Installation is complete. Now you are ready to try the real-time readiness checker, one of the tools in Intel® TCC Tools.
In this step, you will run the real-time readiness checker to validate system settings.
Why Use the Real-Time Readiness Checker?
The real-time readiness checker is a command-line tool that checks the many attributes that may affect real-time performance:
Verifies whether the system has a supported processor, boot firmware, and OS
Checks for features that may affect real-time performance, such as Intel® Turbo Boost Technology, Enhanced Intel SpeedStep® Technology, and processor power-saving states
Reports CPU and GPU frequencies
Operates at the UEFI BIOS or OS level
Running the Real-Time Readiness Checker
To run this tool:
From your development host system, reconnect to the target via SSH:
If possible, maximize the terminal window to full size. The real-time readiness checker displays tables of settings that are best viewed in a wide window, though text will wrap and the screen will scroll accordingly.
In the SSH session, run the real-time readiness checker:
tcc_rt_checker | more
In the output, check the Result column for each checker:
If RT_READY or * appears for all checkers, the target system is properly configured.
If NON_RT_READY appears for any checkers, use the command tcc_rt_checker -l for details.
You have successfully used the real-time readiness checker to verify the target system setup and are now ready to begin using other Intel® TCC Tools features to test and optimize your setup. The Next Steps summarizes these tools.
