How can I monitor CPU temp?



I can monitor HD health, RAM and swap usage, CPU user time, queue, load, etc. But can't find CPU temperature. Is it possible?

Hi Hikari,

Thank you very much for asking.

Our "System Health" sensors for servers from major vendors can read temperature(s):
SNMP DELL PowerEdge System Health
SNMP HP ProLiant System Health
SNMP IBM SystemX System Health

If your device is not one which works with PRTG's standard sensors, consider importing the vendor's MIB file. Please see this knowledge base article for further information.

For any further questions or issues, we're glad to help.
