    Label problems lm_sensors

    Hi,

    I have tried to get the labels right when I run "sensors". I get the processor temps right, but then it gets bad. Temp1, 2 and temp1 again (nouvea-pci-0100). It's confusing. I have tried to read the FAQ at the homepage of lm_sensors, and printed out the sensors3.conf. To no avail. There is 8 pages of "chips". Has anybody a clue how to edit this document so the output gets understandable when I run "sensors"?

    Re: Label problems lm_sensors

    What exactly do want the temps for.
    cpu or gpu.
    My output from sensors....
    Code:
    glen@Raring:~$ sensors
    nouveau-pci-0100
    Adapter: PCI adapter
    temp1:        +42.0C  (high = +95.0C, crit = +105.0C)
    
    it8720-isa-0228
    Adapter: ISA adapter
    in0:          +1.26 V  (min =  +0.00 V, max =  +4.08 V)
    in1:          +1.92 V  (min =  +0.00 V, max =  +4.08 V)
    in2:          +3.38 V  (min =  +0.00 V, max =  +4.08 V)
    +5V:          +3.01 V  (min =  +0.00 V, max =  +4.08 V)
    in4:          +3.09 V  (min =  +0.00 V, max =  +4.08 V)
    in5:          +1.46 V  (min =  +0.00 V, max =  +4.08 V)
    in6:          +3.38 V  (min =  +0.00 V, max =  +4.08 V)
    5VSB:         +3.02 V  (min =  +0.00 V, max =  +4.08 V)
    Vbat:         +3.25 V  
    fan1:        2836 RPM  (min =    0 RPM)
    fan2:           0 RPM  (min =    0 RPM)
    fan3:        1180 RPM  (min =    0 RPM)
    fan5:           0 RPM  (min =    0 RPM)
    temp1:        +40.0C  (low  = +127.0C, high = +127.0C)  sensor = thermistor
    temp2:        +44.0C  (low  = +127.0C, high = +127.0C)  sensor = thermal diode
    temp3:        +80.0C  (low  = +127.0C, high = +127.0C)  sensor = thermistor
    cpu0_vid:    +1.250 V
    intrusion0:  ALARM
    
    k10temp-pci-00c3
    Adapter: PCI adapter
    temp1:        +37.4C  (high = +70.0C)
                           (crit = +72.0C, hyst = +70.0C)
    This terminal command gives my GPU temp...
    Code:
    sensors nouveau-pci-0100 | grep temp1 | awk '{print $2}' | cut -c2-3
    eg
    Code:
    glen@Raring:~$ sensors nouveau-pci-0100 | grep temp1 | awk '{print $2}' | cut -c2-3
    42
    I don't think sensors can acurately determine what each sensor is for, it just searches and lists them.

    For my cpu temps I check the bios cpu temps and then test a sensor I think it might be
    by running the sensor in a loop and opening some cpu intensive
    apps like software center and system monitor.

    The loop shows the temp going up about 5 degrees as the apps open.
    eg
    Code:
    glen@Raring:~$ while [ 1 ]; do sensors k10temp-pci-00c3 | grep temp1; sleep 1; done
    temp1:        +31.0C  (high = +70.0C)
    temp1:        +31.5C  (high = +70.0C)
    temp1:        +34.0C  (high = +70.0C)
    temp1:        +34.5C  (high = +70.0C)
    temp1:        +35.0C  (high = +70.0C)
    temp1:        +36.5C  (high = +70.0C)
    temp1:        +36.5C  (high = +70.0C)
    temp1:        +36.4C  (high = +70.0C)
    temp1:        +36.5C  (high = +70.0C)
    temp1:        +36.4C  (high = +70.0C)
    Then I can use...
    Code:
    sensors k10temp-pci-00c3 | grep temp1 | awk '{print $2}' | cut -c2-3
    to give my cpu temp

    Re: Label problems lm_sensors

    Your output from sensors are almost the same as mine, when it comes to detecting temp on different termistors and diodes. But which sensors are below the fans:
    fan1: 2836 RPM (min = 0 RPM)
    fan2: 0 RPM (min = 0 RPM)
    fan3: 1180 RPM (min = 0 RPM)
    fan5: 0 RPM (min = 0 RPM)
    temp1: +40.0C (low = +127.0C, high = +127.0C) sensor = thermistor
    temp2: +44.0C (low = +127.0C, high = +127.0C) sensor = thermal diode
    temp3: +80.0C (low = +127.0C, high = +127.0C) sensor = thermistor

    and is it possible to label those as motherboard etc?

    Re: Label problems lm_sensors

    I don't know how to change the actual output of sensors.
    I look in the BIOS where it tells which fan is for cpu etc
    and my cpu temp.

    Then use that info to display what I want to monitor in conky
    using the commands I posted earlier to grab the temp or fanspeed of a particular sensor,
    thus creating my own labels for the sensor ouputs.
    Pic 2. Conky using sensors info.

    There is also indicator-sensors, an application indicator which enables
    you to change the label shown wthinin the application. Pic1
