    monitor cpu temp


    This is a n00bish question, so please have patience.

    I was trying to find a simple bash utility that will tell me cpu temperature and possibly other useful details. I think my fan is not working very well, and so I want to monitor cpu temperature.

    Does anyone know of any particular programs that are part of bash? I'm assuming there should be something built in, but googling has not helped me.

    Not in bash itself, no. Try the lm_sensors package. Running it from bash gives you output like this:

    Code:
    it8712-isa-0290
    Adapter: ISA adapter
    VCore 1:   +1.70 V  (min =  +0.00 V, max =  +4.08 V)   
    VCore 2:   +2.69 V  (min =  +0.00 V, max =  +4.08 V)   
    +3.3V:     +3.30 V  (min =  +0.00 V, max =  +4.08 V)   
    +5V:       +4.25 V  (min =  +0.00 V, max =  +6.85 V)   
    +12V:     +11.52 V  (min =  +0.00 V, max = +16.32 V)   
    -12V:     -15.70 V  (min = -27.36 V, max =  +3.93 V)   
    -5V:       -7.96 V  (min = -13.64 V, max =  +4.03 V)   
    Stdby:     +4.70 V  (min =  +0.00 V, max =  +6.85 V)   
    VBat:      +4.08 V
    fan1:     3375 RPM  (min =    0 RPM, div = 8)          
    fan2:     2008 RPM  (min =    0 RPM, div = 8)          
    fan3:        0 RPM  (min =    0 RPM, div = 8)          
    M/B Temp:    +33C  (low  =  +127C, high =  +127C)   sensor = thermistor   
    CPU Temp:    +30C  (low  =  +127C, high =  +127C)   sensor = thermistor   
    Temp3:       +55C  (low  =  +127C, high =  +127C)   sensor = diode
