Installing lm-sensors

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 moreĀ  mainboard temperature monitoring:

  • Installing:
sudo apt-get install lm-sensors


  • Configuring involves finding out suitable a driver for your mainboards chipset:
sudo sensors-detect
