seeking linux workstation oriented "audit" or "inventory" utility


Does anyone know a utility that consolidates all of the system information details into a common format and creates a report?

I know that there are a dozen utilities -- one tool, one mission -- that will [i]list[/]b various aspects of a running linux workstation.
  • lsmod
  • ls
  • lsattr
  • lscpu
  • lshal
  • lshw, lshw-gtk
  • lsof
  • lspci
  • lspcmcia
  • lspgpot
  • lstat, lstat64
  • lsusb

There are other utilities that will report installed and available packages and other aspects of workstation or system information. The win-dose world has Belarc Advisor http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html that makes an HTML report suitable for filing in electronic or paper form.

In this context, "inventory" refers to a list of the various and several parts of a given workstation rather than something to track the contents of warehouse or other business.

Merci d'avance,
~~~ 0;-Dan

I have this small little script which I found somewhere on the interwebs which pulls basic information and puts it into a nice little HTML file, perhaps this could be the basis for someone to expand on?

Basically put this code into a file, chmod it to executable and then run it issuing:

Code:
./sysinfo >> system.html
Code:
 #!/bin/bash

# system_page - A script to produce a system information HTML file

##### Constants

TITLE="System Information for $HOSTNAME"
RIGHT_NOW=$(date +"%x %r %Z")
TIME_STAMP="Updated on $RIGHT_NOW by $USER"

##### Functions

function system_info
{
    echo "<h2>System release info</h2>"
    echo "<p>Function not yet implemented</p>"

}   # end of system_info


function show_uptime
{
    echo "<h2>System uptime</h2>"
    echo "<pre>"
    uptime
    echo "</pre>"

}   # end of show_uptime


function drive_space
{
    echo "<h2>Filesystem space</h2>"
    echo "<pre>"
    df
    echo "</pre>"

}   # end of drive_space


function home_space
{
    # Only the superuser can get this information

    if [ "$(id -u)" = "0" ]; then
        echo "<h2>Home directory space by user</h2>"
        echo "<pre>"
        echo "Bytes Directory"
        du -s /home/* | sort -nr
        echo "</pre>"
    fi

}   # end of home_space



##### Main

cat <<- _EOF_
  <html>
  <head>
      <title>$TITLE</title>
  </head>
  <body>
      <h1>$TITLE</h1>
      <p>$TIME_STAMP</p>
      $(system_info)
      $(show_uptime)
      $(drive_space)
      $(home_space)
  </body>
  </html>
_EOF_
Sorry I can't be much more useful than that.

I realize this is a several month old thread, but just in case it might be useful, the command hwinfo available on some Linux distros, seems to do a fairly comprehensive job.
