What is AMDFAN

My fork of an abandoned amdgpu_fan project.

A utility to control or monitor the fan speeds of GPUs in Linux that use the amdgpu driver.

With security fixes, improvements and features that I couldn’t find in any of the alternatives.

Improvements

  • monitor the fan speeds
  • monitor GPU temperatures
  • allow manual fan speed
  • adjustable frequency
  • adjustable temperature threshold
  • security fixes
  • broken functionality addressed, now able to set system controlled fans
  • additional tests and linting

Documentation:

I’ll try to keep the README.md updated on Github for the documentation. Let me know there if you want any features, or feel free to contribute to the project as well.
