-Introduction
-------------
-
-Most mainboards have sensor chips to monitor system health (like temperatures,
-voltages, fans speed). They are often connected through an I2C bus, but some
-are also connected directly through the ISA bus.
-
-The kernel drivers make the data from the sensor chips available in the /sys
-virtual filesystem. Userspace tools are then used to display the measured
-values or configure the chips in a more friendly manner.
-
-Lm-sensors
-----------
-
-Core set of utilities that will allow you to obtain health information,
-setup monitoring limits etc. You can get them on their homepage
-http://www.lm-sensors.org/ or as a package from your Linux distribution.
-
-If from website:
-Get lm-sensors from project web site. Please note, you need only userspace
-part, so compile with "make user" and install with "make user_install".
-
-General hints to get things working:
-
-0) get lm-sensors userspace utils
-1) compile all drivers in I2C and Hardware Monitoring sections as modules
- in your kernel
-2) run sensors-detect script, it will tell you what modules you need to load.
-3) load them and run "sensors" command, you should see some results.
-4) fix sensors.conf, labels, limits, fan divisors
-5) if any more problems consult FAQ, or documentation
-
-Other utilities
----------------
-
-If you want some graphical indicators of system health look for applications
-like: gkrellm, ksensors, xsensors, wmtemp, wmsensors, wmgtemp, ksysguardd,
-hardware-monitor
-
-If you are server administrator you can try snmpd or mrtgutils.
