Sorry, mistype in prtpicl command. It should be:

/usr/sbin/prtpicl -v -c temperature-sensor

Thanks for the reminder Rich.

The simple answer is that the "die" temperature is the temperature of the 
cpu  chip's silicon. It has nothing to do with the shutdown temperatuve of 
the workstation.

I also got several answers to the question I didn't ask, but really wanted 
to know -- How to you find out what the warning and shutdown temperatures 
are on you workstation? The answer is at:

Basically use the "/usr/sbin/prtpicl -v -c temperature-monitor" command.

Now you can't ask for better response than to get an answer for a question 
you wanted answered, but didn't ask ;-)
