Linux machine sensors monitoring with Netdata

Reads system sensors information (temperature, voltage, electric current, power, etc.).

Charts are created dynamically.


Edit the python.d/sensors.conf configuration file using edit-config from the Netdata config directory, which is typically at /etc/netdata.

cd /etc/netdata   # Replace this path with your Netdata config directory, if different
sudo ./edit-config python.d/sensors.conf

possible issues

There have been reports from users that on certain servers, ACPI ring buffer errors are printed by the kernel (dmesg) when ACPI sensors are being accessed. We are tracking such cases in issue #827. Please join this discussion for help.

When lm-sensors doesn't work on your device (e.g. for RPi temperatures), use the legacy bash collector
