NAME

       facter - Gather system information

SYNOPSIS

       Collect and display facts about the system.

USAGE

       facter [-h|--help] [-t|--timing] [-d|--debug] [-p|--puppet] [-v|--version]
         [-y|--yaml] [-j|--json] [--plaintext] [--external-dir DIR] [--no-external-dir]
         [fact] [fact] [...]

DESCRIPTION

       Collect  and display facts about the current system. The library behind
       Facter is easy  to  expand,  making  Facter  an  easy  way  to  collect
       information about a system from within the shell or within Ruby.

       If  no  facts  are  specifically  asked  for,  then  all  facts will be
       returned.

EXAMPLE

       Display all facts:

           $ facter
           architecture => amd64
           blockdevices => sda,sr0
           domain => example.com
           fqdn => puppet.example.com
           hardwaremodel => x86_64
           [...]

       Display a single fact:

           $ facter kernel
           Linux

       Format facts as JSON:

           $ facter --json architecture kernel hardwaremodel
           {
             "architecture": "amd64",
             "kernel": "Linux",
             "hardwaremodel": "x86_64"
           }
