It is a project to provide the  complete hardware health monitoring support for Linux, in the form of kernel drivers and a user-space library. The project attempts to support as many related devices as possible  especially those which are commonly included on PC mainboards. It can also detect chassis intrusions. decodes and prints information on any RAM memory module with SPD information in the computer.

These drivers provide the base software layer for utilities to acquire data on the environmental conditions of the hardware. It also provide a user-space access library and a sample text-oriented utility built on top of said library to display sensor data.

Typical Uses

Example of scenarios in which this tool cab be used:

-PC users curious of knowing the hardware health status of their machine.
-PC users interested in making their computer quieter by controlling the speed of the fans.
-PC users overclocking their machine. 
-Unattended high-end server, router or other mission-critical machine automated monitoring, you can also alerted within seconds of a failing critical component such as a power supply, fan, other cooling mechanism, or even detect if the case has been opened.
-Embedded systems running Linux. These can use this package to monitor voltages, temperatures, fan speeds, etc. using off-the-shelf components and utilizing a range of bus interfaces (e.g. ISA, SMBus, I2C or SPI).
-Easily measure various types of data (rotational speeds, voltages, temperatures, etc.) using cheap off-the-shelf parts.
