AbstractIn an embodiment, a processor may include a mesh network and a clock regulation circuit. The mesh network may include multiple mesh stops to operate based on a mesh clock signal. Each mesh stop may include a bandwidth counter to transmit a bandwidth count in response to a pulse of a synchronization signal. The clock regulation circuit may be to: receive a plurality of bandwidth counts from the plurality of mesh stops; aggregate the plurality of bandwidth counts to obtain an aggregated bandwidth value; determine a cycle stealing value based at least on a comparison of the aggregated bandwidth value to at least one threshold value; and gate the mesh clock signal based on the determined cycle stealing value. Other embodiments are described and claimed.
