coretemp -- device driver for Intel Core on-die digital thermal sensor


To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following line in your kernel configuration file: device coretemp Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in loader.conf(5): coretemp_load="YES"


The coretemp driver provides support for the on-die digital thermal sen- sor present in Intel Core and newer CPUs. The values are exposed through the HW_SENSORS sysctl(3) tree. For example: %sysctl hw.sensors hw.sensors.cpu0.temp0: 28.00 degC hw.sensors.cpu1.temp0: 29.00 degC


systat(1), sysctl(3), sensorsd(8), sysctl(8)


The coretemp driver first appeared in FreeBSD 7.0.


The coretemp driver was written by Rui Paulo <rpaulo@FreeBSD.org> as part of a Google Summer of Code project. This manual page was written by Dag-Erling Smorgrav <des@FreeBSD.org>. DragonFly 4.1 June 3, 2011 DragonFly 4.1
