thanks for the participation and the interaction during the tutorial!
We have uploaded the slides and the solution to the histogram exercise to the Materials section of the CMS.
During the tutorial, I was asked whether there is an AMD equivalent for Intel Turbo Boost and it seems there is one called AMD Turbo Core. Fortunately, it seems like we can disable that in a similar manner (at least it worked on the AMD where I just tested this):
To disable AMD Turbo Core:
echo "0" | sudo tee /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq/boost
To enable it again:
echo "1" | sudo tee /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq/boost
As always: Be careful when using these commands as they directly affect the behavior of your processor and we recommend using all these things only when debugging microarchitectural experiments.
