      Description

      Support for sensors on newer Linux kernels was implemented in ZBX-282. According to https://www.zabbix.com/documentation/2.4/manual/appendix/items/sensor, we should be able to construct proper arguments for the item if we look at the output of sensors -u. For instance:

      $ sensors -u | sed -n '10,16 p'
      coretemp-isa-0000
      Adapter: ISA adapter
      Physical id 0:
        temp1_input: 35.000
        temp1_max: 85.000
        temp1_crit: 105.000
        temp1_crit_alarm: 0.000
      

      However, the following item does not work, even though documentation gives a similar example:

      $ sbin/zabbix_agentd -t 'sensor[coretemp-isa-0000,temp1]'
      sensor[coretemp-isa-0000,temp1]               [m|ZBX_NOTSUPPORTED] [Cannot obtain sensor information.]
