    BTW I found the application: it is hddtemp

    Debian description:
    Utility to monitor the temperature of your hard drive
    hddtemp will give you the temperature of your PATA, SATA or SCSI hard
    drive by reading Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology
    (S.M.A.R.T.) information (on drives that support this feature). Only
    modern hard drives have a temperature sensor.
