Hello there,

Thank you for your post.

Unfortunately, we do not have a guide for how to monitor temperatures on Linux. You may want to check if there are any OIDs with which you can retrieve the temperature, for more information about how to set up SNMP on Linux please see this article.
Alternatively, you could try to retrieve the temperature with a custom SSH script, which you could then use in a SSH Script Sensor.

Kind regards,
