NAME

       Sys::Info::Device::CPU

VERSION

       version 0.7807

SYNOPSIS

          use Sys::Info;
          use Sys::Info::Constants qw( :device_cpu );
          my $info = Sys::Info->new;
          my $cpu  = $info->device( CPU => %options );

       Example:

          printf "CPU: %s\n", scalar($cpu->identify)  || 'N/A';
          printf "CPU speed is %s MHz\n", $cpu->speed || 'N/A';
          printf "There are %d CPUs\n"  , $cpu->count || 1;
          printf "CPU load: %s\n"       , $cpu->load  || 0;

DESCRIPTION

       Collects and returns information about the Central Processing Unit (CPU) on the host
       machine.

       Some platforms can limit the available information under some user accounts and this will
       affect the accessible amount of data. When this happens, some methods will not return
       anything usable.

NAME

       Sys::Info::Device::CPU - CPU information.

METHODS

   new
       Acceps parameters in "key => value" format.

       cache

       If has a true value, internal cache will be enabled.  Cache timeout can be controlled via
       "cache_timeout" parameter.

       On some platforms, some methods can take a long time to be completed (i.e.: WMI access on
       Windows platform).  If cache is enabled, all gathered data will be saved in an internal
       in-memory cache and, the related method will serve from cache until the cache expires.

       Cache only has a meaning, if you call the related method continiously (in a loop, under
       persistent environments like GUI, mod_perl, PerlEx, etc.). It will not have any effect if
       you are calling it only once.

       cache_timeout

       Must be used together with "cache" parameter. If cache is enabled, and this is not set, it
       will take the default value: 10.

       Timeout value is in seconds.

   identify
       If called in a list context; returns an AoH filled with CPU metadata. If called in a
       scalar context, returns the name of the CPU (if CPU is multi-core or there are multiple
       CPUs, it'll also include the number of CPUs).

       Returns "undef" upon failure.

   speed
       Returns the CPU clock speed in MHz if successful.  Returns "undef" otherwise.

   count
       Returns the number of CPUs (or number of total cores).

   bitness
       If successful, returns the bitness ( 32 or 64 ) of the CPU. Returns false otherwise.

   load [, LEVEL]
       Returns the CPU load percentage if successful.  Returns "undef" otherwise.

       The average CPU load average in the last minute. If you pass a level argument, it'll
       return the related CPU load.

           use Sys::Info::Constants qw( :device_cpu );
           printf "CPU Load: %s\n", $cpu->load(DCPU_LOAD_LAST_01);

       Load level constants:

           LEVEL               MEANING
           -----------------   -------------------------------
           DCPU_LOAD_LAST_01   CPU Load in the last  1 minute
           DCPU_LOAD_LAST_05   CPU Load in the last  5 minutes
           DCPU_LOAD_LAST_10   CPU Load in the last 10 minutes

       "LEVEL" defaults to "DCPU_LOAD_LAST_01".

       Using this method under Windows is not recommended since, the "WMI" interface will
       possibly take at least 2 seconds to complete the request.

   hyper_threading
   ht
       Returns the number of threads if hyper threading is supported, returns false otherwise.
