CoreTemp plugin

Plugin=CoreTemp retrieves infromation from the CoreTemp application. The latest CoreTemp application must be running in the background.

Note: If the value of the measure is to be used in a meter which requires a percentage, then appropriate MinValue and/or MaxValue options must be added to the measure.

Options

General measure options

All general measure options are valid.

CoreTempType Default: MaxTemperature

Defines the information to measure. Valid values are:

CPU

  • CpuName: CPU model name.
  • CpuSpeed: CPU frequency.
  • MaxTemperature: Current temperature of the hottest of all cores.
  • BusSpeed: FSB bus frequency.
  • BusMultiplier: Current FSB bus multiplier.
  • Vid: Voltage Identifier value.
  • Tdp: Thermal Design Power temperature.
  • Power: Current power consumption of the CPU.
    Not all CPU models support this value.

Core

These option values use CoreTempIndex to define a specific CPU core.

  • Temperature: Current indexed core temperature.
  • TjMax: Maximum allowed indexed core temperature.
  • CoreBusMultiplier: Current FSB multiplier for the indexed core.
  • CoreSpeed: Current indexed core frequency.
    This is a calculation based on the BusSpeed for the CPU times the CoreBusMultiplier.
  • Load: Current indexed core usage as a percentage.
CoreTempIndex Default: 0
Zero-based index of the core to measure. The first core is 0, the second core is 1, etc.
