SYNOPSIS

lsmsr [-hv] [-a [-c cpu_nr] [-f family] [-l] [-r name|address] [-V verbosity] [MSR]

DESCRIPTION

lsmsr is a tool to display information for machine specific registers of x86 CPUs. Following CPUs are supported: AMD family 0xf and family 0x10. For Intel and other AMD CPUs just a some common MSRs is supported.

OPTIONS

-a, --all
  Show information for all MSRs known to the tool for that CPU family.
-c cpu_nr, --cpu cpu_nr
  Select CPU (by number) for which MSR information should be displayed (default: 0).
-f fam, --family fam
  Specify CPU family. Normally CPU family is auto-detected. You can use this option to disable auto-detection, e.g. for debugging purposes.
-l, --list
  Show definition (address, field description) of selected MSR(s).
-r name|address, --register name|address
  Specify MSR (by name or address in hex) for which MSR information should be displayed.
-V num, --verbosity num
  Select verbosity of output format (between 0 and 4, default: 0)
-h, --help
  Print help message and exit.
-v, --version
  Display version info and exit.

Examples
