Re: Server Fan Control

I think that's a windows utility.  Is there a linux port that would work?

Fixed Lease Hostnames?

Besides manually editing the dhcpd.conf file (which I will do as a last-result, because that means I would have to avoid the GUI forever), is there a way to assign the "hostname" to a fixed dhcp lease/host?
 
Seems pretty obvious and I'm surprised I don't see instructions in the documentation about how to do that.
 
Thanks in advance,
AJ

Re: Server Fan Control

  I think what you need is lm_sensors - however you may also need some 
kernel modules to make it work with your MB.

Re: Server Fan Control

Yeah, I did find that.  I think it's already installed.

Unfortunately, I think my fans are only 3pin connections, which apparently 
can give feedback to the MB about how fast they're rotating, but without the 
4th pin, they can't be "throttled" via software.

Thanks for the feedback.

Re: Server Fan Control

  Hi,

lm_sensors by itself does't change fan speed.
Check in BIOS if you can activate smart control for fans or else you 
need to use fancontrol/pwmconfig

Re: Server Fan Control

Right.  That will only work for fans connected with a 4pin connector (which has the pwm control).  If you have a 3pin power connector from your fan to your MB, it looks like there is nothing you can do with software.

Re: Server Fan Control

I believe you should check this post:
http://lime-technology.com/forum/index.php?PHPSESSID=2313166f5c255ac981c83f060ace0cc6&topic=5548.msg55834#msg55834

Long time ago, in more than one occasion I was playing with
lm_sensors/pwmconfig/fancontrol and I'm sure it was on 3 pin fan.I dont
recall ever seeing 4 pin fan on computers/servers.
Don't let the 3 wire/pwm confuse you.Just try it ;-)
