CPUID PerfMonitor is a software application that monitors the performance of your computer. It is able to display important data about the CPU level, core temperature and package power.
The user interface is intuitive and you should be able to master this program pretty quickly. Thanks to its clean layout and overall simplicity, it appeals to beginners and experts alike.
The app allows users to select a processor, provided that your system includes more the one, and once you have selected it, the application automatically displays the details about it in the main window.
The program is able to display four main events that are tracked on the processor. You can select the counters that you want to be tracked, and the reported data is displayed in the main window with the help of a graph. CPUID PerfMonitor displays basic information about your processor and also reveals important data, such as core or CPU level.
The useful information included in the reports can be saved to plain text file format, so you can later analyze your computer’s performance details.
The application provides several events that can be tracked, such as cache requests, branch instruction rate, instruction per clock, stalled cycles ratio, usage, power and temperature. The app works fast and no errors showed up during our testing.
To sum up, CPUID PerfMonitor is a handy tool that can help you gather important data about your computer’s performance. It’s easy to work with and also light on your system resources.
CPUID PerfMonitor is an intuitive application for monitoring the performance of your computer’s processor. It allows to track the frequency of 4 events chosen in a set of model-specific list.
CPUID PerfMonitor can be used to identify the performance bottlenecks of a system, or to monitor a program for cache-miss rate or mis-predicted branches. But CPUID PerfMonitor can also be used as a hardware-level CPU comparison tool, comparing the key parameters of different CPUs runnning the same benchmark.
CPUID PerfMonitor allows to track up to 4 events, depending on the CPU model. Each event is attached to a graph. In order to change the monitored event, put the mouse cursor on a graph then click on the left button to make the events menu selection appear (note that the currently monitored event is checked in the menu).
Because of hardware limitations (namely the number of available counters), it is possible that all the desired events can’t be monitored in the same time than other events. If a requested event is not available for monitoring, the graph will appear in grey color.
Note that the events are created from the top to the bottom, consequently the events on the top graphs have more chance to be allocated. Note also that some events need two counters, especailly the ones that tracks a cache level success rate. If the change of an event frees a counter that allows a non-available event to be monitored, it will be started automatically.
