Hi all,

I'd like to know what are the best tools to detect hardware issues on a physical machine running - centos/redhat , beside mcelog/syslog. Seeking your valuable advise. Thank you!!

Check with your hardware manufacturer, for example HP have the very handy Systems Management Homepage.

Depends on your problems

For HDD problems there are:
https://www.smartmontools.org/

For Memory Problems there is:
http://www.memtest.org/

After that syslog is good place to start looking.

and it also depends on if it is RHEL 6 or RHEL7

7 is using sustemD
and most of the logs are no longer in /var/log

Hi...

In addition to the utilities codix mentioned, for potential CPU issues, you can give cpuburn a try. I also found this article, which might be of help.
