16 commands to check hardware information on Linux


Hi,

16 commands to check hardware information on Linux
Quote:
Hardware information

Like for every thing, there are plenty of commands to check information about the hardware of your linux system. Some commands report only specific hardware components like cpu or memory while the rest cover multiple hardware units.
This post takes a quick look at some of the most commonly used commands to check information and configuration details about various hardware peripherals and devices. The list includes lscpu, hwinfo, lshw, dmidecode, lspci etc.
Hope this helps.
Have fun & enjoy!

It's a decent list, but how it includes hdparm and not smartctl is a bit of a mystery to me.

10+ years I've been using Linux, and I had not heard of lscpu or lsblk until recently. I had always used 'cat /proc/cpuinfo' and blkid instead.
