ACPI_AIBOOST(4)        FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual        ACPI_AIBOOST(4)

NAME
     acpi_aiboost - ASUS AI Booster hardware monitor

SYNOPSIS
     To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following line in your
     kernel configuration file:

           device acpi_aiboost

     Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the
     following line in loader.conf(5):

           acpi_aiboost_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION
     The acpi_aiboost driver provides support for monitoring the hardware
     sensors in recent ASUS motherboards.  The driver uses ACPI as the backend
     to fetch sensor values and descriptions and provides its data via the
     sysctl(8) interface, under dev.acpi_aiboost.0 namespace.  Descriptions
     for these values are available with sysctl -d.

     The acpi_aiboost driver typically has 7 sensors, depending on the
     motherboard and chipset:

           Sensor    Units    Typical Use
           CPU       uK       CPU Temperature
           MB        uK       MB Temperature
           VCC       uV DC    Core Voltage
           +3.3V     uV DC    +3.3 Voltage
           +5V       uV DC    +5 Voltage
           +12V      uV DC    +12 Voltage
           CPU       RPM      CPU Fan

SEE ALSO
     acpi(4), sysctl.conf(5) sysctl(8)

HISTORY
     The acpi_aiboost driver first appeared in FreeBSD 7.0.

AUTHORS
     The acpi_aiboost driver was written by Takanori Watanabe.  This manual
     page was written by Juan Romero Pardines, who adapted the code for
     NetBSD, and adopted back to FreeBSD by Takanori Watanabe.

BUGS
     It's possible to modify voltages via the ACPI methods in the DSDT, but
     for now the driver only reports the sensors' values.  CPU Q-Fan is
     another thing that is typically specified in the ACPI namespace, and in
     the future we should handle this feature (to enable or disable
     automatic/manual fan mode).
