This suggests you haven't actually built the documentation with your
change and verified that you got the result you were after.  Literal
blocks need to be indented.

Thanks,

You mean I should print the result with the command? Something like
this:
#intel-speed-select --oob
Intel(R) Speed Select Technology
OOB mode is enabled and will run as daemon

I will submit v2.

Thanks,

No, I meant building the docs and verifying that they looked right.

That said, adding the output seems fine...

Thanks,

+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+
+It is possible to change SST-PP level using out of band (OOB) agent (Via some
+remote management console, through BMC "Baseboard Management Controller"

+In this mode the tool will online/offline CPUs based on the new performance

 Check presence of other Intel(R) SST features
