Description

This test is intended to measure time your CPU spent in different C states and frequencies when you are working with your computer as usually. It will probably provide very different results for each tester. In spite of that it could be very interesting.

Privileges: normal user
Runlevel: multiuser (X11)
ETA: 10 minutes


How to test

  1. Reboot your computer.
  2. Login as a normal user.
  3. Open terminal window.
  4. Run: testday-run-personal
