K8TEMP(8)		FreeBSD	System Manager's Manual		     K8TEMP(8)

NAME
     k8temp -- display on-die temperature readings from	AMD K8 and K10 proces-
     sors

SYNOPSIS
     k8temp [-nd] [selector ...] | [-v | -h]

DESCRIPTION
     The k8temp	utility	displays temperature readings from AMD K8 and K10 pro-
     cessors using their on-die	thermal	diode(s).

     k8temp requires read-write	access to /dev/pci, and	thus must be run as
     root.

     The following options are available:

     -v	     Display version and copyright information.

     -h	     Display help text.

     -n	     Show only temperature values.

     -d	     Display debug information,	including raw register contents	and
	     interpreted subvalues, and	an Advanced Power Management feature
	     dump.

     Selectors specify which CPU, core and sensor to read, and are of the form
     cpu[:core[:sensor]].  Note, output	order is fixed,	and not	(yet) defined
     by	the order of selectors.

EXAMPLES
     k8temp 1:0:0
	      Display reading for CPU1,	core 0,	sensor 0.

     k8temp 1:0
	      Display reading for CPU1,	core 0,	all available sensors.

     k8temp -d 0 2
	      Display reading for CPU 0	and CPU2, all available	cores and sen-
	      sors.  Display debug output.

BUGS
     k8temp may	cause unsupported systems to reboot, crash or explode.

     Core numbers on single core systems may be	incorrect (e.g.	core 1 but no
     core 0).

     Running multiple copies of	k8temp at once could result in readings	being
     taken from	incorrect cores.

     Readings from K10's are experimental.  Limited testing suggests they're
     10-20 degrees too low.

HISTORY
     0.1.0, 2007-10-21
	     First release.

     0.1.1, 2007-10-22

	     ter.

     0.2.0, 2007-10-25
	     Add support for diode offset correction and debugging options.
	     Add CPUID check.

     0.3.0, 2007-12-04
	     Add tentative support for OpenBSD and NetBSD.  Remove (meaning-
	     less) diode offset	correction.  Introduce value-only output mode
	     and sensor	selector arguments.

     0.4.0, 2008-06-22
	     Add preliminary K10 (Barcelona/Phenom) support.
