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.
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.

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
