Re: Easy fix fan/temp OS6 issues on x86 legacy #no support

Finally I tried an OS reinstall and I had same kind of temperature. Then I started a Factory Default, and I will soon see what temperature I will have.
I have look on the temps a third morning (same weather conditions) and they were in-between the first and second reading. the cpu temp is just easy to leave 35°C when complete idle, and with just 5% activity it goes fast to 42°C or more. I guess such a climb is due to the fact that it is nearly passively cooled (the only fan is not exactly on top of it). I'll leave it here as I never had the noise of the fan at full speed.

Re: Easy fix fan/temp OS6 issues on x86 legacy #no support

Hello,

I read here about fan and temperature controls getting it into the frontview page. I have a ReadyNas Pro (Pioneer). The temperature control is working with the pmwconfig tool as described in this thread. I don't get the point if you can get the temperature graphs working without using crontab jobs. Is that possible?

If you look to this reply https://www.readynas.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=51&t=71155&start=75#p411889, then it should work with adding or modifing a file under 'sensors.d' map. Is this true for the ReadyNas Pro and if so how? I updated to 6.1.6 version.

Thanks for the input already done here.

Re: Easy fix fan/temp OS6 issues on x86 legacy #no support

I've just tested 6.1.6 on my Ultra 4.
Overall happy however my fan is running at 800rpm whereas under 4.2.26 it was running at 1800rpm.
My temp are getting quite high, is this still a problem with OS 6 and I need to manually configure the fan control??

Thanks for any advice... Smiley Very Happy

Re: Easy fix fan/temp OS6 issues on x86 legacy #no support

Hi,
first time post here. Great forum Smiley Very Happy
I installed 6.1.6 on my ultra 2 and it Works very good exept for the fan Control. The fan stabilizes at 760 rpm and CPU temp is at 60C without load. I Guess this is a bit high. I tried "echo 50 > /sys/devices/platform/it87.2576/pwm1" as root and the fan went to 1500 rpm for a while, but Returns to 760 rpm within 20 minutes or so. System temp is at about 25C.
any advice?

best,

60C is perfectly fine for Atom -- maximum operating temperature is 100C. In fact, the internal CPU core temp sensor only becomes accurate over 50C.

# pwmconfig revision 6166 (2013-05-01)
This program will search your sensors for pulse width modulation (pwm)
controls, and test each one to see if it controls a fan on
your motherboard. Note that many motherboards do not have pwm
circuitry installed, even if your sensor chip supports pwm.

We will attempt to briefly stop each fan using the pwm controls.
The program will attempt to restore each fan to full speed
after testing. However, it is ** very important ** that you
physically verify that the fans have been to full speed
after the program has completed.

Found the following devices:
hwmon0/device is coretemp
hwmon1/device is it8721

Found the following PWM controls:
hwmon1/device/pwm1 current value: 0
hwmon1/device/pwm2 current value: 0
hwmon1/device/pwm3 current value: 2

Giving the fans some time to reach full speed...
Found the following fan sensors:
hwmon1/device/fan1_input current speed: 0 ... skipping!
hwmon1/device/fan2_input current speed: 0 ... skipping!
hwmon1/device/fan3_input current speed: 2242 RPM

Warning!!! This program will stop your fans, one at a time,
for approximately 5 seconds each!!!
This may cause your processor temperature to rise!!!

Greetings mdgm!
I've got a quick question for you in this regard. Once I'm ready to install OS6 version 6.1.7 (stable) after it is officially released, should one uninstall or undo all the fancontrol related hacks prior to installing 6.1.7 to insure there won't be any conflicts? Or do you think that the OS updater will take care of all that.

As always, thanks a million for your endless contributions to the ReadyNAS community!

Re: Easy fix fan/temp OS6 issues on x86 legacy #no support

I just remembered that I had never undone my fan hacks when updating to 6.1.7 RC5.

If I do
apt-get remove lm-sensors fancontrol
at this point, will this fix the problem or whether a factory default will be required?

Any ideas before I proceed.

Re: Easy fix fan/temp OS6 issues on x86 legacy #no support

lm-sensors package do not have to be installed after the 6.1.7 RC5 update.
My fans are running fine now, only not showing properly in frontview.

I can't really tell if the fan RPM changes if the CPU is under load, but for now... It sounds good.

I did noticed an other failure now that I'm home.
The OLED screen works while booting and showing hostname etc. but after a short time the screen stops working.

Re: Easy fix fan/temp OS6 issues on x86 legacy #no support

I've just done a fresh install of 6.1.7 RC5 on a readynas pro business edition and seems to be working great. Nice to see they have invested some time into getting all the graphs etc working on the legacy devices. :thumbsup:

Only issue is the fans are now too slow, they start at about 2000 then over an hour drop to <800. The temps while copying some data are:

CPU 50c
system 65c
drives 43c

Which isn't too bad although during rebuild the drives hit >50c which isn't good. The main problem is I keep getting an email saying "Fan 'Fan' in enclosure 'Internal' speed is below threshold. (688 rpm)." Is there an option I'm missing to recalibrate the fans like on the old firmware? or a way of speeding them up a bit?

For now I may pop an extra fan on the spare fan header see if that will cool the drives.

Renedis is your OLED screen just turning off? I think it's meant to do that. It pops back up if there is an alert like sync % complete or if you press power button quickly.

So you guys are telling me that the display should be turned of after a while..
Can't really remember if the screen turned of in OS4.


I'm trying to figure out if it is possible to fix the graphs in Frontview.

the trick with the .conf file in Sensors.D does not work Smiley Sad

I'm on OS4 (Ultra 6) now and can confirm the display turns off and a momentary press brings it back up.

So about to make the switch straight to 6.1.7 and from what I've been reading I shouldn't have any fan issues with that version. Are there any other traps, I've been trawling through the forums and nothing is standing out at me except:
