This document describes version
Sys::Info::Device::CPU released on
31 July 2011.
Collects and returns information about the Central Processing Unit (CPU) on the host machine.
Some platforms can limit the available information under some user accounts and this will affect the accessible amount of data. When this happens, some methods will not return anything usable.
Acceps parameters in
key => value format.
If has a true value, internal cache will be enabled. Cache timeout can be controlled via
On some platforms, some methods can take a long time to be completed (i.e.: WMI access on Windows platform). If cache is enabled, all gathered data will be saved in an internal in-memory cache and, the related method will serve from cache until the cache expires.
Cache only has a meaning, if you call the related method continiously (in a loop, under persistent environments like GUI, mod_perl, PerlEx, etc.). It will not have any effect if you are calling it only once.
Must be used together with
cache parameter. If cache is enabled, and this is not set, it will take the default value:
Timeout value is in seconds.
If called in a list context; returns an AoH filled with CPU metadata. If called in a scalar context, returns the name of the CPU (if CPU is multi-core or there are multiple CPUs, it'll also include the number of CPUs).
undef upon failure.
Returns the CPU clock speed in MHz if successful. Returns
Returns the number of CPUs (or number of total cores).
If successful, returns the bitness (
64 ) of the CPU. Returns false otherwise.
Returns the CPU load percentage if successful. Returns
The average CPU load average in the last minute. If you pass a level argument, it'll return the related CPU load.
use Sys::Info::Constants qw( :device_cpu ); printf "CPU Load: %s\n", $cpu->load(DCPU_LOAD_LAST_01);
Load level constants:
LEVEL MEANING ----------------- ------------------------------- DCPU_LOAD_LAST_01 CPU Load in the last 1 minute DCPU_LOAD_LAST_05 CPU Load in the last 5 minutes DCPU_LOAD_LAST_10 CPU Load in the last 10 minutes
LEVEL defaults to
Using this method under Windows is not recommended since, the
WMI interface will possibly take at least
2 seconds to complete the request.
Returns the number of threads if hyper threading is supported, returns false otherwise.
