NAME

xmbmon - X MotherBoard Monitor  

SYNOPSIS

xmbmon [options]

This manual page documents briefly the xmbmon command. This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

Recent motherboards have functionalities to monitor the CPU temperatures and the frequency of CPU cooling fans etc. Although some programs utilizing these hardware monitoring facilities have been developed for the Microsoft Windows platforms, no programs seem to exist for PC-UNIX and the X Windows System platforms.

xmbmon displays the three temperatures and a core voltage as simple curves.
