HBA make/model how do you find it on RedHat

I am more acquainted with the Solaris side of Unix and learning the ropes on Linux. How does one go about discovering what kind of HBAs are installed on a redhat box. This is what I see under /proc/scsi

# ls -l scsi
total 0
-r--r--r-- 1 root root 0 Jan 5 13:30 device_info
-r--r--r-- 1 root root 0 Jan 5 13:30 scsi
dr-xr-xr-x 2 root root 0 Jan 5 13:30 sg

# ls -l scsi/sg
total 0
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 Jan 5 13:31 allow_dio
-r--r--r-- 1 root root 0 Jan 5 13:31 debug
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 Jan 5 13:31 def_reserved_size
-r--r--r-- 1 root root 0 Jan 5 13:31 device_hdr
-r--r--r-- 1 root root 0 Jan 5 13:31 devices
-r--r--r-- 1 root root 0 Jan 5 13:31 device_strs
-r--r--r-- 1 root root 0 Jan 5 13:31 version

I don't see any references to Emulex or Qlogic, which is typical for most HBAs (atleast in our environment).

You can find a lot of this type of info in this file (created by kudzu):


However, I'm not coming up with what HBA refers to so I could be wrong--just being thick I'm sure, but it's just not ringing any bells for me....

lspci might be useful too; less detailed list.

Try "lshw" if you want the device as hardware. The results should include the names of any controller chips or cards.

Otherwise, what kind of information is meant by the request "what kind"?
