read_serial_temperature

Sadly there is no documentation for this plugin

This munin-node plugin reads a temperature value from a serial port,
provided by a Arduino with temperature sensor.
For details see: http://amber.bonhoeffer.nl/temperatuur/


Linux: "/dev/usb/ttyUSB[n]" or "/dev/ttyUSB[n]"
    first for for RedHat, second form for Debian.
    e.g. "/dev/usb/ttyUSB0"
