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.
Release Notes: Support for humidity sensors was added to "sensors". sensors-detect no longer probes I2C adapters on graphics cards by default.
Release Notes: Support for many sub-features was added to libsensors and sensors. Sysfs detection was fixed to keep working after a sysfs implementation change in upcoming kernels. Printing of power sensors was improved. Memory leaks were fixed in sensord. Detection of new chips was added to sensors-detect.
Release Notes: Detection of new devices was added to sensors-detect.
Release Notes: Support for chassis intrusion detection and humidity sensors was added, as well as many new attributes for existing sensor types.
Release Notes: The libsensors license was changed from GPL to LGPL. Minor bugs were fixed in libsensors, pwmconfig, sensors, and sensord. The sensors-detect script knows more chips than ever.
