Getting Started

In order to get temperature(s) of your system, you can run the plugin from the command line or through the configuration file:

Command Line

$ bin/fluent-bit -i thermal -t my_thermal -o stdout -m '*'

[0] my_thermal: [1566099584.000085820, {"name"=>"thermal_zone0", "type"=>"x86_pkg_temp", "temp"=>60.000000}]
[1] my_thermal: [1566099585.000136466, {"name"=>"thermal_zone0", "type"=>"x86_pkg_temp", "temp"=>59.000000}]
[2] my_thermal: [1566099586.000083156, {"name"=>"thermal_zone0", "type"=>"x86_pkg_temp", "temp"=>59.000000}]

Some systems provide multiple thermal zones. In this example monitor only thermal_zone0 by name, once per minute.

$ bin/fluent-bit -i thermal -t my_thermal -p "interval_sec=60" -p "name_regex=thermal_zone0" -o stdout -m '*'
