lm_sensors (Linux-monitoring sensors), is a free open source software-tool for Linux that provides tools and drivers for monitoring temperatures, voltage, humidity and fans. It can also detect chassis intrusions.

decode-dimms.pl decodes and prints information on any RAM memory module with SPD information in the computer.

It contains a library called libsensors with an API that applications can use. It contains a daemon called sensord which supports RRD.

Software like GKrellM, KSensors, xsensors and Net-SNMP make or can make use of lm-sensors.

The project formerly hosted at www.lm-sensors.org can now be found on GitHub.[2]
