What is the threshold set to?

I do not know, and do not know how to find out.

What is the command, if you know?


$ apropos sensors
libsensors (3) - publically accessible functions provided by the sensors library
sensors              (1)  - printing sensors information
sensors-detect       (8)  - detect hardware monitoring chips
sensors.conf [sensors] (5)  - libsensors configuration file

$ locate sensors.conf
/etc/sensors.conf
/usr/share/man/man5/sensors.conf.5.gz

$ ls -l /etc/sensors.conf
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 57594 Apr 13  2004 /etc/sensors.conf

$ vi /etc/sensors.conf

I can explain it for you, but I can't understand it for you.
I speak only for myself, and I am unanimous in that!
