Less noice thanks to lm_sensors
#1
Hi,

I have a Thecus N4510UPRO-S and the biggest (if not only actually) problem I face is that it is much too noisy in my office without a dedicated server room.

This problem could easily be addressed with either an automatic setting (possibly a single checkbox "enable"/"disable" in UI) or maybe some more advanced UI if really wanted to use <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.lm-sensors.org/">http://www.lm-sensors.org/</a><!-- m --> and fancontrol to reduce noise to a minimum.

This noise is the single problem that makes me unhappy with this NAS.

I tried to self-compile the lm_sensors module, finally got something "running" (sidenote: I could not figure out a step-by-step tutorial on how to set up a working dev environment for the GPL version of the kernel) and could run "sensors" but although the 3 temperature reports are same as in UI, I only see 2 fans (instead of 4 in UI) and both of them are reported running at 0 rpm. Pretty sure having a tutorial for GPL version of kernel would let me solve this problem alone (see <!-- l --><a class="postlink-local" href="http://forum.thecus.com/viewtopic.php?f=72&t=9210">viewtopic.php?f=72&t=9210</a><!-- l -->).

So please add lm_sensors or any similar tool as an option to upcoming firmware 2.x and you'll make an additional happy man Smile

Just upgraded to latest 2 (now stable firmware). Just to show what I consider noisy:

Code:
CPU Activity:         0.25 %
Memory Activity:      26.7 %
System Fan Speed1:    6382 RPM
System Fan Speed2:    6382 RPM
System Fan Speed3:    6493 RPM
System Fan Speed4:    6172 RPM
CPU Temperature:      33 °C/91.4 °F
System Temperature1:  43 °C/109.4 °F
System Temperature2:  37 °C/98.6 °F

That is, >6000 rpm for no activity and no critical temperature.
