CPU speed only shows on occasion.



  • Sometimes it shows cpu speed, sometimes it doesn't. I'm not really sure if it's supposed to or if there's some sort of trigger.



  • Under the "General Setup". There a setting to allow how long it takes to refresh the dashboard. I believe 10 seconds is the default. It doesn't show at a live rate unfortunately.
    Hope this helps.

    Cheers




  • If I remember correctly, the "Current" CPU speed only shows if it is different from the full speed of the processor. So if you have a 1.8 GHz processor that has been throttled down to 1.3 GHz to save some power, then it would likely show the current speed. But if it's doing some processing and running at full speed, then it probably won't show up.

    This is the correct answer. If the current speed is full speed, it doesn't bother printing the number. It only prints the speed if it's different in any way than expected.



  • Sorry about that, I misinterpreted the question entirely Haha.



  • I have an N3150 with 1.6GHz speed, but a boost speed of 2.08GHz.  Does pfSense ever make use of the 2.08GHz speed?  I cannot tell from the dashboard, as the clock speed goes away above 1.44GHz or so.

    Also, it would be nice if the speed was just always displayed, instead of the page jumping up and down as the speed display comes and goes.
