AMDTEMP(4)		 BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual		    AMDTEMP(4)

NAME
     amdtemp — device driver for AMD K8, K10 and K11 on-die digital thermal
     sensor

SYNOPSIS
     To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following line in your
     kernel configuration file:

	   device amdtemp

     Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the
     following line in loader.conf(5):

	   amdtemp_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION
     The amdtemp driver provides support for the on-die digital thermal sensor
     present in AMD K8, K10 and K11 processors.

     For the K8 family, the amdtemp driver reports each cores' temperature
     through a sysctl node in the corresponding CPU devices's sysctl tree,
     named dev.amdtemp.%d.sensor{0,1}.core{0,1}.  The driver also creates
     dev.cpu.%d.temperature displaying the maximum temperature of the two sen‐
     sors located in each CPU core.

     For the K10 and K11 families, the driver creates dev.cpu.%d.temperature
     with the temperature of each core.

BUGS
     AMD K9 is not supported because temperature reporting has been replaced
     by Maltese.

SEE ALSO
     sysctl(8)

HISTORY
     The amdtemp driver first appeared in FreeBSD 7.1.
