mbmon - MotherBoard Monitor
mbmon [options] <seconds for sleep> (default 5 sec)
This manual page documents briefly the mbmon command. This manual page
was written for the Debian distribution because the original program
does not have a manual page.
Recent motherboards have functionalities to monitor the CPU
temperatures and the frequency of CPU cooling fans etc. Although some
programs utilizing these hardware monitoring facilities have been
developed for the Microsoft Windows platforms, no programs seem to
exist for PC-UNIX and the X Windows System platforms.
mbmon used at the command line reports the temperatures, voltages and
rpm (rounds per minute) of cooling fans. It can also be used remotely
via telnet, thanks to the "-P" option.
-h Show summary of options.
-V, -S, -I, -A
Access method (using "VIA686 HWM directly"|"SMBus"|"ISA I/O
port"|"All this methods").
-d Debug mode (any other options except (V|S|I) will be ignored).
set extra temperature sensor to temp. Need -A.
For probing chips.
-Y For Tyan Tiger MP/MPX motherboard.
-f Display temperature in Fahrenheit.
Repeat <count> times and exit.
Run in daemon mode, using given port for clients.
print Temperature|Fanspeed according to following styles:
-r Print TAG and Value format.
-u Print system uptime.
-t Print present time.
-n, -N print hostname (long|short style).
