I've created and attached a script for monitoring GPU temperature in xymon. This only works for an NVidia based card with the nvidia drivers installed and the nvidia-smi utility. The script will exit silently if these conditions are not met.

The script attempts to identify the model of the video card and then determine the maximum temperature NVidia recommends.

This version will not work with LinHES 8.2 because of a change in location for proc nvidia.
Any reason that nvidia-smi wasn't used to determine the model?

Good feedback, I've attached a newer version that does not rely on /proc anymore and uses just nvidia-smi. I let it run overnight and it appears to be working well.

I just installed a GeForce GT 630, which is not recognized by the NVidia driver in LinHes 8.1. This case causing no temperature to be logged even though the card would report a temperature. This has been fixed.
