Projects / lm_sensors


lm_sensors provides essential tools for monitoring the temperatures, voltages, and fans of Linux systems with hardware monitoring devices. It contains a library for sensors access (libsensors), a command-line tool for sensor reporting (sensors), and a daemon (sensord). It also contains scripts for sensor hardware identification and fan speed control.

            We have been admittedly slow to announce the 2.8.8 release here. It is done now, thanks for pointing this out.
