Say you have a machine hosting ESX, which you do not necessarily have KVM hooked upto. Not a corporate environment, a single box at home.
Is there a way to monitor the CPU heat on this effectively? Is there a way to place a VM and configure in such a way to be a monitoring station for the (actual physical hardware of ESX) heat?
(DOES NOT have to be inside VM - any method!?)
edit suppose i rephrase to say, if i insert a windows/linux/etc vm in the esx, and get tools which will measure the cpu temp from the gui there, can i trust the measurement it gives me?
