NAME

     k8temp - device driver for AMD K8 on-die digital thermal sensor

SYNOPSIS

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

           device k8temp

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

           k8temp_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION

     The k8temp driver provides support for the on-die digital thermal sensor
     present in AMD K8 processors.

     The k8temp driver reports each cores’ temperature through a sysctl node
     in the corresponding CPU devices’s sysctl tree, named
     dev.k8temp.%d.sensor{0,1}.core{0,1}.  dev.cpu.%d.temperature is also
     created and it displays the maximum temperature of the two sensors
     located in each CPU core.

SEE ALSO

     sysctl(8)

HISTORY

     The k8temp driver first appeared in FreeBSD 7.1.
