    Sort of. It's basically a gui that lets you overclock, create fan curves, monitor frequencies/temperature, generate graphs, and run executables with environment variables. Most of it is simple and self explanatory, but a few of the functions you have to configure yourself.

    Is it something similar to MSI Overdrive?

    Thanks, now i found it...

    I'm stuck with the installation of radeon-profile and need some help
    So far everything worked fine and I was able to compile it. So usually I should be able to start it by typing radeon-profile to the terminal? However, this does not work, it just says "No such file or directory".
    So far I always used the version from gogo and installed by apt install, but the version is outdated. Therefore I tried to compile a newer one.
    I am using Pop OS 19.04 (based on Ubuntu 19.04). But I also tried it in Ubuntu 19.04 and 18.04 and it did not work. Maybe it is just me?

    This is what I get when I do "make": https://textuploader.com/1dt60 (sorry for the link but the text ist too long for the forum).

    There are two ways to read card clocks. One is using system calls (ioctl) and the other one is reading file from debugfs. Most of the time debugfs access is restricted and normal user cannot read it. When you enable that option, daemon read values from debugfs file (since it runs as root) and send contents of it to the radeon-profile where values are displayed.

    Just updated to Disco Dingo and finally got around to compile the latest radeon-profile + daemon. Everything seems to work fine. Overclocking, fan control, etc. However, I have been experiencing and odd issue.
    After a while (seems random) radeon-profile sort of stops working. The overclock and fan control tabs become greyed out and the program no longer reads frequencies. At this point the fan returns to the default profile but my overclock seems to stay active. The only way to get it working again is exiting the program completely and launching it again.

    Edit: Ran radeon-profile through a terminal and monitored it until it failed. All I get in the terminal is a bunch of the following entries:

    Unable to open "/sys/class/drm/card0/device/hwmon/hwmon0/pwm1" to write "214"

    The overclock and fan control tabs are greyed out, and so are the power profile buttons at the side. It does read the gpu frequencies and everything else, but the fan returns to its default profile.

    Hi, this issue is tracked here: https://github.com/marazmista/radeon-profile/issues/123

    Did you try enabling the configuration option "use daemon as data provider"? I was running radeon-profile for almost the whole day like that and it did not produce errors. Will test it some more this next weekend.
    yep, that option is checked and the daemon runs fine. Its not like it crashes or something. simply restarting radeon-profile helps while I have nothing to change regarding the daemon
