    I don't know about fan speeds, but there is a good Linux tool for testing throttling, namely, 's-tui'. The program can be a pain to install. Here is how I did it (and this method installs the program as root, which in this case is good because some of the program's feature's need root access).

  • GitHub repo alive-progress

    Project mention: I am a proficient Python coder whose learning has plateaued. Any really useful libraries I should look into learning? Taking recommendations. | | 2021-04-16

    And here are some libraries that might pique your interest although they don't strictly answer your question: - tqdm for adding a progress bar on for loops (it comes with useful information like iteration per second and estimated time needed to finish) - alive_progress adds a progress bar like tqdm, but it works even with generators and while loops which I don't think tqdm does. -timebudget, with just a decorator as soon as a function is completed it prints the time taken to execute it - send2trash for sending files to the trash bin instead of permanently deleting them - keyboard for sending keyboard inputs or check if a key is pressed - mouse same as keyboard but with mouse buttons - textract for extracting text from many types of file with a single interface. It supports documents, powerpoint presentations, csv, excels, images, gifs, audio, and many more
