Earlier today, cnst@ committed updates to the sensorsd framework. Sensors that provide sensor status are automatically monitored, but they can be set to be ignored. There's also better flexibility with the old-style sensors.
Commit message below.
CVSROOT: /cvs Module name: src Changes by: cnst a t cvs openbsd org 2007/05/30 01:49:37 Modified files: usr.sbin/sensorsd: sensorsd.8 sensorsd.c sensorsd.conf.5 etc : sensorsd.conf Log message: Major update to sensorsd. Improves support for both 'smart' (those providing sensor status) and 'old-style' sensors. Due to re-design, the following improvements are now present and many flaws are now gone: == for smart sensors == * automatically monitor all sensors that provide status by themselves, with the possibility to ignore certain individual sensors or sensors of certain type (appropriate template for sensorsd.conf is included) * report actual sensor status as provided by the driver. Previously, WARN, CRITICAL and UNKNOWN statuses were considered the same, but now they are different and will be reported separately. This also improves readability of the log-files and consistency with sysctl output. * ability to ignore status provided by the driver with the 'istatus' keyword ("ignore automatic status" or "I set the status"), with the possibility to set your own settings for acceptable limits. Previously, it was not possible to set any kind of user limits for those sensors that had their own status facilities. == for old-style sensors == * previously, lm(4)-style fans that were flagged SENSOR_FINVALID during sensorsd startup were completely ignored, but now their invalid status is appropriately reported, and they are monitored again when they come out of their invalid mode * previously, a sensor that had an empty entry in the configuration file was reported to be "within limits", but now it will not be monitored at all (unless, of cause, it provides its own status) As a bonus, sensorsd syslog entries should now be shorter, and the majority of them will fit on one line on 80-column terminals. ok beck@, henning@, deraadt@
