|Component overview||Access hardware sensors through the coretemp sysf interface|
The CoreTemp component is one of several components bundled with PAPI. It accesses hardware monitoring sensors through the coretemp sysfs interface. This component will dynamically create a native events table for all the sensors that can be found under /sys/class/hwmon/hwmon[0-9]+. It is distributed with the PAPI tarball, or can be downloaded independently using the provided link.
Use the "Download tarball" link on the provided page to download a tarball of the source code folder to your computer. Untar the folder and place it in the components directory of your PAPI source tree. Configure using "--with-component=coretemp". Rebuild PAPI.
