CPU Temperature in Ubuntu Server using lm-sensors

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

We can all use programs of many flavours to monitor, plot and manage temperatures in our boxes. Sometimes however, you just want to see ‘What is the temp NOW?’. lm-sensors makes this extremely easy. Simply do the following to get a quick view of your temps (Tested on Ubuntu 10.04 and 8.04 LTS).

# Log in as ‘root’
 
sudo bash
 
# Install the lm-sensors package
 
apt-get install lm-sensors
 
# After the install completes, run the following command and answer YES to all questions
 
sensors-detect
 
# You can now view temperatures for your machine by typing the following
 
sensors

Obviously, lm-sensors can do waaaaaaay more than only this. For more info I suggest looking at the documentation.

Cheers peeps,

Share and Enjoy !
