Hans,

- Ian Wells, very active contribs member (Thanks Ian!), has done a lot on lm_sensors see here
This will tell you how to find and activate the sensors in your PC as used by collected.
Note: SME7 does include a working version of lm_sensors - a new rpm install should not be needed ...


I have followed this lm_sensors stuff.
In sme7 lm_sensors is installed. But it does not seem to have all kinds of via modules.
Can anynbody else check if their sme7 has lm_sensor modules? I cannot find vt1211 nor vt8235. I have a via -board (via pd) and should copy a sensor module. But I do not know where to copy it from .

This site:
http://seanm.ca/eden/lmsensors.html

says:
Copy the vt8231 file to /lib/modules/uname -r/kernel/drivers/sensors.

But I do not know where to get that module. It should be in lm_sensors already if I understand it right, since it is supported bu lm_sensors.

I got hddtemp to work just fine for asking it stuff via  telnet. But there is no data in the graphic output of collection.cgi. Do you have a line?

The processes graphic is not there. That has to do with that it has no defintion in the cgi script.

Are you seeing hddtemp on your install? I am not - what am I doing wrong?

you need to install it and configure/test it. See the bottom of the howto. You need to use the latest collectd rpm's too I think.

I do have all the latest rpms installed - but collectd does not show hddtemp in the CGI output on the web page.

[root@host ~]# rpm -q collectd-hddtemp

[root@host ~]# rpm -q collectd

There are hddtemp files in the collectd directory but for some reason they aren't turned into a web output

ls /usr/lib/collectd

Does anyone have hddtemp displaying in the collectd web output?

Hans,
Try
Code: [Select]
wget ftp://ftp.nluug.nl/pub/os/Linux/distr/CentOS/4.2/os/i386/CentOS/RPMS/lm_sensors-devel-2.8.7-2.i386.rpm
rpm -Uvh lm_sensors-devel-2.8*

(this should include the via sensors you listed). Then follow "wellsi" ...

morpheux,
Yes I did have hddtemp  rrd output - and it will be displayed with the new (!) collection.cgi.
Reread what I said above ... you do need to copy the new collection.cgi coming with collectd 3.2.x also.
BUT: the data displayed is bad ... some problems with  hddtemp.c (?!)
BTW: The data ready for display is located in /var/lib/collectd/ !

Regards
Reinhold

Got it - thanks!

cp /usr/share/doc/collectd-3.2.0/contrib/museum/collection.cgi /home/e-smith/files/ibays/cpustats/cgi-bin/collection.cgi

and now it works! The drive temps look fine on my system - they are in Celsius but appear to be accurate.

I installed that rpm but tough luck I am afraid:
[root@mail ~]# find / -name vt1211.ko
[root@mail ~]# modprobe vt1211
FATAL: Module vt1211 not found.

On another point:
I did ask collectd developer to adjust the processes graph. The problem is I think that the specs for that graph are not in collection.cgi.

Hans,

Oops ... Seems like a problem of the centos/SME7 kernel ...
(since that lm_sensors version DOES support the chip)

Quote from: "- markus.dolic.com -"
...of course the latest » lm_sensors version didn’t just work out-of-the-box: sensors-detect found a VT1211 Super IO Sensors chip which needs the » vt1211 module (among some i2c things). as vt1211 is not part of the kernel yet, it needs to be built as an external module. There’s a kernel patch file on the aforementioned vt1211 page, but i copied vt1211.c and changed the corresponding files manually because the patch assumed the kernel source to be in some other directory than /usr/src/linux (just 2 files anyway).

After setting CONFIG_SENSORS_VT1211=m in .config and running make -C /usr/src/linux M=pwd modules followed by modules_install in the drivers/i2c/chips directory, loading the module (insmod /path/to/vt1211.ko) surprisingly worked without any problems and the sensors program showed a bunch of values (kernel version 2.6.11.6, by the way).



See:  http://hem.bredband.net/ekmlar/vt1211.html for a detailed fix.

Regards
Reinhold

Hello,

I find your subject intersting, and am curiouis to know the differences between your solution and the one proposed in:
http://http://firewall-services.com/sme6admin-howto-fr.html
It seemed to work well in v6.0 and claims to 7.0 compatible since recent.

Thanks

persisto,

4me two reasons:

i)  Qu'est-ce qu'il ne fait pas ?:  marche  8-)
iow Didn't work for me when I checked in 7beta5...
Code: [Select]
Can't call method "value" on an undefined value at /etc/e-smith/web/panels/manager/cgi-bin/sme6admin line 182.

ii) collectd is a very fast compiled c programm - 10 measurements/second in all the graph's as shown above.
It still needs a bunch of polishing but it does measure more already .-) and it's just a couple of weeks old!

But I do admit that I did not use sme6admin in 6.x (used sysmon) and I might be quite willing to give it another try
... latest when it's called SME7admin :-D

Reinhold

Hi,

I have found howto hack collection.cgi into giving you hour/day/week/month graphs:

Beste copy the script to collectionall.cgi.
Find lines:

            if (length ($inst))
            {
                src="$MySelf$RelDir/$type/$inst/day" /><br />\n);

and add some lines so it becomes:

            if (length ($inst))
            {
                print qq(<img src="$MySelf$RelDir/$type/$inst/3600" /><br />\n);
                print qq(<img src="$MySelf$RelDir/$type/$inst/day" /><br />\n);
                print qq(<img src="$MySelf$RelDir/$type/$inst/week" /><br />\n);
                print qq(<img src="$MySelf$RelDir/$type/$inst/month" /><br />\n);


thats it!

Hi,
hanscees, I was wondering if you find a way regarding the vt1211 modules as I'm also running sme on an epia ITX board ?

Keep on the good job

No. I am afraid not. There are working versions it seems, but I have not been able to track them.

Here is some info I found where the module is named:
http://www.epiawiki.org/wiki/tiki-index.php?page=EpiaInstallingGentoo

I was not able to get the code we need from it though.

Perhaps we should ask redhat bugzilla if they can incorporate it. But we would need a place to point at where working code/patches are.

I have follwed this thread very closely and implemented the howto exactly but Iam unable to get the stats to display.

It appears data is being collected but this is all I can get when I try to display the data.

Internal Server Error
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator, admin@

I am really not sure where to go from here. Any suggestions appreciated

Thanks
Peter
