NAME

       osinfo-query - Query information in the database

SYNOPSIS

       osinfo-query [OPTIONS...] TYPE [CONDITION-1 [CONDITION-2 ...]]

DESCRIPTION

       The "osinfo-query" command allows extraction of information from the database. TYPE can be
       one of "os", "platform", "device", or "deployment". With no conditions specified, all
       entities of the given type will be listed.

         # List all operating systems
         $ osinfo-query os
          Short ID             | Name       ...
         ----------------------+-----------
          centos-6.0           | CentOS 6.0 ...
          centos-6.1           | CentOS 6.1 ...
          ...

       Conditions allow filtering based on specific properties of an entity.  For example, to
       filter only distros from the Fedora Project, use

         # List all operating systems
         $ osinfo-query os vendor="Fedora Project"
          Short ID             | Name          ...
         ----------------------+--------------
          fedora1              | Fedora Core 1 ...
          fedora2              | Fedora Core 2 ...
          ...

       The set of fields which are printed can be controlled using the "--fields" command line
       argument:

         # List all operating systems
         $ osinfo-query --fields=short-id,version os vendor="Fedora Project"
          Short ID             | Version
         ----------------------+----------
          fedora1              | 1
          fedora2              | 2
          ...
