Anticipez la canicule !

mardi 20 juillet 2004 par Jade

TemperatureMonitor-2.0 vous permet de suivre avec précision la température de vos processeurs et de vos disques durs (les miens sont des IBM/Hitachi).

Le 3ème disque que j’ai mis sous le graveur est le plus chaud 43°, les autres sont à 42° et la CPU à 32°
D’ailleurs c’est le premier thermomètre qui daigne me donner la température de mon vieux G4 450 AGP :-)

Les nouveautés apportées par cette version sont :

The program now supports an unlimited number of sensors per computer. It tries to support all Macintosh systems equipped with sensors that are accessible by Mac OS X without needing third-party device drivers.

Support for on-die temperature measurement of G5 processors has been added. This the first Mac OS X application with this capability that is distributed publicly.

Support for temperature measurement of hard disks has been added. With this feature the application will now also support older Macintosh models that neither have temperature sensors on their mainboards, nor are capable of processor-based temperature estimates. (This feature is only supported with Mac OS X 10.3 or later. For technical reasons it cannot be offered for Jaguar.)

The temperature sensors of a variety of iBook and PowerBook computers as well as sensors in some graphics cards are additionally supported.

The program is no longer terminated when no sensor has been found. In this case it is still possible to read the documentation or use the system information feature.

Rendering issues in connection with shadows not updated correctly for the floating window have been resolved.

The application now makes sure speech output uses exactly the same update interval as graphical output, so there are no longer discrepancies between spoken and displayed values.

By user request, a feature was added to optionally display temperature values in degrees Celsius and degrees Fahrenheit simultaneously.

By user request, a feature was added to optionally zoom the visualization of history data into the current value range, so the curves are presented without losing details.

By user request, the display size of readings in the Dock has been enlarged.

By user request, readings in the Dock can optionally by displayed as plain text lines, enlarging the display even more.

By user request, the application can be launched in a "Lite" version which only displays readings in the menu bar but doesn’t use any space in the Dock.

By user request, the number of digits after the decimal point is held constant when displaying readings. The format can now be specified for each sensor.

By user request, a feature was added to monitor if values exceed or fall below definable limits and announce this by alarm messages. Optical, acoustical and spoken alerts are possible.

The history graphs now contain an additional feature to display rulers that allow to exactly determine history values and their time.

Long-term history data is now saved persistently when the application is quit. One week of readings per sensor, per computer is stored.

The application supports "roaming" users in networks who use different computers with central private folders on a file server. In this case, the application stores individual sensor preferences per computer, allowing the user to take over configurations of similar machines. History data is stored per sensor, per computer, per user.

The history graphs no longer show unavailable readings by horizontal lines. Time intervals that have not been recorded will appear as interruptions in the curve.
The user can define an unlimited number of history windows and map sensors to them. An unlimited number of curves for the same type of physical quantity can be super-imposed in one graph.

A feature to display processor type, frequencies, production date and production place, memory and cache sizes, as well as operating system version has been added.

A feature to display the MPU product data of G5 processor cards has been added.

A new window to display an overview of all sensors has been added. The window allows that technical detail information about each sensor hardware can be queried.
Sensors can be identified by customized colors and names. For each of the different output channels, a different sensor list can be configured. Windows can display sensor readings in vertical or horizontal layout. A color legend can be displayed in a drawer of each history window.
Windows can now be printed.

Current readings or history data can be exported to text files.

A feature was added allowing the software to check for newly available updates on the Internet.

The BSD command line version of the program was revised and now supports an unlimited number of sensors as well.
The menu was restructured.

The documentation was rewritten completely.

The program is now also distributed in a "pro" version under the name Hardware Monitor. The pro-version additionally displays battery data of portable computers, as well as fan, voltage, current, capacity and power sensors on supported computers. The pro-version is distributed as shareware. Temperature Monitor remains available for free.
