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
sensors --bus-list is used to generate bus statements suitable for the
-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.
Print a help text and exit.
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.
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.
Print the program version and exit.
Print the temperatures in degrees Fahrenheit instead of Celsius.
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
