MagniComp's SysInfo provides Unix/Linux System Administrators with extremely detailed, platform independent hardware, software, and OS configuration data for most Unix/Linux platforms. SysInfo enables System Administrators to quickly see a high level view of a system's configuration or dive deeply into very low level configuration data. You can grab something as "simple" as a system's model name or you can plunge down to detailed information on disk drives to view a drive's serial number and RPM speed.

SysInfo supports both a sophisticated Command Line Interface (CLI) for consumption by both humans and programs, as well as a Graphical User Interface (GUI) to browse the volumes of data available. In addition, the following APIs are supported:

Here is just some of the types of information that may be provided:

  • Extremely detailed hardware (device) information

  • Kernel parameters

  • System configuration parameters

  • Installed software packages

  • Host name

  • Host name aliases

  • Host network addresses

  • Host ID

  • System serial number

  • Manufacturer of the system's hardware

  • System model name

  • CPU type

  • Application architecture

  • Kernel architecture

  • Amount of main memory

  • Operating system name

  • Operating system version

  • Kernel version

The detail of information varies according to the underlying abilities of each OS, but the data is provided in a consistant manner across all supported platforms.
