lm_sensors provides essential drivers for monitoring the temperatures, voltages, and fans of Linux systems containing devices such as the LM78 and LM75. It contains drivers for sensor chips and I2C and SMBus masters. It also contains text-based tools for sensor reporting, and a library for sensors access called 'libsensors'. It also contains tools for sensor hardware identification and I2C bus probing. There is a list of supported drivers on the Web site.
