Monitor Onboard Computer Temperature

From MobileRobots Research and Academic Customer Support

Jump to: navigation, search

In Linux, you can monitor the internal temperature sensors of a Versalogic EBX-37 (Mamba) computer using lm-sensors.

Use the command-line tool sensors as root to view temperatures of the CPU cores and other computer components:


Use the -f option to see temperatures in Farenheit:

sensors -f

sensors requires the lm90 and coretemp Linux kernel driver modules to be loaded. These are configured to automatically load in systems installed and shipped by MobileRobots after June 24, 2012. If you have an older installation or have done an installation or reinstallation yourself, add the driver module names to /etc/modules to automatically load them at boot or use modprobe to manually load them.

A Gnome panel applet is available in the graphical user interface to monitor temperature and fan sensors as well (sensors applet).
