No fan control?


Recommended Posts

Hi all, I have a Terramaster F5-221 server running unraid, and I can't get fan control to work.  Basically my fans have to be on all the time ("Full on" in bios" otherwise they are completely off regardless of temperatures.  (other options in BIOS are "automatic" and "PWM manually").

 

I've installed PERL, dynamix fan control and dynamic system temp.  In fan control is disabled and there is no fan controller detected.

 

I've run sensors-detect from the console and this is what I get:

 

root@Tower:~# sensors_detect
-bash: sensors_detect: command not found
root@Tower:~# sensors-detect
# sensors-detect version 3.6.0
# System: retsamarret 000-F5221-FBA002-0001 [Default string]
# Board: retsamarret Default string
# Kernel: 4.19.107-Unraid x86_64
# Processor: Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU J3355 @ 2.00GHz (6/92/9)

This program will help you determine which kernel modules you need
to load to use lm_sensors most effectively. It is generally safe
and recommended to accept the default answers to all questions,
unless you know what you're doing.

Some south bridges, CPUs or memory controllers contain embedded sensors.
Do you want to scan for them? This is totally safe. (YES/no): YES

Some Super I/O chips contain embedded sensors. We have to write to
standard I/O ports to probe them. This is usually safe.
Do you want to scan for Super I/O sensors? (YES/no): YES

Some systems (mainly servers) implement IPMI, a set of common interfaces
through which system health data may be retrieved, amongst other things.
We first try to get the information from SMBIOS. If we don't find it
there, we have to read from arbitrary I/O ports to probe for such
interfaces. This is normally safe. Do you want to scan for IPMI
interfaces? (YES/no): YES
Probing for `IPMI BMC KCS' at 0xca0...                      No
Probing for `IPMI BMC SMIC' at 0xca8...                     No

Some hardware monitoring chips are accessible through the ISA I/O ports.
We have to write to arbitrary I/O ports to probe them. This is usually
safe though. Yes, you do have ISA I/O ports even if you do not have any
ISA slots! Do you want to scan the ISA I/O ports? (yes/NO): NO

Lastly, we can probe the I2C/SMBus adapters for connected hardware
monitoring devices. This is the most risky part, and while it works
reasonably well on most systems, it has been reported to cause trouble
on some systems.
Do you want to probe the I2C/SMBus adapters now? (YES/no): YES
Using driver `i2c-i801' for device 0000:00:1f.1: Broxton (SOC)
Module i2c-dev loaded successfully.

Next adapter: SMBus I801 adapter at f040 (i2c-0)
Do you want to scan it? (yes/NO/selectively): NO


Now follows a summary of the probes I have just done.
Just press ENTER to continue: 

Driver `coretemp':
  * Chip `Intel digital thermal sensor' (confidence: 9)

Driver `to-be-written':
  * ISA bus, address 0xa20
    Chip `ITE IT8613E Super IO Sensors' (confidence: 9)

Note: there is no driver for ITE IT8613E Super IO Sensors yet.
Check https://hwmon.wiki.kernel.org/device_support_status for updates.

Do you want to generate /etc/sysconfig/lm_sensors? (yes/NO): YES
Copy prog/init/lm_sensors.init to /etc/init.d/lm_sensors
for initialization at boot time.
You should now start the lm_sensors service to load the required
kernel modules.

Unloading i2c-dev... OK

Help!  The fan noise is driving me up the wall now as the server is in my home office.

The ITE chip that controls your fans does NOT have a driver (not yet written) so you can not use unraid to control your fans
