Lm_sensors - Linux hardware monitoring

About this project

This is the home page for the effort of building and providing some essential tools for monitoring the hardware health of Linux systems containing hardware health monitoring hardware such as the LM78 and LM75. Read more here.

This ongoing project includes general libraries and hardware-specific software. Much of the work done could not have been done without the many knowledgable programmers who laid down the foundation.

Call to Device Manufacturers: Our efforts are now concentrated on adding support for new devices. If you wish to send us samples, datasheets, or project donations (hardware, software, etc.), please drop us an email.

Latest news

  • June 6th, 2009: Hardware donations welcome. We are a little short on hardware to properly support lm-sensors development, especially for the most recent hardware monitoring devices. If you or your company is willing to help the lm-sensors project, please consider the donation of a mainboard with CPU and memory. Contact us if you want to send anything.
  • February 28th, 2009: 3.1.0 Released! This release includes  many improvements, in particular to libsensors and sensors-detect. Get it from the Download page. Check the top of the CHANGES file for a detailed list of user-visible changes.
  • January 26th, 2009: SVN branches renamed. We have renamed the SVN branches to better reflect their current state. The old trunk is now known as branch lm-sensors-2.10 and is in maintenance mode, while the old branch lm-sensors-3.0.0, where all the development was happening, is now known as trunk. Use  svn switch to update your local repositories.
  • December 16th, 2008: 2.10.8 Released! Get it from the Download page. Check the top of the CHANGES file for a detailed list of user-visible changes. This release solves a minor compatibility issue with kernel 2.6.28 (only affecting users of the it87 driver.)
  • October 27th, 2008: The i2c mailing list is  moving to  kernel.org.
  • September 28th, 2008: 3.0.3 Released! This is a maintenance release with improvements to sensors-detect and pwmconfig. Get it from the Download page. Check the top of the CHANGES file for a detailed list of user-visible changes.
  • July 1st, 2008: 2.10.7 Released! Get it from the Download page. Check the top of the CHANGES file for a detailed list of user-visible changes. This release solves a compatibility issue with kernel 2.6.26.
  • May 18th, 2008: 3.0.2 Released! This release adds support for virtual hardware monitoring devices, and should prevent the hardware issues that had been reported in the past few weeks when running sensors-detect. Upgrading is highly recommended. Get it from the Download page. Check the top of the CHANGES file for a detailed list of user-visible changes.
  • May 12th, 2008: Note to Sapphire AM2RD790 and DFI Lanparty UT 790FX owners: we have had a report that  running sensors-detect on a Sapphire AM2RD790-based system could kill the CPU. The same problem was also reported on a  DFI Lanparty UT 790FX, which is essentially the same motherboard. Please read this before running sensors-detect on these boards.
  • March 6th, 2008: 2.10.6 Released! This is a maintenance release for the legacy branch. It includes all the fixes we gathered in the past 5 months. See the CHANGES document for details.
  • January 28th, 2008: 3.0.1 Released! Check the top of the CHANGES file for a detailed list of user-visible changes. The most important change is certainly the fact that  libsensors no longer depends on libsysfs. This change made the library initialization 4 times faster, amongst other benefits. Get it from the Download page.
