Monitor sensor temperature like CPU
#1
Hello all,

I'm still on 1.1.11 until the auto kernel builder is available. Still loving my setup. Smile

I wanted to monitor the temp on my CPU for example. It's not available in the System page so I ssh'd in and found I had to install lm-sensors.

I installed sudo apt install lm-sensors. I did run sudo sensors-detect after, but I aborted as I didn't want more modules added to boot time.

So I removed everything by running sudo apt-get remove --auto-remove lm-sensors and sudo apt-get --auto-remove purge lm-sensors.

Is there sensor monitoring in newer builds or planned.....maybe in the system page as an option?

There's a design for that. And it's going to be running in it's own separate thread. Sampling the sensors according to a pre-set interval, with graphs and what not. But, as with almost everything here, the plan/design is there, just need the time to execute.  Blush

Thanks heaps @agent_kith , I'm glad it wasnt that I didn't look in the right place.

I love how everything is minimalist and all available power is put into the audio.

Hence why I didn't want more bloat installed .....

Keep up the great work!!!

Sorry, but I do wonder whether monitoring the CPU temperature is required in the first place. By itself, using SnakeOil to play music is a very light load.

Unless you are doing heavy duty DSP and upsampling using Room or HQPlayer, there is no load on the CPU.  I would prefer AK to spend his precious time make the SQ even better with a RT kernel, optimise using CPUSet etc. etc..

It's all trying to objectively quantify the quality of sound. Similar to cyclictest, top. Trying to measure if any of them makes a difference. E.g.
  1. Number of processes running
  2. Number of RT processes running
  3. I/O activity
  4. Nice levels
  5. Temperatures, Fan speed RPMs
Basically trying to do correlations. In fact I am actually going to add more environment sensors (AQI, room temperature, pressure and humidity), and see how that goes. <- That plan is thwarted somewhat because I havn't been able to travel back to HK in the last 2+ years. I want to get those Aqara Xiaomi IoT devices, and using my home automation software (Home Assistant).

These are all micro effects though, as really IMO to me CPUset and RT kernel are the two dominant factors that alters the SQ. Get these two right, and feed your equipment with quality power and really it's all one needs.

But the geek in my always want to try and objective data points to subjective ones. This is always going to be difficult (probably impossible). Hence it's not high in my list of things to do.
