Tegrastats CPU/system power consumption


I am using the tegrastats tool to check power consumption on the Jetson AGX Xavier. Does this tool measure total power consumption of the system? Or does it measure only the power consumption of the CPU? Because it seems to me that an average consumption of 1W is too low while the Xavier has a sizeable workload, in this case it was detecting objects in real time using YOLOv3 on CPU, on 15W Desktop mode.

If tegrastats measures only CPU power consumption, is there a way to check total power consumed by the AGX Xavier?

hello Pedr,

tegrastats utility parse the system nodes to monitor the power consumption,
you would also check documentation, please refer to Software-Based Power Consumption Modeling for more details.
