Odroid Software

Unread post by SubSonicx » Tue Dec 17, 2019 10:48 pm

Hi
I want to use my odroid as mini heater. So I would need a simple application which will run the odroid with 100% so it produces heat.
Any scripts out there which I could easily install on the mini sd?
Thanks

Shouldn't you be piping that output to /dev/null?

How about using stress-ng to run full 100% of all 8 CPUs resources? :mrgreen:
I usually use this command when I need to check system heavy load
and it makes high temperature condition.

Code: Select all

$ sudo apt-get install stress-ng

Code: Select all

$ stress-ng --cpu 8 --cpu-method matrixprod -t 1y &
But please note that thermal throttling will be activated after this stress-ng command,
so, if you have an active cooling fan on your XU4, the fan will spin soon.

Download the latest Ubuntu 18.04.3 image and fire for heating. ;)

Is that all serious? No joke?
What a waste of resources and money...

99.99% of all users of electronics wants to reduce heat and to higher the efficiency!
To make heat of electricity use a simple lightbulb and you have 98% efficiency...

Perhaps it's an experiment.

At least you could do something "useful" and install BOINC. Then select a project you want to support and your coffeemug will never run cold again ;)
