NAME
       rdmsr - tool for reading CPU machine specific registers (MSR)

SYNOPSIS
       rdmsr [options] regno

DESCRIPTION
       rdmsr  is  a  tool  used for reading a CPU's machine specific registers
       (MSR).
       Note: if you're running a Debian kernel, be sure that the msr.ko kernel
       module is loaded. 'modprobe msr' should do the trick. Otherwise, you'll
       get an error about rdmsr not being able to open files in /dev/cpu/...
