but whenever I'm trying to use it as ./power_gadget [-e [sampling_delay_ms ] optional] -d duration] I get the error that RAPL not supported or machine model 506e3 not recognized Can anybody tell me how to fix this ?


Solution:1

I can recommend an alternative. It is a program we have been working on called s-tui. It shows, it part, the power usage of the CPU if your CPU supports it (Intel CPUs 2nd Core gen and newer).
Installation is explained on the github page s-tui on github

Here is a screenshot of what it looks like: enter image description here


Solution:2

enter image description here

It shows utilization and frequency but power and temperature are not there
