NAME

       sensors - printing sensors information


SYNOPSIS

       sensors [ options ] [ chips ]



DESCRIPTION

       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.



OPTIONS

       -c config-file
              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-
              sius.


FILES

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