Intel Releases Linux Thermal Daemon
Intel has announced the release of an open-source Linux Thermal Daemon package for Linux. Intel's Linux Thermal Daemon is for monitoring and controlling platform temperatures.
An Intel representative contacting Phoronix on behalf of their Open-Source Technology Center explains:
The demand for high performance in increasingly thinner and smaller computing systems such as laptops, ultrabooks and tablets creates the need for more ways to manage and control system heat dissipation. Common techniques for heat dissipation include heat sinks, fans, and other forms of cooling devices, but, as system form factors shrink, it’s not efficient to just rely on traditional hardware, BIOS and OSPM methods to cool the system.This project has been in the works since last December and the first code drop is now available at Intel OTC's 01.org.
For those wanting more details on the Intel Linux Thermal Daemon, there's more within the project's documentation.
