Monitoring Temperature of Workstation

Hi,

a customer "monitors" the tempearture of workstations (CPUs & RAMs) with the free tool SpeedFan. (The tool has to run on every workstation and the monitoring cannot be centralized.)

How can I query the temperature-value (e.g. hourly) with prtg in a similar way?

I have found a way to graph values from hardware sensors, but it doesn't use SpeedFan, though. Instead it uses Open Hardware Monitor and WMI.

I have written a small guide on how you can write custom sensors for Open Hardware Monitor, with some examples on how to implement them in PRTG.

Some example scripts showing how to create channels with data values coming from OHM:

And finally an example sensor script to show a practical implementation of the scripts linked above:

Hello,

I'm afraid this might not easily be possible with PRTG. Speedfan directly looks at the hardware parameters, something PRTG can't remotely do. If there are HP / Dell Servers you could try using the according health-Sensors. But otherwise, this might not be possible with PRTG. Sorry.

best regards.
