I have been running my CT for a while now as a home server. It runs in console mode mainly with screen and: IRC, Profanity (xmpp im), Alpine (email). It runs some daemons for me like FTP, tvheadend, sshd, minidlna, bubbleupnp (DLNA forwarding server) and probably some I have forgotten.
I also have tried running i2p-router on it, which does run ok, but I find the i2p software is fairly intense. I think it is because it does a lot of encrypt/decrypting of stuff. I've found when I run i2p server for long enough it begins using 100% of the CPU. Their FAQ gives some remedies which I have checked all of according to my ability and I can't seem to control the load the software creates.
If I leave i2p going, eventually the system will fail. Like it freezes or just stops responding to input nad drops off the network. I guess this is the CT overheating.
I monitor the system temp using 'sensors' command which shows temps similar to those said in this thread.
At idle in ambient (not air-conditioned) room: about 37-40C
Medium load (me using it to download or updating software etc): about 40-49C
Heavy load: from 49C to 54C
I have never gotten a reading over about 53.8C so I make the assumption that the system is shutting itself off about 60C or thereabouts.
Is there anyway to have the system temp _logged_ so I can push the CT as hard as possible and after failure I can see what the temp readings were?
