The program provides a presentation of hardware health and performance metrics such as temperatures, fan rpm's, utilization, drive status, ... It can interact with certain BIOS functions such as setting counter thresholds and limits. It can send email alerts when an alarm is triggered. The documentation indicates it needs i2c and gnome.

My needs are for drive status and temperature monitoring. The system uses passive heat sinks on the CPU's and graphics card. There are 3 fans in the Supermicro SC733-645 case - 92mm intake, 120mm exhaust and ??mm power supply.

I can use MRTG to monitor utilization as I do on my Windows workstation that will be retired when my new FBSD system is ready. Link

All suggestions are greatly appreciated.
