ML 110 HEAT SENSORS and lm-sensors

not sure if this should go here or the linux forum... Does my ML 110 server have heat sensors and fan speed sensors? trying to get them to work with lm-sensors in UBUNTU

Re: ML 110 HEAT SENSORS and lm-sensors

Which generation of ML110 do you have? I have ML110 G3 (Pentium4 3GHz processor, Intel ICH7 motherboard).

This is what "sensors" gives me:
stan:/proc:# sensors
smsc47b397-isa-0a80
Adapter: ISA adapter
temp1: +47 C
temp2: +26 C
temp3: +27 C
temp4: +0 C
fan1: 1866 RPM
fan2: 82 RPM
fan3: 82 RPM
fan4: 2570 RPM

I have kernel 2.6.16.2 and these settings turned on in Device Drivers --> Hardware Monitoring Support: SMSC LPC47B397-NC.
I figured that out by looking closely on what is printed on different chips on motherboard :) Then I found a website of lm-sensors which suggested what module to use for a particular chip.

It looks like both temperatures and fan speeds are reported correctly. If your HDD supports it, you can monitor also it's temperature using S.M.A.R.T. (command cmartctl, package smartmontools on debian, not sure how it is in ubuntu).

Hope this helps.

Re: ML 110 HEAT SENSORS and lm-sensors

The command is: smartctl and not "cmartctl"

Also, there are problems getting the smart values on SATA disk on ML110G3, but this command work great in SCSI disk:

smartctl -a /dev/sda | grep Temp

Thanks for the correction, of course it is smartctl.

I have no problems with SATA drives, just use "smartctl -d ata -a /dev/sda" to get full report of first SATA drive. The "-d" switch tells the program that it should use ATA commands (and not SCSI as the device sda might suggest).

Many thanks Marek,
your answer about:
smartctl -d ata -a /dev/sda
should be put on top of the FAQ !!!

You saved my day!

I was looking for this solutions since 3 years ago, I was thinking it was not posible!
