HDD & CPU Temperature


There is a very small but useful tool to monitor your CPU and HDD temperature. (not covered in official RHCE Training or RHCSS Training)

Can be very useful before you think of putting additional cooling devices.

You can use acpi -V for monitoring CPU temperature.

You can use hddtemp /dev/sda for monitoring HDD temperature.

Below is a small illustration from my machine.
