Frequency scaling not working


Hi ,

I am using Intel Xeon X 3440 processor. The processor has 11 frequency steps to chose from. I have used cpufreq-selector for choosing a frequency and it worked fine. But, all of a sudden it stops working
out of the 11 steps i can change to only 2 frequencies and rest fail to work. I am clueless as to why it stopped working suddenly. If someone can help me with some information , it will be really great. Thanks a lot !

- Sethu

Show contents of your /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_available_frequencies if you have one, and output of dmesg.

[root@hgcc04 cpufreq]# cat scaling_available_frequencies
2528000 2527000 2394000 2261000 2128000 1995000 1862000 1729000 1596000 1463000 1330000 1197000

These are the 11 frequency steps.

The frequency scaling issue :


[root@hgcc04 cpufreq]# cat scaling_available_frequencies
2528000 2527000 2394000 2261000 2128000 1995000 1862000 1729000 1596000 1463000 1330000 1197000
[root@hgcc04 cpufreq]# cat cpuinfo_cur_freq
2527000
[root@hgcc04 cpufreq]# cpufreq-selector -f 1330000
[root@hgcc04 cpufreq]# cat cpuinfo_cur_freq
2527000
[root@hgcc04 cpufreq]# cpufreq-selector -f 2528000
[root@hgcc04 cpufreq]# cat cpuinfo_cur_freq
2528000
[root@hgcc04 cpufreq]#

You can notice that It changes but not for all frequency steps. It is weird. It was working fine few days ago.

And how is set "/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor"? It should be "userspace". If not check also if you have it available in "/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_available_governors".

Yeah I checked. I set it to userspace and still unable to scale the frequency. We are having a cluster of 13 nodes. In those, only 3 fail to work. We do scaling experiments on these 3. Before the experiments they were working. During the experiment we used the cpufreq subsystem to set frequency and we do it roughly every 1 second. Will this have an effect on this problem ?

I wrote a sample code to test whether frequency scaling works on the machines :


import os

# Function to make sure the input frequency is in the list, accepts a float. Returns 1 on success and 0 on failure
def validate(freq):
freq_list=get_freq_list()
for line in freq_list:
if(freq==float(line)):
return 1
return 0

# Function to set the CPU scaling frequency , accepts a float. Returns 1 on success and 0 on failure
def set_freq(freq):
if(validate(freq)):
exp_freq=str(freq).split('.')[0]
os.system ('cpufreq-selector -f '+exp_freq)
return 1
else:
print "invalid frequency"
return 0

# Function to get the list of available processor frequency steps. Returns a list containing floats
def get_freq_list():
freq_list=[]
try:
all_freq_file=open('/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_available_frequencies')
file_contents=all_freq_file.readline().rstrip().split(' ')
for line in file_contents:
freq_list.append(float(line))
except:
freq_list = [100, 80]
return freq_list

# Function to get current frequency. Returns a float
def get_cur_freq():
cur_freq_file=open('/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/cpuinfo_cur_freq')
return float(cur_freq_file.readline().rstrip())

class Frequency_Manager:
def __init__(self, cpu_number):
self._freq_list = get_freq_list()
self._freq_list.sort(reverse=True)
#print self._freq_list
self._max_freq = self._freq_list[0]
self._min_freq = self._freq_list[-1]

self._normalize_level = self._min_freq

set_freq(self._max_freq)
#self._current_freq = self._max_freq
self._resource_capacity = cpu_number * 100 * self._max_freq / self._normalize_level

def getScaleRatio(self):
#print "alpha:", self._current_freq * 1.0 / self._max_freq
x = get_cur_freq() * 1.0 / self._normalize_level
#y = (1 - 0.71) / (1 - 0.47) * (x - 0.47) + 0.71
return x

def setFreq_back(self, nomorlized_demand, scale_up = False):
target_freq = nomorlized_demand * 1.0 / self._resource_capacity * self._max_freq
index = 0
for i in range(len(self._freq_list)):
left = self._freq_list[i]
right = -1
if i < len(self._freq_list) - 1:
right = self._freq_list[i + 1]
if(left >= target_freq and target_freq > right):
index = i
break
#print "setting frequency:", self._freq_list[index]
if scale_up:
if index > 0:
index -= 1
target_freq = self._freq_list[index]
if target_freq != get_cur_freq():
set_freq(self._freq_list[index])
#self._current_freq = self._freq_list[index]

def setFreq(self, nomorlized_demand, scale_up = False):
target_freq = nomorlized_demand * 1.0 / 100 * self._normalize_level
index = 0
for i in range(len(self._freq_list)):
left = self._freq_list[i]
right = -1
if i < len(self._freq_list) - 1:
right = self._freq_list[i + 1]
if(left >= target_freq and target_freq > right):
index = i
break
#print "setting frequency:", self._freq_list[index]
if scale_up:
if index > 0:
index -= 1
target_freq = self._freq_list[index]
if target_freq != get_cur_freq():
set_freq(self._freq_list[index])
#self._current_freq = self._freq_list[index]

def getCapacity(self):
return self._resource_capacity

def getFreq(self):
return get_cur_freq()


if __name__ == '__main__':
freq_list = get_freq_list()
for freq in freq_list:
set_freq(freq)
getfreq = get_cur_freq()
print "set: %s, get: %s" % (freq, getfreq)





My output in a machine in which scaling failed to work completely :


set: 2528000.0, get: 2528000.0
set: 2527000.0, get: 2528000.0
set: 2394000.0, get: 2528000.0

set: 1330000.0, get: 2528000.0
set: 1197000.0, get: 2528000.0

In a machine in which it partially works (This case makes me go crazy) :


set: 2528000.0, get: 2528000.0
set: 2527000.0, get: 2527000.0
set: 2394000.0, get: 2394000.0

set: 1729000.0, get: 1862000.0
set: 1596000.0, get: 1862000.0
set: 1463000.0, get: 1862000.0
set: 1330000.0, get: 1862000.0
set: 1197000.0, get: 1862000.0


In a machine where it completely works :


set: 2528000.0, get: 2528000.0
set: 2527000.0, get: 2527000.0
set: 2394000.0, get: 2394000.0
set: 2261000.0, get: 2261000.0
set: 2128000.0, get: 2128000.0
set: 1995000.0, get: 1995000.0
set: 1862000.0, get: 1862000.0
set: 1729000.0, get: 1729000.0

set: 1330000.0, get: 1330000.0
set: 1197000.0, get: 1197000.0


I am running these experiments in Centos 5.5 OS . Kernel : 2.6.16-194 with Xen hypervisor version 3.4.3. The processor used is Intel Xeon 3440 with speedstep enabled.

Is it always that you can't set under some frequency (1862000 in your example)?
Can you check what is in "cpuinfo_max_freq", "cpuinfo_min_freq" and "scaling_min_freq", "scaling_max_freq", it should be the same. I can change the later values.

[root@hgcc06 cpufreq]# cat cpuinfo_max_freq
2528000
[root@hgcc06 cpufreq]# cat cpuinfo_min_freq
1197000
[root@hgcc06 cpufreq]# cat scaling_max_freq
2528000
[root@hgcc06 cpufreq]# cat scaling_min_freq
1197000
[root@hgcc06 cpufreq]#


But still scaling is not working

When i enter "service cpuspeed status "

I get "cpuspeed dead but subsys locked"

I don't known what that is mean. But I am curious if you set powersafe governor, then CPU speed will be 1197000 or not?

Well, it seems that these experiments changed something. Can explain what exactly was made? Maybe some used code.
