PwrTest Info Scenario

The PwrTest Info Scenario captures and logs the current system power information from various categories.

Syntax

pwrtest /info:option [/p:{n|a|*}] [/w:n]  [/?] 

/info:option

optionDescription

all

Displays all system information.

powercap

Displays SYSTEM_POWER_CAPABILITIES.

powerinfo

Displays SYSTEM_POWER_CAPABILITIES.

battery

Displays SYSTEM_BATTERY_STATE.

ppm

Displays all processor information.

ppmidle

Displays processor idle state information.

ppmperf

Displays processor performance state information.

ppmperfverbose

Displays processor performance state information in the verbose format .

 

/p:{n|a|*}

Specifies the logical processor number for /info:ppm/info:ppmidle, or /info:ppmperf options.

a or *

Specifies all the logical processor(s) (default).

/w:{y|n}

Specifies the time in seconds to wait for PPM rundown event (default is 10 seconds).

Examples

pwrtest /info:all
  pwrtest /info:battery
  pwrtest /info:ppm
  pwrtest /info:ppm /p:1
 pwrtest /info:ppmidle
  pwrtest /info:ppmperf /p:2

The following table describes the XML elements that appear in the log file.

ElementDescription
<InfoScenario>

Contains information related to the info scenario. There is only one <InfoScenario> element in a PwrTest log file.

<SYSTEM_POWER_CAPABILITIES>

Contains information related to system power capabilities. This information is retrieved from the SYSTEM_POWER_CAPABILITIES structure.

<SystemSxStateSupported>

Indicates if a given system ACPI sleep state is supported on the system.

<RtcWakeSupported>

Indicates the lowest sleep state where RTC wake (wake on timer) is supported. The value is of the SYSTEM_POWER_STATE enumeration.

<FastSystemS4>

Indicates if hybrid sleep is available on the system.

<SYSTEM_POWER_INFORMATION>

Contains information related to the idleness of the system.

<MaxIdlenessAllowed>

Indicates the idleness (in percentage) when the system is considered idle and the idle timeout begins counting.

<Idleness>

Current idle level, expressed in percentage.

<TimeRemaining>

Indicates the time remaining in the system standby idle timer, in seconds.

<CoolingMode>

Indicates the current system cooling mode: (0) Active, (1), Passive, (2) Invalid.

<SYSTEM_BATTERY_STATE>

Contains information related to the current state of the system battery.

<AcOnLine>

Indicates whether the system is currently operating on AC power.

<BatteryPresent>

Indicates if at least one battery is present in the system.

<Charging>

Indicates whether at least one battery is currently charging.

<Discharging>

Indicates whether at least one battery is currently discharging.

<MaxCapacity>

Maximum capacity of the battery when new, in milliwatt hours (mW-h).

<RemainingCapacity>

Estimated remaining capacity of the battery, in milliwatt hours (mW-h).

<RateOfDrain>

Indicates the current rate of discharge of the battery in milliwatts (mW).

<EstimatedTime>

Estimated time remaining on the battery, in seconds.

<DefaultAlert1>

Indicates the battery manufacturer's suggested capacity when a low battery alert should occur.

<DefaultAlert2>

Indicates the battery manufacturer's suggested capacity when a warning battery alert should occur.

<PROCESSOR_POWER_INFORMATION>

Contains information related to the system processors and their power management capabilities.

<CPUNumber>

Indicates which processor the current <PROCESSOR_POWER_INFORMATION> element is describing.

<MaxMhz>

Indicates the maximum frequency of the processor.

<CurrentMhz>

Indicates the current frequency of the processor.

<MhzLimit>

Indicates the current limit on the processor clock frequency.

<MaxIdleState>

Indicates the maximum idle state of the processor.

<CurrentIdleState>

Indicates the current idle state of the processor.
