thermald


SYNOPSIS
       thermald  [ OPTIONS ]


DESCRIPTION
       thermald  is  a  Linux  daemon used to prevent the overheating of plat-
       forms. This daemon monitors temperature and applies compensation  using
       available cooling methods.

       By  default,  it  monitors  CPU temperature using available CPU digital
       temperature sensors and maintains CPU temperature under control, before
       HW  takes  aggressive correction action. If there is a skin temperature
       sensor in thermal sysfs, then it tries to keep skin  temperature  under
       45C.

       Optionally  thermal  daemon  can act as a primary thermal controller by
       using thermal sysfs or an comprehensive configuration using an XML con-
       figuration file (thermal-conf.xml).


OPTIONS
       -h, --help
              Show help options.

       --version
              Print thermald version and exit.

       --no-daemon
              Don't become a daemon: Default is daemon mode.

       --loglevel=info
              log severity: info level and up.

       --loglevel=debug
              log severity: debug level and up: Max logging.

       --poll-interval
              Poll interval in seconds: Poll for zone temperature changes.  To
              disable polling, set to zero. Polling can only be  disabled,  if
              available  temperature  sensors  can  notify  temperature change
              asynchronously.

       --dbus-enable
              Enable Dbus.

       --exclusive-control
              Act as exclusive thermal controller. This  will  use  user-space
              governor for thermal sysfs and take over control.
