Does lm_sensors support HP Proliant DL320 G2 machine? (Examined/Solved - lm_sensors 2.8.7 Linux 2.4.21 enterprise)
|Reported by:||contact||Owned by:||somebody|
I have run the sensors-detect already. When I run it the first time, it tells
to load the i2c-piix4 and eeprom drivers and I did. Then I run sensors, it
only listed the eeprom version and adaptor etc. No measurements such as
voltages and fan speeds being listed.
While checking the supported chips by the lm_sensors, it includes ServerWorks?
OSB4, CSB5, CSB6 but in HP Proliant DL320 motherboard, the main chipset is GC-
SL. Will this i2c-piix4 work fine with this or not? If not supported now, are
you going to update the drivers in the near future or could I have any
alternatives to make it work (we have 24 this type of machines, we are
desperate to get the monitoring work)?
Jim --- If sensors listed the eeproms, it means that the i2c-piix4 driver works properly
bridge to I2C/SMBus devices, not a hardware monitoring chip by itself.
So, since sensors-detect didn't find any hardware monitoring device, either
there aren't any, or they are not known to us yet. You can send the full output
of sensors-detect to the sensors mailing-list for a detailed analysis. However,
know that Compaq has a long history of proprietary hardware monitoring systems
that lm_sensors cannot possibly support. This may be the case for this machine
