I want to thank Francisco, Andrew, Musa, Kwanghoon and Mathew for their 
prompt response.

Most replies stated that a prtdiag -v should show me some internal 
temperature readings. Running this command on my Ultra-30, unfortunately 
didn't show any information about temperatures what so ever. Maybe 
someone knows another command that will show the temperatures inside my 

Mathew said that the /var/adm/message log was a typical CPU fan 
malfunction, so this is the next thing that I will be investigating over 
the next few days.
