How many interrupts does my cpu have per second?

I have a 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7 running Linux. I am wondering how many interrupts on average my CPU gets per second.

Does anyone have a suggestion?

If you are using Linux you can

cat /proc/interrupts

And read the info with this page:


cat the file every second to see how the counters have changed and then calculate an average.
