Reported by: ggamba Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: Feedback pending
Component: Utilities Version: 3.14
Keywords: throttle centrino Cc: ggamba@…

Description

Hello,

When running setgetthrtl, I get indication that it should work:

[c:\scrivania]setgetthrtl

Searching processors

Processor [CPU0]

ProcId??: 0x0 P_BLK: 0x1010 P_BLK len: 0x6

Possible for throttle setting Processor [CPU1]

ProcId??: 0x1 P_BLK: 0x1010 P_BLK len: 0x6

Possible for throttle setting CPU0 throttling is disabled CPU1 throttling is disabled

But when I try to set different performance, I get an error:

[c:\scrivania]setgetthrtl 0 20

Trottling set error rc=65283

This is with acpi-20081002.zip

  • Version changed from 3.11 to 3.14

Question: is SMP kernel needed for throttle to work?

Anything special that should go in AcpiD.cfg?

comment:10 Changed 9 years ago by pasha

  • Owner changed from pasha to Pasha

comment:11 Changed 9 years ago by pasha

SMP kernel don't need. Check all SetGetThrtl? at your disk (from PATH). I see some error in your log. What is battery?

comment:12 Changed 9 years ago by ggamba

Sorry, there is only one SetGetThrtl?.exe on the disk and it is:

11/11/08 21:30 14.316 0 SetGetThrtl?.exe

I've seen the error too, but I don't understand it. Battery is ok, CRC alarm for low battery works fine!

Hi Pasha,

no luck, still "Trottling set error rc=65283".

In the log file there are still the errors... the log file is attached as acpi.2.log.

Pasha, log file attached as acpi.2.log.

Still the same error. I noted in the log the line:

"SetThrottling?: ProcID 0 num:0"

Is it right?

Thanks for the effort!

Here we are, acpi.4.log attached. The log ends with:

SetThrottling?: ProcID 0 num:0

SetThrottling?: ret status = 0x1A9

comment:22 Changed 9 years ago by pasha

Sorry, my eyes is very bad ;-)

* Throttl Width 0 Offset 1

This say, that your computer don't support throttling. But you very help for check return values. Thanks. In next version be return AE_NOT_EXIST and be checked in program for this.

  • Milestone changed from Release version 3.15 to Feedback pending

Gabriele, please test 3.15 when it is released and verify that the lack of throttling support is reported correctly. Thx.

comment:24 Changed 9 years ago by eco

e-co:

Hello Gabriele

I missed something, does throttling work fro your notebook on W4 kernel?

comment:25 Changed 9 years ago by eco

e-co:

Pasha repeats that no throttling for this notebook

  • look at line from log
  • no throttling in Win/Lin? and eCS, doesn't depend on SMP or W4 kernel

comment:26 Changed 9 years ago by ggamba

I want to test at least setgetstate, that currently doesn't work anymore, probably due to SMP kernel, so I have in program to change the kernel.

At that point, I can test also setgettrhtottle, no problem!

Hi Steven, this is with acpi-20081203.zip:

[c:\scrivania]setgetthrtl 0 20

Searching processors

Processor [CPU0] id:0 Possible for throttle setting

Processor [CPU1] id:1 Possible for throttle setting

Trottling set error rc=65283

Is this message correcting reporting that throttling is not available?

  • Milestone changed from Release version 3.19 to Feedback pending

This ticket is really old and for an unsupported version. A lot has changed since this ticket. Have you tried the current version? The power manager in the Daemon will tell you if there are any controllable CPUs. Do not use the old setgetthrtl program.

The laptop is not available anymore! Please close the ticket.
