Re: [vfio-users] [help] Passing or sharing host temperature and fan speeds to guest?

You're right - I just wanted to try using the proprietary software that comes with my cpu cooler.  I monitor my temps using conky anyway - no need for it, really.  I was just curious.  Thanks!

You'd need to passtrhough the virtual ISA bus your sensor IO chip is connected to, and that's pretty tightly integrated with your southbridge, so I don't see how that could be doable. Why would you want that, though? The host and an hypotheric guest with thermal management access would both use the same methods to control fan speed. Unless you have a specific reason to use, say, speedfan, you'd probably better off just configuring lm_sensors or ACPI thermal control correctly.
