Question Need disk auditing program


I've in the past run a script that includes df, fdisk, cat fstab, blkid, etc. to capture the state of my multiple disks/partitions. I've got to think someone has written an app that gathers all the disk data like my script, but in a prettier format and perhaps integrated too. I have yet to find it however. Has anyone seen such a beast?

Thanks,
Jim.

Don't know why you think you script isn't sufficient.
Good enough for RHEL and SuSE - on your CentOS system have a look at "sosreport". No doubt you can find similar for other distros as well.

That's not really what I need.

Thanks,

It work, that's correct however I just wanted to know if anyone else had solved the problem in a bit more formal way. I'll look at sosreport.

Thanks,
Jim.
