Re: CPU temperature monitoring

Hi John,

lm_sensors don't need to build a new kernel. Maybe you have to build new kernel-modules. But if you don't have a to exoctic mainboard the modules should work.

If you are using RedHat install the lm_sensors.rpm from 1st CD and start sensor-detect.

Thanks for the response Frank but I couldn't find the rpm on any of the CD's....I'll have a search on the web....

Hi John,

I'm using RedHat 7.2 and it's on the 1st CD.

Re: CPU temperature monitoring

Hi All, Just been thinking of temperature monitoring of a range of HP servers for data collection. We are working on rack spacing and heat removal for our data centres and I am hoping to set up a monitoring system for our server CPUâ s as an experiment. I see some notes on the subject and an hoping somebody got a system running and would like to share the information on setting up such a system over a LAN. Kind regards

Re: CPU temperature monitoring

If it's an HP server running Linux, install HP's monitoring daemon package. That'll build and load a kernel module and start a few daemons. You can then get temp (and lots of other stuff) via their web interface or just read /proc/cpqtemp directly (like all^wmost /proc files it's just text).
