And since this is the bounty forum, if any of the original requesters want to step up, it would be accepted gratefully.

or if you're Canadian, email money transfer works better; my username at eire.ca.

I did the work before you arrived and nobody ever responded to me. I suspect the less than friendly responses to the original request put people off.

I wouldn't call it "less than friendly" just someone pointing out the likely reason that this work wasn't done as part of the original product (i.e. nobody uses Fahrenheit except Americans; though it's also used in Belize and Bahamas as well as a few other small island nations.)


I think it is a fairly common (though certainly not universal) pattern on this board. Random people show up and make requests, someone does the work and then the OP is never heard from again. I'm not in it for the money anyway, else I wouldn't have posted my code on Github. Just wanted to contribute to the project that helps me earn a living. If someone finds enough value in it to reward me personally, so much the better!

Just noticed this thread.
I'm game. I'd be interested in throwing in another $20 to see this implemented. It's critical to know that your equipment isn't cooking.

The pull request got merged back in December 2017.  I'm seeing the new code in 2.4.3 Development branch.  I assume this will also hit 2.4.3 Release once it comes out.

Nice! Well thank you for the update. I think it'll be a handy addition to PfSense. Getting alerts your stuff is hot is just as important as getting alerts that your stuff is crashing.

My patch only adds the option for changing the unit of measurement displayed. Adding alerting is beyond the scope of what a firewall is supposed to do; that's what network monitoring systems are for!
