As we might know, the CPU is the brain of a system and is responsible for executing required operations. The performance of any device depends on its CPU health. Since the CPU plays a vital role in a network, monitoring it from time to time is essential. Proactive monitoring enables efficient rationing of resources they helping the CPU operate seamlessly. Not just that, proactive CPU monitoring also helps detect performance bottlenecks, enabling quick troubleshooting. One important factor that contributes to CPU health is the CPU temperature.

Why is CPU temperature monitoring important?

CPU temperature monitoring is a measure you take for your organization to ensure smooth operation and durability of network devices. Improper tracking of the CPU temperature might impact CPU health, leading to temperature fluctuations. Excessive heating might not just affect the system performance but also causes permanent hardware damage. Hence, monitoring the CPU frequently is essential.

How to check CPU temperature?

Checking the CPU temperature doesn't require you to keep your hands on it or search for a thermometer. All you need to do is to choose the right network monitoring system that has an inbuilt CPU temperature monitor in it. Monitoring CPU temperatures of workstations, servers, and other devices with the ideal hardware monitor helps in early identification of potential issues.

Download the software and configure it to monitor the CPU depending on your organization's requirement. The frequency of monitoring the CPU depends on the usage patterns. Then, the network monitoring system generates the data wherein you can check for the CPU's temperature.

Maintain optimal CPU temperature with OpManager

Higher CPU temperatures negatively impact your computing devices. Increased CPU temperature can:

  1. Reduce the CPU clock rate which affects the computational ability of your computer.
  2. Forcibly kill the devices and make them unavailable.
  3. Shorten the life span of your computer.
  4. Damage the motherboard and the transistors in the chip.

To keep your device performance at an optimum level, increase the availability of the devices, and protect your CPU from damage, you need to monitor the CPU temperature continuously. So, what you actually need is a CPU temperature monitor coupled with some hardware monitoring features like fan monitoring, power supply monitoring, and more.

OpManager - Powerful CPU Temperature Monitor

ManageEngine OpManager is a powerful CPU temperature monitor that continuously monitors the CPU temperature of all network devices.

Using OpManager, you can monitor:

OpManager also provides support for CPU temperature monitor, displaying all available temperature data from your network devices.

1. Temperature:

Tracking temperature data is vital when it comes to server hardware monitoring, as any minor fluctuations in your server's temperature can affect its availability and in turn can make or break your network. Perform temperature monitoring of critical components including CPU temperature monitoring to ensure optimum performance and long life from your network hardware.

2. Fan Speed:

A sudden drop in fan speed can result in quick overheating of the CPU. Proper fan speed also promises the longevity of the components. With OpManager, ensure your racks, chassis, routers, and other critical components are well-ventilated with proper air-flow distribution.

3. Power Supply:

It should be understood that the power supplies have the maximum load capacities. Hence, monitoring the power supply helps prevent overloading, thereby reducing the hardware damage that can happen when left unattended. Monitor the voltage and current supplied to various hardware components and PSU redundancies to prevent device failure or short circuits.

4. Processor Clock Speed:

Processor clock speed directly impacts the performance of the CPU. Overclocking beyond the manufacturer's specifications might result in overheating of the CPU. With OpManager, monitor the rate at which your processor completes its processing cycle to ensure maximum utilization of the available resources.

5. Battery:

Battery degrades over time and hence monitoring the batter health from time to time is essential. Monitoring battery while maintaining an optimal CPU temperature helps strike a balance between performance and continuous availability of device. Monitor the batteries in your Dell servers to prevent cache data loss, BSODs and prevent abnormal shutdowns.

hardware health report - ManageEngine OpManager

OpManager's CPU temperature monitoring module will alert you about any threshold violations through the medium of your choice (email, SMS, or web alarms), so that you're informed about a potential issue as soon as the situation arises. You can also use the hardware health report to get a quick view of the overall status of your devices' metrics, and you can even export them in PDF/Excel format and send them to your email address. From a single pane, you can see all the critical hardware data, monitor CPU temperature and easily monitor the overall health of your devices. What's more? You can also monitor CPU temp and other crucial metrics on the go with OpManager's advanced network monitoring application available on both Android and iOS devices.
