Listing/Viewing Hardware Specification in Debian Linux

Listing/Viewing Hardware Specification in Debian Linux


I am auditing an ESX Server running Debian Linux 2.6.8 and I want to view all hardware specification like Memory, Processor Type, Driver Types, Mother Board, System Model etc.

What tools should I use? Or is there any commands to do this?

I used Belarc for Windows and it gave me wonderful results.

Any hints will be much appreciated.


RE: Listing/Viewing Hardware Specification in Debian Linux

Debian should have the command 'lshw' available. It will list the hardware in the system.

It will even generate an HTML page for easy viewing, use 'lshw -html'.

As far as GUIs go, I don't know of one offhand. lshw used to have a mode that would work in X, but I've never used it.
