coretempdriver provides the system with a means of reading the per-core and, when available, per-package digital temperature sensors on Intel CPUs. Currently, the
coretempdriver supports Intel Core family processors after Penryn microarchitecture and Intel Atom processors starting with the Silvermont microarchitecture.
Temperature information is available to the system via the fault
management architecture (FMA). The file system location and programming
interface to the
coretemp driver are considered
Volatile, subject to change without notice, and should not
be used directly. Raw temperature information can be dumped through the FMA
developer utility fmtopo.
