radeontop: Specify the display refresh rate (higher means more GPU overhead).
$ radeontop --ticks ${samples_per_second}
try on your machine

The command "radeontop --ticks ${samples_per_second}" is used to run the "radeontop" utility with a specified tick rate.

Here's a breakdown of the command:

  • "radeontop" is the name of the utility being executed. It is a command-line tool used to monitor the performance of Radeon graphics cards on Linux systems.

  • "--ticks" is an option specific to the radeontop utility. It determines the rate at which the utility measures or samples the performance metrics of the GPU.

  • "${samples_per_second}" is a variable that represents the desired number of performance samples to be taken per second. You would replace "${samples_per_second}" with an actual value according to your preference.

By running this command, radeontop will continuously monitor the GPU's performance metrics, such as utilization, temperature, and clock speeds, at the specified tick rate (samples per second).
