smartctl Vs lm-sensors
I want to monitor the harddisk temperature since I/O task in my system
is very high and usually heatsup the harddisk.
I get two different values viz. one from lm-sensors and other from
smartctl gives me very large values like the one below showing 148
whereas hddtemp or the lm-sensors gives me value
194 Temperature_Celsius 0x0002 148 148 000 Old_age Always
- 37 (Lifetime Min/Max 21/45)
/dev/hda: HTS541010G9AT00: 38 C
Now, which one am i supposed to believe ?
PS: The output above is indicative that the information is definetly
centigrage and not the 194,10xCelsius value. Even if it had been 10x
value, then, the values of 148/10 and 38 do not match.
Am i missing something ?
