mode (less power savings): # sysctl hw.crusoe.longrun=2 HISTORY
The Transmeta(TM) Crusoe(TM) LongRun(TM) support first appeared in FreeBSD 4.4. AUTHORS
LongRun support and this manual page were written by Tamotsu HATTORI <athlete@kta.att.ne.jp> and Mitsuru IWASAKI <iwasaki@FreeBSD.org>. BSD

NAME
powerd -- system power control utility SYNOPSIS
powerd [-a mode] [-b mode] [-i percent] [-m freq] [-M freq] [-n mode] [-p ival] [-P pidfile] [-r percent] [-v] DESCRIPTION
The powerd utility monitors the system state and sets various power control options accordingly. It offers power-saving modes that can be individually selected for operation on AC power or batteries. maximum Choose the highest performance values. May be abbreviated as max. minimum Choose the lowest performance values to get the most power savings. May be abbreviated as min. adaptive Attempt to strike a balance by degrading performance when the system appears idle and increasing it when the system is busy. It offers a good balance between a small performance loss for greatly increased power savings. May be abbreviated as adp. hiadaptive Like adaptive mode, but tuned for systems where performance and interactivity are more important than power consumption. It increases frequency faster, reduces frequency less aggressively, and will maintain full frequency for longer. May be abbreviated as hadp. The default mode is adaptive for battery power and hiadaptive for the rest. powerd recognizes these runtime options: -a mode Selects the mode to use while on AC power. -b mode Selects the mode to use while on battery power. -i percent Specifies the CPU load percent level when adaptive mode should begin to degrade performance to save power. The default is 50% or lower. -m freq Specifies the minimum frequency to throttle down to. -M freq Specifies the maximum frequency to throttle up to. -n mode Selects the mode to use normally when the AC line state is unknown. -p ival Specifies a different polling interval (in milliseconds) for AC line state and system idle levels. The default is 250 ms. -P pidfile Specifies an alternative file in which the process ID should be stored. The default is /var/run/powerd.pid. -r percent Specifies the CPU load percent level where adaptive mode should consider the CPU running and increase performance. The default is 75% or higher. -v Verbose mode. Messages about power changes will be printed to stdout and powerd will operate in the foreground. SEE ALSO
acpi(4), apm(4), cpufreq(4) HISTORY
The powerd utility first appeared in FreeBSD 6.0. AUTHORS
Colin Percival first wrote estctrl, the utility that powerd is based on. Nate Lawson then updated it for cpufreq(4), added features, and wrote this manual page. BUGS
The powerd utility should also power down idle disks and other components besides the CPU. If powerd is used with power_profile, they may override each other. The powerd utility should probably use the devctl(4) interface instead of polling for AC line state. BSD
