    Yes.

    Your original log file image shows that Interim periodic logging is set to 10 minutes (Preferences->Logging interval = 10 minutes). So interim results are reported in the log file every 10 minutes, this includes a snapshot of the temperature information at that time.

    The current Temperature collection interval is set with the option, Preferences->Temp / Battery, sample every x seconds (which by default is every 1 second). The Maximum and Minimum temperatures are based on these samples (i.e. by default are updated every 1 second).

      Which one is correct, if I change the interval by changing this "Preferences->Temp / Battery, sample every 5 seconds'?

      1. Maximum, Minimum and Current temperatures will be collected every 5 seconds.
      2. Current temperatures will be collected every 5 seconds but Maximum and Minimum temperatures are still every 1 second.

        1 is kind of correct. 2 is incorrect.

        To be strictly correct it would read:
        Current temperatures are collected every 5 seconds and Maximum, Minimum temperatures are based on these collected temperatures. Maximum, Minimum and Current temperatures are updated every 5 seconds.

          Thank you. That's very helpful.

          Btw, can BurnInTest monitor whether CPU throttled or not?

            No, BurnInTest does not monitor whether the CPU is throttled.
