This tool, developed by Intel, is meant for vendors to validate and
certifcate their BIOS. It is also convenient for ACPI or general BIOS
related bugs. If you have an ACPI error/warning, run this tool and
provide output for bug tracking information

irqbalance dynamically switches the CPUs for IRQs to prevent cpu0 from
being used for all IRQs.

The Cpuset System is a processor and memory placement mechanism that
The libbitmask package provides an abstract data type for arbitrary
length bit masks, with a variety of operators. The cpuset package
depends on libbitmask.

The Cpuset System is a processor and memory placement mechanism that
enables a system administrator to confine tasks to running certain
CPUs, and to allocating memory on certain Memory Nodes. The libcpuset
library provides a convenient 'C' API to cpusets.

The libhugetlbfs package interacts with the Linux hugetlbfs to
make large pages available to applications in a transparent manner.

The Linux kernel's IEEE 1394 subsystem provides access to the raw 1394
bus through the raw1394 module. This includes the standard 1394
transactions (read, write, lock) on the active side, isochronous
stream receiving and sending and dumps of data written to the
FCP_COMMAND and FCP_RESPONSE registers. raw1394 uses a character
device to communicate to user programs using a special protocol.

libraw1394 was created with the intent to hide that protocol from
applications so that

- the protocol has to be implemented correctly only once.

- all work can be done using easy to understand functions instead of
handling a complicated command structure.

- only libraw1394 has to be changed when raw1394's interface changes.

mcelog retrieves machine check events from an x86-64 kernel in a cron
job, decodes them, and logs them to /var/log/mcelog.

A machine check event is a hardware error detected by the CPU.

It should run on any x86-64 system.

In addition, it allows decoding machine check kernel panic messages.

This utility allows updating the microcode of Intel and AMD x86 and x86-64

Tool to read and write MSRs (model specific registers). You have to
load the "msr" module manually ("modprobe msr").


Control NUMA policy for individual processes. Offer libnuma for
individual NUMA policy in applications.


Unlike other 'cpuinfo' tools which just parse /proc/cpuinfo, x86info
probes the CPU registers to find out more information. It can discover
the contents of model-specific registers, discover CPU silicon
revisions, and more.

collectd is a daemon (written in C) that reads various system
statistics and updates RRD files. Statistics are very fine grained
with an update interval of 10 seconds.

This software package provides basic support for
Cache Monitoring Technology (CMT), Memory Bandwidth Monitoring (MBM),
Cache Allocation Technology (CAT) and Code Data Prioratization (CDP).

CMT, MBM and CAT are configured using Model Specific Registers (MSRs)
to measure last level cache occupancy, set up the class of service masks and
manage the association of the cores/logical threads to a class of service.
The software executes in user space, and access to the MSRs is
obtained through a standard Linux* interface. The virtual file system
provides an interface to read and write the MSR registers but
it requires root privileges.

Cobbler is a network install server. Cobbler supports PXE, ISO
virtualized installs, and re-installing existing Linux machines.
The last two modes use a helper tool, 'koan', that integrates with
cobbler. There is also a web interface 'cobbler-web'. Cobbler's
advanced features include importing distributions from DVDs and rsync
mirrors, kickstart templating, integrated yum mirroring, and built-in
DHCP/DNS Management. Cobbler has a XMLRPC API for integration with
other applications.

set of utilities and libraries for ipmi query and configuration

This package contains a utility for interfacing with devices that
support the Intelligent Platform Management Interface specification.
IPMI is an open standard for machine health, inventory, and remote
power control.

This utility can communicate with IPMI-enabled devices through either a
kernel driver such as OpenIPMI or over the RMCP LAN protocol defined in
the IPMI specification. IPMIv2 adds support for encrypted LAN
communications and remote Serial-over-LAN functionality.

It provides commands for reading the Sensor Data Repository (SDR) and
displaying sensor values, displaying the contents of the System Event
Log (SEL), printing Field Replaceable Unit (FRU) information, reading
and setting LAN configuration, and chassis power control.
