SubjectSystem Information
Date
I am finally going to be free this summer starting in two weeks to do
a little programming on the side, before and after my field training.
I am interested in a System Information program. I don't know how many
of you have used Norton Utilities, WinProbe, Quarterdeck Manifest, or hell,
even MSD (Microsoft Debugging Utilit - comes with MSDOS), but I believe
we could all make like easier on each other if we had a standard way of
reporting the information of a system.
So I guess I have two questions. One, does something like this exist out
there?? And two, I have noticed most of the information is already on
the system, through various means such as /dev/kmem or /proc, the info
given from the netstat, df, and dmesg commands, and through a listing of
all the /lib stuff (for vers of libc etc). Does this sound like a project
that needs to be taken up?
I believe that the future development of kernels would be greatly aided
with a program like this, possible with an option to mail a concise list
of this stuff to an address. Just curious, and if you have any thoughts,
let me know.

Thanks!
