What exactly does socket0-package-power measure?

Hello, how are you?


I'm doing power benchmarks on some artificial intelligence algorithms and noticed a weird pattern when using the AMD Uprof CLI. After measuring the timechart for power usage, I noticed that the total usage of all cores are never equal to the socket0-package-power so I want to know if this counter accounts for something else besides the core power, maybe L1 cache? The socket0-package-power is always some Watts above the sum of the cores power.


Thank you
