Perl scripts are a modest attempt to automate basic tasks when running Operations Acceptance Testing (OAT) for servers.

The script tries to capture most critical information about Unix/Linux servers and highlights potential configuration or system problems at the same time, so it is not a configuration collector alone!

The script has been developed over several hectic days, so errors (although not planned) might exist. Please use with care.

There are not many comments throught the script and that is not best practices for writing good code. However, I view this script as a learning tool for system administrators too so lack of comments is partially left as an exercise.

My goals were:

A) Simplicity to do basic Operations Acceptance Testing (OAT) B) Portability; C) Standard Perl interpreter; D) Many new features; E) Support for different volume managers and file system types; F) No temporary files; G) No repeated runs of similar commands; H) Not to replace more comprehensive debugging tools but provide a quick summary of servers' status;

Like all scripts and programs, this one will continue to change.

I admit the documentation of the code needs to improve!
