Re: get hardware info under linux

You'll get all the hardware information of your machine in Linux from the directory in /proc

You can cat the appropiate file in /proc like cpuinfo, pci etc.. that will list all the recognized hardware info of the server

Using GUI there is a option called Hardware Browser under system i guess. That will show all the H/W info in GUI

Re: get hardware info under linux

Hi,
there are many ways to do this.
"hwinfo" command can be used to get a list of hardware configured in your linux machine.

hwstatus shows the current status of hardware.


P.S:
These commands looks on Suse-linux.I dont know about other distros.

Re: get hardware info under linux

Hi,

Under directory tree is possible get many information:

echo "Kernel Bit: `file /proc/kcore | awk '{print $3}'` "

echo "real memory `cat meminfo | grep MemTotal | cut -d ':' -f2` "

echo "# Processors `cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep "model " | wc -l` "

echo "Processor Type `cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep "model " | tail -1 | cut -d ':' -f2`"

Re: get hardware info under linux

Hi Chris,

 

you can use the dmidecode command which pulls the information from DMI/SMBIOS you will get the complete information of the system. you can also redirect the output to a file

 

command syntax:

# dmidecode -q > dmidecode.txt

 

if you want specific information an example on BIOS mentioned below.

 

command syntax:

# dmidecode --type bios

 

Thanks
