Disappearing 'current' part in System information Widget



  • After login to pfSense, the System information widget shows:

    CPU Type Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3450 CPU @ 3.10GHz
    Current: 2500 MHz, Max: 3101 MHz
    4 CPUs: 1 package(s) x 4 core(s) 
    

    A few seconds later, it changes in

    CPU Type Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3450 CPU @ 3.10GHz
    4 CPUs: 1 package(s) x 4 core(s)
    

    The Current: part does not come back. Is this a bug?



  • "Current" only shows if it's not running at max frequency.



  • Ok, makes sense  :D

    So I my case just logging in and showing widgets causes max frequency (I5-3450).

  • @cmb:

    "Current" only shows if it's not running at max frequency.

    Which I find REALLY annoying because one of my boxes runs at 1 MHz less than max most of the time… so it always shows "Current: 1992 MHz, Max: 1993 MHz"...



  • Idle situation (no login on GUI), putty to pfSense

    CLI: sysctl -a | grep "freq:"
    dev.cpu.0.freq: 1600

    After GUI login (even after a while):
    dev.cpu.0.freq: 3101

    So it seems the GUI causes the CPU to max frequency
