Bit of a Curve Ball but thought I would ask anyways.
I run Allstarlink on a Virtual Machine in an Out Building.
On the Supermon a Raspberry PI reports the CPU Temperature.
Has anyone Re-Jigged this to allow a USB Temperature Probe to be used so non PI based off-site locations can report the temperature ?.
We added a USB temperature dongle to our Raspberry Pi and added a shell script that captures the current readings every few minutes. I also tweaked the Supermon page to display the most recent temperature. I’m not sure how this will help you with your VM but I’m happy to share more details.
The question was about NON PI.
Most modern x86 platforms already have the hardware to monitor temps. Look for a linux program lm-sensors. You can create a script to call sensors and have links.php in supermon run the script and parse the output for display on the webpage. That’s how I do it
That was understood. I was just sharing our solution to monitor a temperature pulled from a USB dongle and displaying it on the Supermon page. The idea should work on any platform.
