I am trying to install the ATLAS BLAS library which recommends that I turn if CPU throttling to do the install.

How do I check if my CPU throttling is ON or OFF?

I tried the suggestion of Code:

./cpufreq-selector -g performance

in the /usr/bin directory as suggested elsewhere in the forum but there was no output and the control returned back to the user.

I have searched everywhere but there does not seem to be a way to determine the status of the CPU throttling

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

The throttling control is managed by the cpuspeed daemon on RedHat 5\6

You can stop the daemon:

service cpuspeed stop

More information can be found on the cpuspeed daemon man.
