ioscan in linux

Hello!

Does any one know a tool like an ioscan in hpux that will show all the information about hardware that installed, the devices, the status, description.
Maximum information, but not to check the whole /proc FS

Re: ioscan in linux

As far as my ignorance goes I dont know the equivaled but Linux has individual set of commands that can be that can give you the info you need.
(a)lspci ot cat /proc/pci for pci devs
(b)cat /proc/scsi/scsi will give you scsi
(c)procinfo -a
Many more in the /proc system would give you info like CPU and other stuff.

hope this helps

Alternatively for s simple listing try

dmesg | more

one thing thats useful too :
cat /proc/ioports
cat /proc/net/dev

Re: ioscan in linux

Caesar,

You now know ONE of the reasons I like HP-UX better than Linux.

There is no ioscan, nor is there an easy wahy to replicate the functionality.

For NIC cards I use ifconfig.


For disks I use dmesg or ls commands.

The GUI hardware detector in Linux is superior to anything I've seen in HP-UX.

Re: ioscan in linux

Hi SEP!

The ioscan is good (very good)
but still linux have a lot of other things
that hp didn't have nor want to show them.

About the other replay that you wrote,
i didn't think that better give 0 points
that not to give point at all.
If it's change something i had no problem to
give 0 points for answers that not good or wrong.

I give points for the answer after i check the answer and see if it's help.

Shabbat Shalom.

Re: ioscan in linux

Yes Caesar,

There are many aspects of Linux I like better.

It installs more secure out of the box.

They seem to keep up with and get security bullitens out more quickly, responding to the nasty sendmail stuff with usable updates on the red hat web site within days not weeks.

They get enhanced features into commands better, but sometimes vary from Unix standards too quickly in an effort to SET a new standard.

I tried to take a great du command to HP-UX to help find some files dumped in the root fs that didn't belong there and could not get it to work at all.

That kind of stuff is annoying.

I think HP-UX is a world class reliable OS. I think Linux is getting there but needs some improvement.

In all things, the right tool for the right job. I'm happily running a web hosting business on Red Hat 7.3 right now because of many factors mostly license cost however..

Good Luck.

Shabbat Shalom.

Hey, its past Shabbat there now! I'm telling!

Be well.
