sensors - printing sensors information
sensors [ options ] [ chips ]
sensors is used to show the current readings of all sensor chips, and
to set all limits as specified in the configuration file.
sensors knows about certain chips, and outputs nicely formatted read-
ings for them; but it can also display the information of unknown
chips, as long as libsensors knows about them.
Specify a configuration file. If no file is specified, the name
‘sensors.conf’ is used. If the name does not contain a directory
slash, or this parameter is not present, the following path is
examined: /etc, /usr/lib/sensors, /usr/local/lib/sensors,
/usr/lib, /usr/local/lib, .
-h Prints a help text
-s Evaluates all ‘set’ statements in the configuration file. You
must probably be ‘root’ to do this. If this parameter is not
specified, no ‘set’ statement is evaluated.
-A Do not show adapter and algorithm for each chipset.
-u Treats all chips as unknown ones. Output will be of much lower
quality; this option is only added for testing purposes.
-v Returns the program version.
-f Prints the temperatures in degrees Fahrenheit instead of Cel-
The system wide configuration file. See sensors.conf(5) for fur-
