  • Monitoring temperature

    Hi,

    I'm trying to generate graphs of GPU and CPU temperatures while running benchmarks, and I've run into a small issue - when I prefix commands with:
    MONITOR=all
    it does register all of the available sensors, however that's a lot more info than I need, and would clutter the results when I make them public on OpenBenchmarking.org. I'd like to just choose a few sensors for monitoring.

    Now I'm trying to figure out what I need to set the MONITOR variable to, in order to monitor just temperatures and CPU/GPU/RAM usage.

    Here's my output for:
    $ phoronix-test-suite system-sensors

    - GPU Voltage
    - Drive Temperature
    - Network Usage
    - System Fan Speed

    - System Voltage



    So far I've figured out (through trial and error) that the following gives me most of what I need:
    MONITOR=gpu.temp,cpu.usage.summary,gpu.usage,memor y.usage

    However, I still can't figure out the label for System Temperature. I tried:
    system.temperature, system.temperature.monitor, system.temp, system.t, system.temperature0, system.temp0, and probably a few other combinations, to no avail...
    (when running MONITOR=all, it is labeled System Temperature Monitor on the graph).

    I couldn't find anything specific in the documentation, on the web, nor in the forums, so help would be appreciated

    PS.: I'm running those tests because I'm trying to build a silent PC, which can run under full load for hours, while maintaining reasonable temperatures, yet have fans spinning slow enough to remain inaudible. Thus, I'm using only 140 mm fans, 9 total (6 case, 2 CPU cooler, 1 PSU fan), and a passive GTX 1050 Ti KalmX graphics card, and trying out which fan configuration / speed profile will result in best cooling while maintaining the lowest noise.

    You can do MONITOR=all.usage or here are some other examples: MONITOR=cpu.usage,gpu.temp,cpu.temp,gpu.usage etc

      ... eh... now moments after posting this, I realized there's one more thing I haven't tried... and it works:

      sys.temp

      I guess whoever wrote the code likes three letter acronyms

        Nope, don't remember the reason I used three letters for the MONITOR var... Though I could rather easily make it more liberal in what it allows for input to match, so say system.temperature.
