Finding CPU temperature on Fedora 14

One of our servers was so hot, so I want to know the temperature of its CPU.

Install lm_sensors package
# yum install lm_sensors

Check the temperature
# sensors
No sensors found!
Make sure you loaded all the kernel drivers you need.
Try sensors-detect to find out which these are.

Execute sensors-detect command, anwser all the question
# sensors-detect
… …

Check the temperature again
# sensors
Adapter: ISA adapter
Core 0:       +60.0°C  (high = +85.0°C, crit = +95.0°C)

Adapter: ISA adapter
Core 1:       +59.0°C  (high = +85.0°C, crit = +95.0°C)

Adapter: ISA adapter
Core 9:       +56.0°C  (high = +85.0°C, crit = +95.0°C)
… …



  1. Thank you

  2. Works great. Even though it found a sensor, it was not the cpu sensor. But by running the sensors-detect, it found the cpu sensors.
