    I am working on power analysis and used powertop on x86_64 machines. Can I use powertop on mips also.
    I have installed it but it gives following errors.

    No detailed statistics available; please enable the CONFIG_TIMER_STATS kernel option This option is located in the Kernel Debugging section of menuconfig (which is CONFIG_DEBUG_KERNEL=y in the config file)
    Note: this is only available in 2.6.21 and later kernels

    Suggestion: Enable the CONFIG_NO_HZ kernel configuration option.
    This option is required to get any kind of longer sleep times in the CPU

    How to solve this issue.If we cannot use powertop in mips linux then is there any other tool like powertop in mips



    I’ve no specific knowledge of these power analysis programs however, have you tried re-compiling the kernel with these options on?
