1 Hi,
3 yesterday I md5summed my hole system with find.....|
4 xargs....md5sum....
6 With options I set xargs to use all 12 thread and use as much args per
7 call as possible in one line.
9 After a while I checked the CPU with glance and it shows, that all
10 12 cores/threads were "loaded" with 100% each constantly over a
11 period of about 1h. The CPU temperature rises to about 47°C.
13 The CPU does not contain a GPU. Graphics goes extra.
15 Today I created again a CPU load over a comparable duration with
16 a constant 100% CPU load on each core/thread.
18 Interesting it does not take more than 3 minutes to reach 65°C CPU
19 temperature.
21 Both temperatures reflect the die temperature.
23 What is the difference between 100% CPU load and 100% CPU load to
24 create such an difference in temperature?
25 How is X% load calculated?
27 Cheers!
