Temperature Monitoring

ProxMobo provides an essential feature to ensure your Proxmox VE environment is running at optimal performance — Temperature Monitoring. This allows you to keep a close eye on the thermal status of critical hardware components such as CPUs, GPUs, and storage devices, helping you to prevent overheating issues that can lead to hardware failure and system instability.


How It Works

Temperature Monitoring in ProxMobo works by accessing the Proxmox VE node's thermal sensor data: it retrieves temperature data from the /sys/class/hwmon/ directory on the Proxmox VE node.


  • Shell Access: This feature requires shell access to the Proxmox VE node to execute the commands that acquire the temperature readings. Ensure that the user account used in ProxMobo has the necessary permissions.

Setting Up Temperature Monitoring

To set up temperature monitoring in ProxMobo:

  • Enable Temperature Monitoring: Go to Settings -> Temperature -> Toggle the Temperature option.
  • Choose the Unit you prefer: Celsius or Fahrenheit
  • View Temperature Data: Once the setup is complete, navigate to the Temperature Monitoring section within Proxmox VE Node to view the thermal status of your hardware components.
