List of Plugins

The Sensors plugin uses lm-sensors to read hardware sensors. You will need to configure lm-sensors (run sensors-detect as root) before this plugin will collect any useful and correct data. Try the sensors(1) application: If it works, so should this plugin.

Since often not all sensors that can be collected are actually useful (I never need the voltage sensors, for example), you can chose to only select some of the sensors.
