psensor-server is an HTTP server for monitoring hardware sensors remotely.
It provides a JSON Web service which can be used by psensor(1) to monitor remotely the hardware sensors of a computer.
It can provide information about:
* the temperature of the motherboard and CPU sensors (using lm-sensors).
* the temperature of the Hard Disk Drives (using hddtemp).
* the rotation speed of the fans (using lm-sensors).
The entry point of the JSON Web service is: http://hostname:3131/api/1.0/sensors.
It is also possible to connect to the psensor-server with a browser, a simple Web page is displaying the sensors information and the CPU usage.
psensor-server does not provide any way to restrict the connection to the HTTP server, worst, no effort has been made against malicious HTTP attacks. You should make the psensor-server port available only to a network or computer you trust by using the usual network security tools of the system (for example, iptables(8) ).
