CPU core stress test

On your page Verdin iMX8M Plus Power Consumption | Toradex Developer Center you show the names of some benchmark/stresstest utilities:

  • glmark2

  • iperf3

You also list power consumption for “Stress 1 cores” and more. How did you proceed for stressing 1 core / 2 core etc.
Is there a utility included in the Reference Multimedia Image for Yocto Project 5.6.0-devel-20220316+build.600 I could also use?
I like to stress test 1 core / 2 cores / 3 cores / 4 cores

Hello @zorro,

Thanks for reaching out to us!

We have included stress-ng utility since BSP 5, with which can perform your stress tests.
You can find more details here and also on the reference manual of stress-ng.

I hope that answers your question.

yes, thank you. We also used the yes command but stress-ng is more sophisticated.

Hello @zorro,

I hope you could perform the stress tests successfully :slight_smile:
If this solves your issue, could you please mark the above answer as a solution?
