NAMEsensors - print sensors information
SYNOPSISsensors [ options ] [ chips ]
sensors -s [ options ] [ chips ]
DESCRIPTIONsensors 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.
- -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.
- Print a help text and exit.
- 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.
- Do not show the adapter for each chip.
- Hide unknown chips.
- Treat all chips as unknown ones. Output will be of much lower quality; this option is only added for testing purposes.
- Print the program version and exit.
- Print the temperatures in degrees Fahrenheit instead of Celsius.
- The system wide configuration file. See sensors.conf(5) for further details.
