Measure Raspberry Pi CPU / GPU / Core / SD clock speeds and check whether you are undervolted
# This bash script outputs the status of your Pi and checks whether you are being throttled for undervoltage and gives you your temperature

# Output current configuration
vcgencmd get_config int | egrep "(arm|core|gpu|sdram)_freq|over_volt"
# Measure clock speeds

# Measure Volts
for id in core sdram_c sdram_i sdram_p ; do echo -e "$id:\t$(vcgencmd measure_volts $id)"; done
# Measure Temperature

Useful script! I had to add the path to vcgencmd (/opt/vc/bin/) for it to work on my systems. Thanks for the great work.
