Amdgpu no fan speed

before anything this is how i got amdgpu running (instead of the proprietary driver), just in case that this particular setup is what is causing problems:

radeon.cik_support=0 amdgpu.cik_support=1 radeon.si_support=0 amdgpu.si_support=1

options amdgpu si_support=1
options amdgpu cik_support=1

options radeon si_support=0
options radeon cik_support=0

So basically my issue is that the gpu fan speed is not showing up (sensors, corectrl, etc)

sensors ouput:
Adapter: PCI adapter
vddgfx:      850.00 mV 
fan1:             N/A  (min =    0 RPM, max = 6000 RPM)
edge:         +31.0°C  (crit = +104000.0°C, hyst = -273.1°C)
power1:        6.21 W  (cap =  47.00 W)

tried doing this like so:

chip "amdgpu-pci-0100*"
set fan1_div 4

and then:

sudo sensors -s
Error: File /etc/sensors.d/fan-speed-control.conf, line 1: Parse error in chip name

or (if chip "amdgpu-*")

Error: File /etc/sensors.d/fan-speed-control.conf, line 2: Unknown feature name
amdgpu-pci-0100: No such subfeature known

also, assuming that this is the correct path:

cat /sys/class/drm/card0/device/hwmon/hwmon4/fan1_enable

i did install/started amdgpu-fan.service, nothing.

pwmconfig output:

Found the following devices:
   hwmon0 is sony_controller_battery_00:06:f5:d9:70:1f
   hwmon1 is atk0110
   hwmon2 is fam15h_power
   hwmon3 is k10temp
   hwmon4 is amdgpu

Found the following PWM controls:
   hwmon4/pwm1           current value: 79

Giving the fans some time to reach full speed...
Found the following fan sensors:
   hwmon1/fan1_input     current speed: 3026 RPM
   hwmon1/fan2_input     current speed: 3183 RPM
cat: hwmon4/fan1_input: No such device
   hwmon4/fan1_input     current speed:  RPM

btw, what does this mean?

Found the following PWM controls:
   hwmon4/pwm1           current value: 79

Afterwards i ran fancontrol, it complained about bad configuration, ran pwmconfig again and went throught its configuration wizard, did nothing at first, ran again and my gpu fan went 100% and no matter what i did, it continued running full speed. it got back to normal after rebooting

apparently corectrl is now able to change my gpu fan speed, but still no temps edit: gpu fan speed. however after configuring fancontrol with pwmconfig i got fancontrol service running properly, i was also able to configure it with fancontrol-gui, but no fan speed…

btw pwmconfig is a little confusing, so i need help with these numbers:

# Configuration file generated by pwmconfig, changes will be lost
FCFANS= hwmon4/pwm1=

You could try running with the additional kernel parameter acpi_enforce_resources=lax, since it would seem to me the programs simply cannot access the necessary information.
You would be able to test my theory by checking the output of
cat /sys/class/drm/card0/device/hwmon/hwmon4/fan1_input

Now the gpu device is hwmon2 for whatever reason and i got ‘no such device’ from hwmon2/fan1_output… corectrl is able to change it, but it can’t read it for whatever reason…

After kernel parameter acpi_enforce_resources=lax
you have to do in shell: sudo sensors-detect --auto
because the “count of devices” changes when using this kernel parameter…
Psensors is helpful to determin the right parameter for GPU-Fan.
The configuration for displaying the sensors is in /etc/sensors.d

Thanks, but i probably won’t use acpi_enforce_resources=lax anyway. i tried Psensors, same thing.

What tells:
sudo sensors -u

this is likely a bug, i don’t know where to submit to though.

Well you could try kernel 5.4 and 5.12. to get a clearer picture and identify if the problem is only with that specific kernel version.
And regarding filing a bug you can read up on it here.

tried both kernels, no difference regarding gpu sensors.

Thank you, will check it soon.

So… i’ve submitted this issue here, according to it:

See for reference.  Try reading /sys/class/drm/card0/device/hwmon/hwmon4/pwm1
Some older boards only supported percentage based (pwm) fan controls.

which seems to be the case for this gpu (i think its gcn 2), so this is not a bug. :partying_face:

so i think i’m going to submit a request feature to some apps like corectrl to take this particular behavior into account when trying to monitor fan speed.

Thank you guys for all your help :smiley:

Hmmm i did not know that. Well nice to know and happy that you now atleast know what is happening and why. I hope you thanked him.
