ACPIFAN(4)                 Kernel Interfaces Manual                 ACPIFAN(4)

NAME
     acpifan -- ACPI Fan

SYNOPSIS
     acpifan* at acpi?

DESCRIPTION
     The acpifan device driver supports fans possibly exposed by the BIOS.
     Even if a system contains only one physical fan, multiple acpifan
     instances may be present.  In such cases each acpifan typically
     represents an acpitz(4) thermal zone, and the combined state of all
     instances reveals the speed of the fan.

     The acpifan driver does not support controlling the fan.  The current
     state (on or off) is made available through the envsys(4) API and the
     envstat(8) command.

SEE ALSO
     acpi(4), acpitz(4)

HISTORY
     The acpifan device driver appeared in NetBSD 6.0.

BUGS
     The acpifan driver does not yet support additional functionality
     introduced in the ACPI 4.0 specification.
