Automatic Temperature regulation
Posted 5 Jul 2017 by Stevef9432203
Here is a link https://sourceforge.net/projects/boinc-gpucontrol/ tp a Source Forge Program which controls the GPU temperature in Linux for NVIDIA GPUs. We set a temperature target of 81C, and automatically suspend the GPU's work when this temperature is reached. The thresholds are easily changed in the code. I put enough comments so the code should easily be readable by anyone with at least some knowledge of shell scripting.
This is a first-pass at it, I tried it with both of my GPUs, and it works.
I set the cool-down threshold to be as short as possible to maintain the temperature, and at the same time, allow as much computing time as possible.
