16 Description
17 -----------
18 This driver permits reading the DTS (Digital Temperature Sensor) embedded
19 inside Intel CPUs. This driver can read both the per-core and per-package
20 temperature using the appropriate sensors. The per-package sensor is new;
21 as of now, it is present only in the SandyBridge platform. The driver will
22 show the temperature of all cores inside a package under a single device
23 directory inside hwmon.
24
25 Temperature is measured in degrees Celsius and measurement resolution is
26 1 degree C. Valid temperatures are from 0 to TjMax degrees C, because
27 the actual value of temperature register is in fact a delta from TjMax.
28
29 Temperature known as TjMax is the maximum junction temperature of processor,
30 which depends on the CPU model. See table below. At this temperature, protection
31 mechanism will perform actions to forcibly cool down the processor. Alarm
32 may be raised, if the temperature grows enough (more than TjMax) to trigger
33 the Out-Of-Spec bit. Following table summarizes the exported sysfs files:
34
35 All Sysfs entries are named with their core_id (represented here by 'X').
36 tempX_input      - Core temperature (in millidegrees Celsius).
37 tempX_max        - All cooling devices should be turned on (on Core2).
38                    Initialized with IA32_THERM_INTERRUPT. When the CPU
39                    temperature reaches this temperature, an interrupt is
40                    generated and tempX_max_alarm is set.
41 tempX_max_hyst   - If the CPU temperature falls below than temperature,
42                    an interrupt is generated and tempX_max_alarm is reset.
43 tempX_max_alarm  - Set if the temperature reaches or exceeds tempX_max.
44                    Reset if the temperature drops to or below tempX_max_hyst.
45 tempX_crit       - Maximum junction temperature (in millidegrees Celsius).
46 tempX_crit_alarm - Set when Out-of-spec bit is set, never clears.
47                    Correct CPU operation is no longer guaranteed.
48 tempX_label      - Contains string "Core X", where X is processor
49                    number. For Package temp, this will be "Physical id Y",
50                    where Y is the package number.
51
52 The TjMax temperature is set to 85 degrees C if undocumented model specific
53 register (UMSR) 0xee has bit 30 set. If not the TjMax is 100 degrees C as
54 (sometimes) documented in processor datasheet.
