Yes, there is a command. Detecting sensors First of all, you have to search for sensors: sudo sensors-detect Since lucid lynx, you have to type: sudo service module-init-tools start If you're running another Ubuntu version type: sudo /etc/init.d/module-init-tools start To save the detection results. Displaying sensor data Now, to show the ...

If you want something that does not depend on a desktop: Have a look at lm-sensors . From the description: Lm-sensors is a hardware health monitoring package for Linux. It allows you to access information from temperature, voltage, and fan speed sensors. It works with most newer systems. This package contains programs to help you set up and read data ...

Well found a way to lower the hard drive temperature, had to stay up all night. (Gave a +1 to Ringtail's comment ;) ) Open Dash and type disks. You will see the Disks Utility pop up. Open it. Now select the Hard Drive you wish to work with and then, in the green circle above, there is a button, click on it and select Drive Settings... Depending on ...

I'm wondering what is causing that difference. It mostly depends on what software you run on Windows and on Ubuntu. In general Ubuntu has less software active and Windows tends to pre-load a lot of software during booting to speed things up when the desktop is active. Both might add to lower/higher temps. Can you help me find an answer? Sure but ...

I think it is supposed to be like that. New kernel 3.13 has an advanced dynamic power management of the ATI card with the radeon driver. In normal conditions the ATI discrete is off: [:~/Pictures/2014] 1 % sudo cat /sys/kernel/debug/vgaswitcheroo/switch 0:DIS: :DynOff:0000:01:00.0 1:IGD:+:Pwr:0000:00:02.0 so when we read the sensors: [:~/Pictures/2014] ...

I have here a rather old Thinkpad with a Mobility Radeon HD 3400 series card, having similar problems: The closed-source fglrx driver is almost unusable, due to flickering, glitches, etc with gnome-shell. The open-source radeon driver is working very nice, but the card gets too hot. Checking using cat /proc/acpi/ibm/thermal shows that the card heats up to ...

On this webpage there is a bash script that will attempt to keep your CPU below a specified temperature. http://seperohacker.blogspot.com/2012/10/linux-keep-your-cpu-cool-with-frequency.html You just need to provide it with your desired maximum temperature, and it will throttle your CPU(s) in an effort to stay below that temperature. Shameless plug- I ...

The high temperature is caused by the poor power management of the open source drivers. Installing the latest proprietary drivers would help, if official support for the HD4xxx series hadn't been dropped with Quantal. So you're left with two options: 1.) Install the legacy FGLRX drivers through a custom PPA that ships with an older version of X.ORG. ...

Fans are normally controlled by the hardware in response to temperature, so you don't need to worry about it -- if the system gets too warm, it will speed up the fans automatically. You may be able to setup lm-sensors to detect the fan controller and the fancontrol package to take over, but this is not easy nor a good idea. You would start with running ...

On the Intel site, Link to your CPU, after Tjunction you have 105ºC. This means that it stands up to that temperature. Normal may be a matter of opinion, but for me, normal is between 50ºC to 70ºC for low usage and up to 80ºC if all the processors are working close to 100%. If somehow the 90ºC are passed I would say that something is wrong.

You can use psensor to monitor the computer temperature. This is a GUI application that readout the CPU and Mainboard sensors. sudo apt-get install psensor After starting psensor, go to the "Sensor preference Menu", choose your CPU sensor and click on Alarm - Activate Desktop Notifications. You can modify the temperature limit for your needs.

Depending on your hardware the sensors on your motherboard need additional calibration. Unfortunately the standard values given in /etc/sensors.conf and in /etc/sensors3.conf can only give you rough estimates because of variations in your hardware. However there is nothing that can't be set up. There are many self-explanatory notes in the sensors.conf file ...

For logging of cpu/ram/temperatures/traffic on a server, I recommended Cacti. It is advertised as a 'complete frontend for RRDtool', and can have multipled data sources such as lm-sensors, SNMP or even custom scripts. Data is stored in RRD, and used to create daily, weekly, monthly and yearly graphs. See the Cacti website for more details, screenshots ...

If it has been a year, then it is time to clean the dust out again, and make sure that the fan is spinning correctly. If there is no significant dust and the fan is spinning ( at the correct speed ), then you may try removing the heatsink, cleaning and reapplying the thermal paste. You also might try the boot option pcie_aspm=force as some people have ...

I created a program just for this problem. Limit your CPU based on a desired temperature. It runs like this: sudo ./temp_throttle.sh 80 That command will make your CPU cores slow down when they reach 80 degrees Celsius. You can find temp_throttle here.
