Monitoring GPU temps has never been of paramount importance in Linux since the primary reason for doing so was for gamers and as we all know, most games suck on linux, so the GPU temp applications are primarily windows based.
Since we have 4 295 GTX cards in a 4U rack case I am guessing they are pretty hot.
To monitor continuously use the watch command watch -n 1 nvidia-settings -q gpuutilization nvidia-smi, the nvidia-smi command shows the temperature of the gpu.I run the command nvidia-smi -lso: [email protected] # nvidia-smi -lso, gPU 0: Product Name : vbscript editor for windows 8 GeForce GTX 295.Serial : PCI ID : 5e010de Temperature : 99 C GPU 4: Product Name : GeForce GTX 295 Serial : PCI ID : 5e010de Temperature : 100 C GPU 5: Product Name : GeForce GTX 295 Serial : PCI ID : 5e010de Temperature :.The help section shows all the available options but for now all I am concerned with is getting the temps on our cards.A fan blowing air on the gpu can cool it over 15 C).First you need to install lm-sensors package sudo apt-get install lm-sensors, then install the KDE plasmoid from Get New Widgets dialog.Most low price gpus do not have a cooling fan and rely only on the heat sink.However, they do get very hot depending on what applications are using.0 GeForce 2:01:00.0 N/A N/A.A fan blowing air on the gpu can cool it over.Now that the world of GPU based tools on Linux is becoming more popular it has become increasingly important to monitor our GPU temps.The nvidia-settings command can also be used to monitor the gpu usage.Nvidia-settings, the Nvidia X Server Settings is a gui program that reports details about the gpu.Nvidia-settings -q gpuutilization Attribute 'gpuutilization' (desktop:0gpu:0 graphics27, memory20, video0, PCIe0.The middle box shows the memory usage.So as every one knows we just rebuilt our massive cracking server. .The following command can be used to check, what processes are accessing the gpu - ps f -o -p lsof -n -w -t /dev/nvidia.Place the widget on the desktop and configure the sensors to display.
