HDDtempNC is a tool to acquire hard disk drive temperature from hddtemp's network interface.

It is Python script and requires a working Python environment. It depends a configured and working hddtemp daemon on the system whose HDD temperatures are required.

Install

Pre-requisites

  • Python 2.x or 3.x
  • Working instance of HDDtemp running in daemon mode and listening on a TCP port (HDDtemp need not be running on the same host as the one running HDDtempNC, however must be reachable via TCP port)

Download

Package

Get the package from the download linked above.

Git clone

Clone repository.

git clone --recurse-submodules \
https://github.com/viharm/phpAria2rpc.git

Remember to clone recursively (--recurse-submodules) to ensure cloning the submodules.

PyPI

From version v1.3.0 onwards, HDDtempNC is available on PyPI and can be installed with pip (or pip3)

Deploy

Save the downloaded directory structure in your choice of path within your application (plugins, includes, etc.)

Usage

HDDtempNC can be used either from the command line or by calling it in another script/program

Command syntax

The command syntax using long semantic arguments is as follows

hddtempnc.py --disk=/dev/<diskpath> [ --target=<hostname> ] [ --port=<HDDtemp port> ] [ --debug ] [ --help ]

The command syntax using short POSIX-style arguments is as follows

hddtempnc.py -d /dev/<diskpath> [ -t <hostname> ] [ -p <HDDtemp port> ] [ -g ] [ -h ]

Following parameters are available:

Argument Alternative argument Description Optional Default
-g --debug Debug to console/stdout Yes None
-t 192.168.0.30 --target=server.local Specify target host (IP address or resolvable host name) Yes localhost
-p 3378 --port=3698 Specify target host's port Yes 7634
-d /dev/sda --disk=/dev/sda Specify disk to interrogate (full device path) No None
-h --help Show help Yes None

Options

The above command options are explained below. The sequence of parameters is not important.

Disk

-d <disk> (--disk=<disk>)

Specify disk to interrogate by providing full path to the block device

Example: /dev/sda

Optional: No

Default value: None

Host

-t <host> (--target=<host>)

Specify target host to interrogate. HDDtemp must be running on this host (in daemon mode) and listening on a TCP port.

Examples: 192.168.0.30, server.local, server.domain.tld

Optional: Yes

Default value: localhost

Port

-p <port> (--port=<port>)

Specify target port to interrogate. HDDtemp must be listening on this port.

Optional: Yes

Optional: Yes

Default value: None

Runtime help

-h (--help)

Show help and exit.

Optional: Yes

Default value: None
