guardcat is a Perl script intended to monitor, log, alert, and/or control PC hardware sensors and fans.
guardcat is likely of interest mostly to those running Linux systems. While the script should, in theory, be able to run on any POSIX-compatible system, the input routines assume something like Linux's hwmon API to obtain sensor readings.
- Built-in support for finding and reading "hwmon" sensors
- Read values from arbitrary files
- Read values from external programs
- Raise alerts if the readings go outside of limits you define
- Alerts can be indicated using any of:
- Log sensor readings to a data log file periodically
- Control fan speed in response to temperature inputs
- Write arbitrary values to arbitrary files at startup and/or shutdown
- All these features are optional and configurable
These files are also included in the distribution kit.
