sensors

THIS MODULE IS OBSOLETE.
USE THE PYTHON ONE - IT SUPPORTS MULTIPLE JOBS AND IT IS MORE EFFICIENT

Unlike the python one, this module can collect temperature on RPi.

The plugin will provide charts for all configured system sensors

This plugin is reading sensors directly from the kernel.
The lm-sensors package is able to perform calculations on the
kernel provided values, this plugin will not perform.
So, the values graphed, are the raw hardware values of the sensors.

The plugin will create netdata charts for:

  1. Temperature
  2. Voltage
  3. Current
  4. Power
  5. Fans Speed
  6. Energy
  7. Humidity

One chart for every sensor chip found and each of the above will be created.

configuration

This is the internal default for /etc/netdata/sensors.conf

# the directory the kernel keeps sensor data
sensors_sys_dir="${NETDATA_HOST_PREFIX}/sys/devices"

# how deep in the tree to check for sensor data
sensors_sys_depth=10

# if set to 1, the script will overwrite internal
# script functions with code generated ones
# leave to 1, is faster
sensors_source_update=1

# how frequently to collect sensor data
# the default is to collect it at every iteration of charts.d
sensors_update_every=

# array of sensors which are excluded
# the default is to include all
sensors_excluded=()
