Hi guys.

I'm using a RT-AC86U and tried to see the actual CPU core frequency through CPUinfo, but it isn't available.
CPUinfo only shows 100 for BogoMIPS.


# cat /proc/cpuinfo
processor : 0
BogoMIPS : 100.00
Features : fp asimd evtstrm aes pmull sha1 sha2 crc32
CPU implementer : 0x42
CPU architecture: 8
CPU variant : 0x0
CPU part : 0x100
CPU revision : 0

processor : 1
BogoMIPS : 100.00
Features : fp asimd evtstrm aes pmull sha1 sha2 crc32
CPU implementer : 0x42
CPU architecture: 8
CPU variant : 0x0
CPU part : 0x100
CPU revision : 0
Reading about BogoMIPS, it seems to be reflecting the timer frequency, not the CPU's core frequency.

Trying NVRAM does not show core frequency as well.

# nvram get clkfreq
#

So, I tried greping with DMESG but could not see any CPU frequency.

# dmesg | grep --color CPU

Where can I find the actual CPU core frequency?
And where does the WEBUI collects it?

Thanks
