SENSORSD.CONF(5)          OpenBSD Programmer's Manual         SENSORSD.CONF(5)

NAME
     sensorsd.conf - configuration file for sensorsd(8)

SYNOPSIS
     sensorsd.conf

DESCRIPTION
     The sensorsd.conf file is read by sensorsd(8) to configure hardware sen-
     sor monitoring.  Each entry represents one sensor and may specify high
     and low limits.  If the sensor data is out of range of the low and the
     high limits, sensorsd(8)'s alert functionality is triggered.

     sensorsd.conf follows the syntax of configuration databases as documented
     in getcap(3).

     Example:

           hw.sensors.0:high=80C
           hw.sensors.1:high=170F
           hw.sensors.2:low=4.8V:high=5.2V
           hw.sensors.3:low=1000:high=8000

     The values for temperature sensors can be given in degrees Celsius or
     Fahrenheit, for voltage sensors in volts, and fan speed sensors take a
     unit-less number representing RPM.

FILES

HISTORY
     The sensorsd.conf file format first appeared in OpenBSD 3.5.
