Re: removing an envsys temperature limit

No. That was about a 54 degC CritMax for CPU Temp.

It doesn't report any limit for sensor0 (l_temp), so there must be a way of 
having "no limit".

The low CritMax the other thread was about? No. It must be the BIOS, but 
there's nothing I can sensibly do about that.

I did set the CritMax limit to 70 degC in envsys.conf.

This thread is about a CritMin CPU Temp limit of 45 degC.
I don't think there's a sensible minimal CPU temperature. Maybe AMD specifies 
a minimum temperature of, say, -20 degC for the Opteron 246, but, what shall 
I do if I fall below that? Start some idle jobs to heat the CPU?

Of course, I can set the limit to some ridiculously low value, but that's 
still displayed in envstat output.

One could argue that a CPU temp reading below 45 degC must be a sensor failure, 
so it's OK to shut down.
