2.4 Beta dashboard temperature



  • Can somebody pse confirm if it's still there on the beta? I have 2.3.4 stable and 2.4 beta running on 2 similar mini pcs and don't see the temp bar on 2.4 beta. It could be a bios setup issue but it's so useful I wouldn't want to lose it. Thanks



  • The code is certainly there and trying:
    https://github.com/pfsense/pfsense/blob/master/src/usr/local/www/widgets/widgets/system_information.widget.php#L340
    I don't have temperature-capable hardware running 2.4 right now. Someone else could confirm that temperature really does display.



  • Since the beginning of 2017 and 2.4B…




  • Thanks I think here's a BIG clue in the bios photo. I think some of the cheaper Chinese Celeron 4 port mini pcs have had their BIOSs hacked to disable temperature, because they don't want you to know how hot they can get! I have 2 virtually identical boxes with the same BIOS ID string but totally different bios setups(??).  One is in a plain steel box and gets hot but runs v cool with a small 50mm fan. The second a little more expensive is in an ali case with nice external fins and has the bios temperature readout in the hardware section. I suspect that pfsense.freeBSD is reading the Intel hardware temperature string.
