Difference in power consumption when booting xavier's GUI and CLI

A custom board was created using AGX Xavier.

We confirmed that the current peak varies when applied in GUI mode and CLI mode during booting.

I would like to know if there is any documentation or method to check the amount of current required for each mode.

GUI mode peak current: 3.38A
CLI mode peak current: 2.98A

I can’t answer, but consider that command line does not use the GPU for rendering. There is also less to compute for the command line, so compute cycles would go up in the GUI even if the GPU was not used for the graphics.

You can run sudo tegrastats to get the system information. Please check the sections in developer guide:
Platform Power and Performance — NVIDIA Jetson Linux Developer Guide 1 documentation
