I've finally found a purpose for my Tinkerboard that works: my own personal Terraria server .
I got a little pi case for it with a little fan, it's pretty cute.
And here's my server rack where the server sits, next to my NAS.
I set up a script to regularly log the cpu/gpu temps as well, as I don't think the Tinkerboard has proper passive cooling or throttling.
[email protected]:~$ cat ~/Desktop/tShock/poll_temp.sh #!/bin/bash LOG="/home/linaro/Desktop/tShock/temp.log" touch $LOG while(true); do date -Iseconds >> $LOG echo -n " Zone 0: " >> $LOG cat /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone0/temp >> $LOG echo -n " Zone 1: " >> $LOG cat /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone1/temp >> $LOG echo >> $LOG #tail -n3 $LOG sleep 5 done [email protected]:~$
I found that the fan only knocks off a few degrees, but that's better than nothing.
Idling with the server open but nobody in it, it runs at about 32-40°C 21-40°C. When 1 person is in the server, it jumps to 40-52°C. I have yet to log temperature when 2 people are in it, though last time it ran flawlessly the entire time. It runs the same with 2 people
I wonder what else this red-headed step child of arm microcontrollers can do (successfully).
