Try man sensord is you have the package installed. The defaults are to check for alarms on 1 minute intervals and log the reading every 1/2 hour. But the defaults are changeable - you could log every x seconds if you wanted to. -l option for alarm checks and -L for logging. You can use seconds (s), minutes (m), or hours (h). The Fedora RPM installs a sensord daemon, and /etc/sysconfig/sensord is the config file for it. Mikkel -- Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for thou art crunchy and taste good with Ketchup!
