Linux machine sensors collector
Reads system sensors information (temperature, voltage, electric current, power, etc.).
Charts are created dynamically.
python.d/sensors.conf configuration file using
edit-config from the Netdata config
directory, which is typically at
cd /etc/netdata # Replace this path with your Netdata config directory, if different
sudo ./edit-config python.d/sensors.conf
There have been reports from users that on certain servers, ACPI ring buffer errors are printed by the kernel (
when ACPI sensors are being accessed. We are tracking such cases in
issue #827. Please join this discussion for help.
lm-sensors doesn't work on your device (e.g. for RPi temperatures),
use the legacy bash collector
To troubleshoot issues with the
sensors module, run the
python.d.plugin with the debug option enabled. The
output will give you the output of the data collection job or error messages on why the collector isn't working.
First, navigate to your plugins directory, usually they are located under
/usr/libexec/netdata/plugins.d/. If that's
not the case on your system, open
netdata.conf and look for the setting
plugins directory. Once you're in the
plugin's directory, switch to the
sudo su -s /bin/bash netdata
Now you can manually run the
sensors module in debug mode:
./python.d.plugin sensors debug trace
