Soc Watch on Linux

Hi,

I have installed System Studio 2016 on my Ubuntu 14.04 Skylake board. When I run the socwatch command as per https://software.intel.com/en-us/node/591968, to be specific: 

>./socwatch -t 60 -f cpu-cstate -m -r vtune -o ./results/test

 I get the below message:

open error in config_i: No such file or directory

ERROR: immediate read failed: couldn't initialize driver connection

FATAL: ERROR retrieving platform name

FATAL: ERROR running collection

ERROR: ERROR working controller!

ERROR: ERROR running controller!

The SOCWatchConfig.txt file is present in the working directory. I have build the drivers as per the instruction guide. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Hey,

I had some weird issues while running on Ubuntu 14.04 Skylake board. I had got it working on the Broadwell platform though. But unfortunately I don't exactly remember the steps I had taken to debug this. What I weakly remember is to follow the steps mentioned in the manual to build the drivers.

Sorry couldn't be of much help.

Please check first if the driver is built and installed successfully before you use the socwatch. The instructions for driver setup is here: https://software.intel.com/en-us/driver_setup_for_energy_analysis

I would also recommend to upgrade the product to the latest Intel system studio 2017 update 1 release. If you still got the problem, please let me know your exact CPU configs (e.g. output from lscpu). Some of the CPU type may still only be supported under NDA.

Thanks.
