hardware

Latest hardware release on the Python Cheeseshop (PyPI) Build status of hardware on Travis CI

Hardware detection and classification utilities

Homepage: https://github.com/redhat-cip/hardware

Features

  • detect hardware features of a Linux systems:
    • RAID
    • hard drives
    • IPMI
    • network cards
    • DMI infos
    • memory settings
    • processor features
  • filter hardware according to hardware profiles

Usage

Run the hardware-detect program:

hardware-detect --human

Runtime dependencies

The hardware detection is divided in modules that detects a specific hardware type. Each module have its own dependencies.

Therefore, we cannot enforce installing all the dependencies as some are not relevant regarding a particular hardware type. To avoid a situation where we cannot use/install hardware because of one of those deps, we do prefer let users installing the one they need.

The hardware detection code will ignore all the missing deps and continue, so not installing a deps is not fatal.

Please find bellow the list of dependencies per module:

Areca

Logical disks

  • hdparm
  • sdparm
  • smartmontools

Networking
