Unix Discovery Script
Posted on 2006-04-27
I am looking for a relatively simple "shell script" or similar that returns system information.
Kind of stuff I'm after is - computer name, dns, IP addresses, mac addresses, system time, disk info, number of cpus, cpuspeed, memory, serial number [ideally list of software too].
I was hoping most of this could be returned into the output stream and then redirected to a file on a windows share
I have access to a wonderful and very complete tool called Magnicomp Sysinfo, which I am very happy with. But I am looking for something lighterweight and free which could be used just to return basic asset information on a unix box without actually installing anything on that box.
Any pointers or sample scripts would be great.
I am a "windows person" unfortunately so have only very limited unix knowledge
thanks in advance
