    Default Help--Wattsup and System Power

    I've installed Phoronix Test Suite on my Linux machine (Ubuntu 12.04). When I type "phoronix-test-suite system-sensors," the System Power Consumption is listed under "Unsupported Sensors." I have a Wattsup Pro Power meter connected to my machine and I have also installed the Linux Utility found on the Wattsup website under Support. How can I get the Phoronix Test Suite to receive data from the Wattsup Pro?
    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thank you.

    Compile the WattsUp utility and then place it at /usr/bin/wattsup and then PTS should be able to detect it with system-sensors command or when setting the export MONITOR=all environment variable during benchmarking.

    I've tried that and it still doesn't seem to be working... any suggestions?

    The wattsup binary should be at /usr/bin, not some folder. Either rename the existing wattsup binary if that works or: gcc wattsup.c -o wattsup and toss that in /usr/bin.

    Thank you, that worked! Is there a way to see the exact numbers rather than just the graphs? I was hoping to use Phoronix Test Suite partly as a data logger for the Wattsup Meter and would like to find a way to see the numbers used to produce the graph.

    All the raw data is within the XML file.

    I'm sorry if my question seems incredibly mundane or stupid. But I'm having difficulty with this...how many I access this XML file? And will the XML file show both the time and power data?

    Try looking in ~/.phoronix-test-suite/test-results/
    Find the name of your test and there should be an XML file that you can cat to look at
