Read CPU frequency using linux command "cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpuX/cpufreq/scaling_cur_freq"

This example read files "/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu[0..]/cpufreq/scaling_cur_freq" with Linux's cat command, to determine running cpu frequency.


In Linux, there will be some file like this, to show the CPUs frequency.
/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_cur_freq
/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/cpufreq/scaling_cur_freq
...

Run adb command:
$ adb shell ls /sys/devices/system/cpu/

It will show some directory named cpu0, cpu1..., it is the number of cpu in your system.

Run adb command, to show the current frequency of cpu0:
$ adb shell cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_cur_freq
