One of my boxes have had some spontaneous shutdowns lately. I thought I could take a look among the gathered data of munin, to see if I could get a hint on what was going on. Turns out I hadn’t installed and configured munin on the this machine on the last re-install. So…
After installing and configuring munin, I thought I’d install lm-sensors to get some more mainboard temperature monitoring:
- Configuring involves finding out suitable a driver for your mainboards chipset:
- Read and answer the questions, for the most part hitting Enter will suffice. Take note of the last lines of the configuration, where the module for your sensors are displayed:
# Chip drivers
- This information should be added to /etc/modules. This can be automatically added when you run sensors-detect, but I prefer to do it manually. That’s it!
