Cluster Head Node Overnight Temperature
Using the Temperature sensors on the Motherboard
The command sensors-detect was used to setup the sensors, then the command sensors was used in a script the output of which was then piped to the cut command to extract the wanted data board temperature was redirected to a data file temp.txt along with a comma to delimit the data. Data collection was performed every 5 minutes this was run in an infinite loop overnight. The data file temp.txt was imported into a spreadsheet as a csv comma separated variable file.
The Cheap and nasty Script used
while [ 1 ]
temp=`sensors | grep low | grep -v Temp | cut -d\( -f1`
echo $temp >> temp.txt
echo , >> temp.txt
Its not the best script, but it does what I wanted it to do IMHO.
