Find out details about your system’s temperature

By | April 14, 2010

To find out more about your system’s temperature, install acpi. Then do a simple

acpi -V

to get a listing similar to this one:

Battery 0: Full, 100%
Battery 0: design capacity 7800 mAh, last full capacity 4988 mAh = 63%
Adapter 0: on-line
Thermal 0: ok, 63.5 degrees C
Thermal 0: trip point 0 switches to mode critical at temperature 126.0 degrees C
Cooling 0: Processor 0 of 10
Cooling 1: Processor 0 of 10

    Is there any way to know what is thermal 0 and 1 ?

    CPU? GPU? MB? Core0? Core1?

    I don’t know what it is. cat /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THM/temperature reports a temperature of 67 degrees while Thermal 0 displays a temperature of 65.5, so I guess we can rule the CPU out.
