NAME
       sensors - print sensors information

SYNOPSIS
       sensors [ options ] [ chips ]
       sensors -s [ chips ]
       sensors --bus-list

DESCRIPTION
       sensors is used to show the current readings of all sensor chips.
       sensors  -s is used to set all limits as specified in the configuration
       file.
       sensors --bus-list is used to generate bus statements suitable for  the
       configuration file.

OPTIONS
       -c, --config-file config-file
              Specify  a configuration file. If no file is specified, the lib-
              sensors default configuration file is used. Use  `-c  /dev/null'
              to temporarily disable this default configuration file.

       -h, --help
              Print a help text and exit.

       -s, --set
              Evaluate  all  `set'  statements  in  the configuration file and
              exit. You must be `root' to do this. If this  parameter  is  not
              specified, no `set' statement is evaluated.

       -A, --no-adapter
              Do not show the adapter for each chip.

       -u     Raw  output.  This  mode is suitable for debugging and for post-
              processing of the output by scripts.  It  is  also  useful  when
              writing  a  configuration  file  because  it shows the raw input
              names which must be referenced in the configuration file.

       -v, --version
              Print the program version and exit.

       -f, --fahrenheit
              Print the temperatures in degrees Fahrenheit instead of Celsius.

       --bus-list
              Generate bus statements suitable for using in sensors.conf. Such
              bus statements are only needed if you have several chips sharing
              the same address on different buses of the  same  type.  As  bus
              numbers  are  usually  not guaranteed to be stable over reboots,
              these statements let you refer to each bus by  its  name  rather
              than numbers.

FILES
       /etc/sensors3.conf
       /etc/sensors.conf
              The system wide configuration file. See sensors.conf(5) for fur-
              ther details.
