       HardInfo - System profiler and benchmark for Linux systems.


       hardinfo [OPTION...]


       Is  a  system profiler and benchmark for Linux systems, that gathers information about the
       hardware  and  operating  system,  performs  benchmarks,  and  generates   reports.    The
       information gathered is presented on an simple and intuitive GUI.

       Information is grouped in four main groups: Computer, Devices, Network, and Benchmarks.

       The Computer group contains mostly information about basic software.  This includes but is
       not limited to  information  about  the  operating  system  (kernel  version,  C  library,
       distribution,  etc.),  kernel modules, locale information, filesystem usage, users/groups,
       and development tools.

       The Devices group contains information about the hardware, as detected  by  the  operating
       system.   Hardinfo  is incapable of detecting hardware by itself, it merely lists what the
       operating system was able to find.  This includes, but  does  not  limit  to,  information
       about  the  processor  (including  cache  layout, known bugs, and feature flags with their
       explanation), devices (such as USB, PCI, and Input devices), among other things.

       The Network group lists information about network interfaces, routing table, DNS  servers,
       and other networking-related topics.

       The  Benchmarks group allow performing simple benchmarks to test CPU and FPU capabilities,
       as well as some of the  graphical  user  interface  capabilities  as  well.   In  previous
       versions,  it  was  possible  to send the benchmark results to a central server, so it was
       possible to compare the benchmarks with  other  Hardinfo  users;  this  service  has  been
       deactivated in the mean time.

       Reports  can be generated either by invoking Hardinfo with special command-line parameters
       (see below), or by clicking the "Generate Report" button  in  the  GUI.   Reports  can  be
       customized in the GUI and saved in either HTML or plain text formats.


       -h, --help
              Show help options

       -r, --generate-report
              creates a report and prints to standard output

       -f, --report-format
              chooses a report format (text, html)

       -b, --run-benchmark
              run benchmark; requires to be loaded

       -l, --list-modules
              lists modules

       -m, --load-module
              specify module to load

       -a, --autoload-deps
              automatically load module dependencies

       -v, --version
              shows program version and quit
