I wasn't actively monitoring the system temperatures at the time.
Since I can still login to my server, however, I got this (as root):
envstat: unable to open /dev/sysmon: Operation not supported by device
As far as installing mbmon goes, I highly doubt I can do it (since I
have messed up RAM, install processes are messed up). Also, pkglocate
doesn't seem to find mbmon.
