While doing some stress tests i monitored the temperature of my HP N40L. The N40L mainboard has 3 sensors: CPU, Nothbridge and Ambient. The room where the servers are located has a temperature of 20°C. Surprisingly the fan speed did not change, even at full load.
Here are my results:
North Bridge: 37°C
Moderate Load (Both CPUs at 50% and some harddrive activity):
North Bridge: 38°C
North Bridge: 39°C
how did you get three temperatures?
Using sensors, I get only one.
Thanks and regards, Dieter
I don't know why you can't get more temperatures with sensors. I can see three values using both, the Remote Access Card and the vSphere Client (Health Status).
Do you have a RAC to check if you can get three sensors there?
