Xeon p4 shut down due to overheating (Examined/Solved - lm-sensors 2.6.3-5/linux 2.4.18-smp)
|Reported by:||contact||Owned by:||somebody|
Recently added a second xeon p4 1.7 processor to our workstation at same time
added lm-sensors package. After about 5 min of heavy use the computer would
shut down due to a "thermal event" Dell replaced the cpus twice and then the
motherboard (service contracts are nice). After carefully rereading the docs, I
see that xeon support is alpha. My computer is reading 2 temp numbers for each
processor, I believe it is the second higher number that is triggering the
shutdown. Any ideas on disabling this? I could set the temp limit higher, but
is this the right thing to do?
Sorry, I forgot to mention that I'm talking about the adm1021(max1617) chip.
# I2C module options
alias char-major-89 i2c-dev
options adm1021 ignore=1,0x18
Also, how do the original max and min values for this chip get set
(min=20,max=60)? The 'set' statement for this chip is commented out
sensors.conf. I guess what I'm asking is, how is that the computer
without the lm-sensors modules, but upon inserting adm1021 into the
computer is now poised to shutdown after several minutes of hard cpu
--- The xeon looks like a adm1021 with only one sensor instead of two.
We should probably do a separate driver but we haven't yet.
The adm1021 driver sets the initial limits, it's hardcoded.
And there's currently no way to change it or disable the
initialization other than recompiling. Sorry.
If you either change the limits in the driver or
uncomment the limits in sensors.conf and run
sensors -s after inserting the module you should be OK.
You may wish to contact
Philip Pokorny <ppokorny@…>,
he has a separate driver he is working on.
