LM78 Motherboard Sensor Plugin

BeTaskManager in the latest release includes a plugin (addon) for the LM78 motherboard sensor. If your motherboard is equipped with this sensor chip you can add the current motherboard temperature and fan speeds to the performance view. This plugin is available for the x86 version only.

This plugin depends on the LM78 driver with is part of the Sensor2 distribution. If that driver isn't installed, the options to add the sensor data to the performance view isn't available.

To use the sensor plugin follow the following steps:

  1. Download the Sensor2 application from here.
  2. Install the Sensor2 application.
  3. Restart your system.

If you start BeTaskManager now, you will have the following options in the "Add" dialog of the performance view:

NOTE: The motherboard sensor driver can only be used by one program at a time. If the driver is already in use by another program a warning dialog is displayed. Until the driver is released by the other program the above counters will always be zero.
