Many Galactic black holes and neutron stars sources in Low-Mass X-Ray Binaries (LMXBs) exhibit quasi-periodic oscillations (QPOs) in the observed X-ray fluxes in their peaks. There are models of high frequency QPOs (HF QPOs) that relate this oscillatory motion to the properties of accretion disk formed in the vicinity of a compact object. Our interest is the study this phenomena in the black holes systems, since this HF QPO peaks are usually detected for a given source at constant frequencies ratio of small natural numbers, typically in a 3 : 2 ratio. In this work, we are considering a static and axially symmetric spacetime parametrized by a quadrupole and analyses the interplay between different parameters in this setup considering various HF QPO models.
