       mbmon - MotherBoard Monitor


       mbmon [options] <seconds for sleep> (default 5 sec)

       This  manual  page  documents briefly the mbmon 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.

       mbmon  used  at  the  command  line reports the temperatures, voltages and rpm (rounds per
       minute) of cooling fans. It can also be used remotely  via  telnet,  thanks  to  the  "-P"
