       x86info -- display x86 CPU diagnostics

       x86info	[-a]   [-c]   [-f]  [fB-F]   [-m]  [-mhz]   [-r]  [?]  [--all]
       [--cache]  [--flags]  [--verbose]   [--msr]    [--mhz]	 [--registers]

       This manual page	documents x86info, a program which displays a range of
       information about the CPUs present in an	x86 system.

       In order	to make	full use of this program you need to have the  CPU  ID
       and  MSR	 device	 drivers  in  your kernel with accessible device files
       /dev/cpu/<n>/cpuid and /dev/cpu/<n>/msr.

       This program follows the	usual GNU command line syntax, with  long  op-
       tions starting with two dashes (`-').  A	summary	of options is included

       ?	   --help
		 Show summary of options.

       -a	    --all
		 Show all information.	Equivalent to -c -f -m	    -r -mhz.

       -c	    --cache
		 Show TLB, cache sizes and cache associativity.

       -f	    --flags
		 Show CPU feature flags.

       -m	    --msr
		 Dump model specific registers.	  This	feature	 is  currently
		 only supported	on a few different processors. Future versions
		 will include parsing of bits in MSRs for all processors.

       -mhz	      --mhz
		 Estimate current clock	rate.

       -mp	      --mptable
		 Dump MP table showing CPUs BIOS knows about.

       -r	    --registers
		 Show register values from all possible	cpuid calls.

       -s	    --show-machine-check
		 Show machine check exception information.

       -v	    --verbose
		 Show verbose descriptions.

       This manual page	was written by Mark Brown <> for the
       Debian GNU/Linux	system (but may	be used	by others).
