Install the Intel® SoC Watch Collector

If you need to collect energy data on one system and you wish to view the results on another system, you need to install the Intel SoC Watch collector.
  1. Copy the
    package to the target Linux* system. The package can be found in the following locations on the host system with Intel System Studio installed:
    • On Linux systems:

    directory is created.
