In this paper, the authors present a method of collecting temperature information timely and accurately from the thermal sensors in a quad core processor by patching the Linux Kernel with the CoreTemp module. Modern multi core processors are prone to overheating, which can be reduced and prevented by appropriate temperature monitoring. They also present the technique used to read the temperature into a file by using file operation commands for purposes such as temperature aware scheduling.
