NAME

sensors - print sensors information

SYNOPSIS

sensors [ options ] [ chips ]
sensors -s [ chips ]

DESCRIPTION

sensors is used to show the current readings of all sensor chips.
sensors -s is used to set all limits as specified in the configuration file.

sensors knows about certain chips, and outputs nicely formatted readings for them; but it can also display the information of unknown chips, as long as libsensors knows about them.

OPTIONS

TagDescription
-c config-file Specify a configuration file. If no file is specified, ‘/etc/sensors.conf’ is used. Use ‘-c /dev/null’ to temporarily disable this default configuration file.
-h Print a help text and exit.
-s Evaluate all ‘set’ statements in the configuration file and exit. You must be ‘root’ to do this. If this parameter is not specified, no ‘set’ statement is evaluated.
-A Do not show the adapter for each chip.
-U Hide unknown chips.
-u Treat all chips as unknown ones. Output will be of much lower quality; this option is only added for testing purposes.
-v Print the program version and exit.
-f Print the temperatures in degrees Fahrenheit instead of Celsius.

FILES

/etc/sensors.conf The system wide configuration file. See sensors.conf(5) for further details.
