temperature monitoring redhat fedora core 3 with asus A8V board

BlogsNow started crashing. I wonder if it is the CPU temperature. Since I am a 5000 miles away from the computer I needed something to measure the temperature. This was harder to google to than it should be. In the end it was as simple as:


yum install lm_sensors
/etc/rc.d/init.d/lm_sensors start

sensors-detect
[accept all defaults]

sensors
[will output what the machine feels like]

now I need to copy this to another machine and then I know what happens when the machine dies.

A super simple monitoring way is to create an executable cgi file in your webservers path like this:

#!/bin/bash
echo Content-type: text/plain
echo ""
date
sensors

And then you wget / cron on a different machine to get the status and pipe it to one file …
