       inxi  - Command line system information script for console and IRC



       inxi [-AbBCdDEfFGhiIjJlLmMnNopPrRsSuUVwyYzZ]

       inxi    [-c    NUMBER]    [--sensors-exclude    SENSORS]   [--sensors-use   SENSORS]   [-t
       [c|m|cm|mc][NUMBER]] [-v NUMBER] [-W LOCATION] [--weather-unit {m|i|mi|im}] [-y WIDTH]

       inxi [-x|-xx|-xxx|-a] -OPTION(s)

       All short form options have long form variants - see below for  these  and  more  advanced


       inxi  is  a  command  line system information script built for console and IRC. It is also
       used a debugging tool for forum technical  support  to  quickly  ascertain  users'  system
       configurations  and  hardware.  inxi  shows  system hardware, CPU, drivers, Xorg, Desktop,
       Kernel, gcc version(s),  Processes,  RAM  usage,  and  a  wide  variety  of  other  useful

       inxi  output varies depending on whether it is being used on CLI or IRC, with some default
       filters and color options applied only for IRC use.  Script colors can be  turned  off  if
       desired  with  -c  0, or changed using the -c color options listed in the STANDARD OPTIONS
       section below.


       In order to maintain basic privacy and security, inxi used on  IRC  automatically  filters
       out  your  network  device  MAC  address, WAN and LAN IP, your /home username directory in
       partitions, and a few other items.

       Because inxi is often used on forums for support, you can also trigger this filtering with
       the  -z  option (-Fz, for example). To override the IRC filter, you can use the -Z option.
       This can be useful in debugging network connection issues online in a  private  chat,  for


       Options can be combined if they do not conflict. You can either group the letters together
       or separate them.

       Letters with numbers can have no gap or a gap at your discretion, except when  using   -t.
       Note  that if you use an option that requires an additional argument, that must be last in
       the short form group of options. Otherwise you can use those separately as well.

       For example: inxi -AG | inxi -A -G | inxi -b | inxi -c10 | inxi -FxxzJy90 | inxi -bay

       Note that all the short form options have long form equivalents, which are  listed  below.
       However, usually the short form is used in examples in order to keep things simple.

       These are available options sections:

       * STANDARD OPTIONS Primary data types trigger items.

       * FILTER OPTIONS Apply a variety of output filters.

       * OUTPUT CONTROL OPTIONS Change default colors, widths, heights, output types, etc.

       * EXTRA DATA OPTIONS What -x, -xx, -xxx, and -a add to the output.

       * ADVANCED OPTIONS Modify behavior or choice of data sources, and other advanced switches.

       * DEBUGGING OPTIONS For development use mainly, or contributing datasets to the project.


       -A , --audio
              Show Audio/sound device(s) information, including device driver. Show running sound
              server(s). See -xxA to show all sound servers detected.

       -b , --basic
              Show basic output, short form. Same as: inxi -v 2

       -B , --battery
              Show system battery (ID-x) data, charge,  condition,  plus  extra  information  (if
              battery  present).  Uses  /sys  or,  for  BSDs  without  systctl  battery data, use
              --dmidecode to force its use. dmidecode does not have very  much  information,  and
              none  about  current battery state/charge/voltage. Supports multiple batteries when
              using /sys or sysctl data.

              Note that for charge:, the output shows the current charge, as well as its value as
              a  percentage of the available capacity, which can be less than the original design
              capacity. In the following example, the actual current available  capacity  of  the
              battery is 22.2 Wh.

              charge: 20.1 Wh (95.4%)

              The  condition:  item  shows  the  remaining  available  capacity / original design
              capacity, and then this figure as a percentage of original  capacity  available  in
              the battery.

              condition: 22.2/36.4 Wh (61%)

              With  -x,  or  if  voltage  difference  is  critical, volts: item shows the current
              voltage, and the min: voltage. Note that if the current is below the minimum listed
              the  battery  is  essentially  dead and will not charge.  Test that to confirm, but
              that's technically how it's supposed to work.

              volts: 12.0 min: 11.4

              With -x shows attached Device-x information (mouse, keyboard,  etc.)  if  they  are
              battery powered.

              See -E.

       -c , --color

       -C , --cpu
              Show  full CPU output (if each item available): basic CPU topology, model, type, L2
              cache, average speed of all cores (if > 1  core,  otherwise  speed  of  the  core),
              min/max speeds for CPU, and per CPU clock speed. More data available with -x, -xxx,
              and -a options.

              Explanation of CPU type (type: MT MCP) abbreviations:

              * AMCP - Asymmetric Multi Core Processor. More than 1 core per CPU, and  more  than
              one core type (single and multithreaded cores in the same CPU).

              * AMP - Asymmetric Multi Processing (more than 1 physical CPU, but not identical in
              terms of core counts or min/max speeds).

              * MT - Multi/Hyper Threaded CPU (more than 1 thread per core, previously HT).

              * MST - Multi and Single Threaded CPU (a CPU with both Single  and  Multi  Threaded

              * MCM - Multi Chip Model (more than 1 die per CPU).

              * MCP - Multi Core Processor (more than 1 core per CPU).

              * SMP - Symmetric Multi Processing (more than 1 physical CPU).

              * UP - Uni (single core) Processor.

              Note  that min/max: speeds are not necessarily true in cases of overclocked CPUs or
              CPUs in turbo/boost mode. See  -Ca  for  alternate  base/boost:  speed  data,  more
              granular cache data, and more.

                Info: 2x 8-core model: Intel Xeon E5-2620 v4 bits: 64 type: MT MCP SMP
                  cache: L2: 2x 2 MiB (4 MiB)
                Speed (MHz): avg: 1601 min/max: 1200/3000 cores: 1: 1280 2: 1595 3: 1416
                  ... 32: 1634

       -d , --disk-full,--optical
              Show optical drive data as well as -D hard drive data. With -x, adds a feature line
              to the output. Also shows floppy disks if present. Note that there  is  no  current
              way to get any information about the floppy device that we are aware of, so it will
              simply show the floppy ID without any extra data. -xx adds a few more features.

       -D , --disk
              Show Hard Disk info. Shows total disk space and  used  percentage.  The  disk  used
              percentage includes space used by swap partition(s), since those are not usable for
              data storage. Also, unmounted partitions are not counted in  disk  use  percentages
              since inxi has no access to the used amount.

              If the system has RAID or other logical storage, and if inxi can determine the size
              of those vs their components, you will see the storage total raw and usable  sizes,
              plus  the  percent used of the usable size. The no argument short form of inxi will
              show only the usable (or total if no usable) and  used  percent.  If  there  is  no
              logical  storage  detected,  only  total:  and  used:  will show. Sample (with RAID
              logical size calculated):

              Local Storage: total: raw: 5.49 TiB usable: 2.80 TiB used: 1.35 TiB (48.3%)

              Without logical storage detected:

              Local Storage: total: 2.89 TiB used: 1.51 TiB (52.3%)

              Also shows per disk information: Disk ID, type (if present), vendor (if  detected),
              model,  and  size. See Extra Data Options (-x options) and Admin Extra Data Options
              (--admin options) for many more features.

       -E, --bluetooth
              Show bluetooth device(s), drivers. Show Report: with HCI  ID,  state,  address  per
              device  (requires  bt-adapter  or  hciconfig),  and  if  available (hciconfig only)
              bluetooth version (bt-v).  See Extra Data Options for more.

              If bluetooth shows as status: down, shows bt-service: state and rfkill software and
              hardware blocked states, and rfkill ID.

              Note  that  Report-ID:  indicates  that the HCI item was not able to be linked to a
              specific device, similar to IF-ID: in -n.

              If your internal bluetooth device does not show, it's possible  that  it  has  been
              disabled, if you try enabling it using for example:

              hciconfig hci0 up

              and it returns a blocked by RF-Kill error, you can do one of these:

              connmanctl enable bluetooth


              rfkill list bluetooth

              rfkill unblock bluetooth

       --filter, -z
              See FILTER OPTIONS.

       -f , --flags
              Show  all  CPU  flags  used, not just the short list. Not shown with -F in order to
              avoid spamming. ARM CPUs: show features items.

       -F , --full
              Show Full output for inxi. Includes all Upper Case line letters (except -J and  -W)
              plus  --swap, -s and -n. Does not show extra verbose options such as -d -f -i -J -l
              -m -o -p -r -t -u -x unless you use those arguments  in  the  command,  e.g.:  inxi

       -G , --graphics
              Show Graphic device(s) information, including details of device and display drivers
              (X: loaded:, and, if applicable: unloaded:,  failed:,  and  active  gpu:  drivers),
              display protocol (if available), display server (and/or Wayland compositor), vendor
              and version number, e.g.:

              Display: x11 server: Xorg v: 1.15.1


              Display: wayland server: v: 1.20.1 with: Xwayland v: 20.1

              If protocol is not detected, shows:

              Display: server: Xorg 1.15.1

              Also shows screen resolution(s) (per monitor/X screen). For OpenGL renderer,
              OpenGL  core  profile  version/OpenGL  version;  for  VESA:  data  (for Xvesa); for
              Wayland:  GBM/EGL data (not implemented).

              Compositor information will show if detected using -xx option or always if detected
              and Wayland since the compositor is the server with Wayland.

              -Gxx shows monitor data as well, if detected.

       -h , --help
              The  help  menu.  Features  dynamic  sizing to fit into terminal window. Set script
              global COLS_MAX_CONSOLE if you want a different default value, or use -y <width> to
              temporarily override the defaults or actual window width.

       -i , --ip
              Show  WAN  IP  address and local interfaces (latter requires ifconfig or ip network
              tool), as well as network output from -n. Not  shown  with  -F  for  user  security
              reasons.  You  shouldn't paste your local/WAN IP.  Shows both IPv4 and IPv6 link IP

       -I , --info
              Show Information: processes, uptime, memory, IRC client (or shell type  if  run  in
              shell,  not  IRC), inxi version. See -Ix, -Ixx, and -Ia for extra information (init
              type/version, runlevel, packages).

              Note: if -m is used or triggered, the memory item will show  in  the  main  Memory:
              report of -m, not in Info:.

              Raspberry  Pi  only: uses vcgencmd get_mem gpu to get gpu RAM amount, if user is in
              video group and vcgencmd is installed. Uses this result  to  increase  the  Memory:
              amount and used: amounts.

       -j, --swap
              Shows all active swap types (partition, file, zram). When this option is used, swap
              partition(s) will not show on the -P line to avoid redundancy.

              To show partition labels or UUIDs (when available and relevant), use with -l or -u.

       -J , --usb
              Show USB data for attached Hubs and Devices. Hubs also show  number  of  ports.  Be
              aware  that a port is not always external, some may be internal, and either used or
              unused (for example, a motherboard USB header connector that is not used).

              Hubs and Devices are listed in order of BusID.

              BusID is generally in this format: BusID-port[.port][.port]:DeviceID

              Device ID is a number created by the kernel,  and  has  no  necessary  ordering  or
              sequence  connection,  but  can be used to match this output to lsusb values, which
              generally shows BusID / DeviceID (except for tree view, which shows ports).

              Examples: Device-3: 4-3.2.1:2 or Hub: 4-0:1

              The rev: 2.0 item refers to the USB revision number, like 1.0 or 3.1.

       -l , --label
              Show partition labels. Use with -j, -o, -p, and -P to show partition  labels.  Does
              nothing without one of those options.

              Sample: -ojpl.

       -L, --logical
              Show Logical volume information, for LVM, LUKS, bcache, etc. Shows size, free space
              (for LVM VG). For LVM, shows Device-[xx]: VG:  (Volume  Group)  size/free,  LV-[xx]
              (Logical  Volume).  LV  shows type, size, and components.  Note that components are
              made up of either containers (aka, logical devices), or physical devices. The  full
              report requires doas/sudo/root.

              Logical  block  devices can be thought of as devices that are made up out of either
              other logical devices, or physical devices. inxi does its best to  show  what  each
              logical  device  is made out of. RAID devices form a subset of all possible Logical
              devices, but have their own section, -R.

              If -R is used with -Lxx, -Lxx will not show RAID information for LVM  RAID  devices
              since  it's  redundant.  If  -R is not used, a simple RAID line will appear for LVM
              RAID in -Lxx.

              -Lxx also shows all components and devices. Note that since components  can  go  in
              many  levels,  each level per primary component is indicated by either another 'c',
              or ends with a 'p' device, the physical device. The number of c's or p's  indicates
              the depth, so you can see which component belongs to which.

              -L   shows   only   the   top   level  components/devices  (like  -R).   -La  shows
              component/device size, maj:min ID, mapped  name  (if  applicable),  and  puts  each
              component/device on its own line.


                Device-10: mybackup type: LUKS dm: dm-28 size: 6.36 GiB Components:

              It  is  easier  to  follow  the  flow  of components and devices using -y1. In this
              example, there is one primary component  (c-1),  md1,  which  is  made  up  of  two
              components  (cc-1,2),  dm-26  and  dm-27. These are respectively made from physical
              devices (p-1) sdj2 and sdk2.

              Other types of logical block handling like LUKS, bcache show as:

              Device-[xx] [name/id] type: [LUKS|Crypto|bcache]:

       -m , --memory
              Memory (RAM) data. Does not display with -b or -F unless  you  use  -m  explicitly.
              Ordered  by  system  board  physical  system  memory array(s) (Array-[number]), and
              individual memory devices (Device-[number]). Physical memory array data shows array
              capacity,  number  of  devices supported, and Error Correction information. Devices
              shows locator data (highly variable in syntax), size, speed, type (eg: type: DDR3).

              Note: -m uses dmidecode, which must be run as root (or start inxi with  doas/sudo),
              unless  you figure out how to set up doas/sudo to permit dmidecode to read /dev/mem
              as user. speed and bus-width will not show if No Module Installed is found in size.

              Note: If -m is triggered RAM total/used report will appear in this section, not  in
              -I or -tm items.

              Because dmidecode data is extremely unreliable, inxi will try to make best guesses.
              If you see (check) after  the  capacity  number,  you  should  check  it  with  the
              specifications.  (est)  is  slightly  more reliable, but you should still check the
              real specifications before buying RAM. Unfortunately there is nothing inxi  can  do
              to get truly reliable data about the system RAM; maybe one day the kernel devs will
              put this data into /sys, and make it real data, taken from the actual  system,  not
              dmi  data. For most people, the data will be right, but a significant percentage of
              users will have either a wrong max module size, if present, or max capacity.

              Under dmidecode, Speed: is the expected speed of the memory (what is advertised  on
              the memory spec sheet) and Configured Clock Speed: is what the actual speed is now.
              To handle this, if speed and configured speed values are different,  you  will  see
              this instead:

              Also, if DDR, and speed in MHz, will change to: speed: [speed] MT/S ([speed] MHz)

              If  the  detected speed is logically absurd, like 1 MT/s or 69910 MT/s, adds: note:
              check. Sample:

              See --memory-modules and --memory-short if you want a shorter report.

              Memory (RAM) data. Show only RAM arrays and modules in Memory report.   Skip  empty
              slots. See -m.

              Memory (RAM) data. Show a one line RAM report in Memory. See -m.

              Sample: Report: arrays: 1 slots: 4 modules: 2 type: DDR4

       -M , --machine
              Show  machine data. Device, Motherboard, BIOS, and if present, System Builder (Like
              Lenovo). Older systems/kernels without the required /sys  data  can  use  dmidecode
              instead,  run as root. If using dmidecode, may also show BIOS/UEFI revision as well
              as version. --dmidecode forces use of dmidecode data instead  of  /sys.  Will  also
              attempt  to  show  if  the  system  was booted by BIOS, UEFI, or UEFI [Legacy], the
              latter being legacy BIOS boot mode in a system board using UEFI.

              Device information requires either /sys or dmidecode. Note that other-vm? is a type
              that  means  it's usually a VM, but inxi failed to detect which type, or positively
              confirm which VM it is. Primary VM identification is  via  systemd-detect-virt  but
              fallback  tests  that should also support some BSDs are used. Less commonly used or
              harder to detect VMs may not be correctly detected. If you get an incorrect output,
              post an issue and we'll get it fixed if possible.

              Due  to  unreliable  vendor data, device type will show: desktop, laptop, notebook,
              server, blade, plus some obscure stuff that inxi is unlikely to ever run on.

       -n , --network-advanced
              Show Advanced Network device information in addition to that produced by -N.  Shows
              interface, speed, MAC ID, state, etc.

       -N , --network
              Show Network device(s) information, including device driver. With -x, shows Bus ID,
              Port number.

       -o , --unmounted
              Show unmounted partition information (includes UUID and LABEL if available).  Shows
              file system type if you have lsblk installed (Linux only). For BSD/GNU Linux: shows
              file system type if file is installed, and if you are root or if you have added  to
              /etc/sudoers (sudo v. 1.7 or newer):

              <username> ALL = NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/file (sample)

              doas users: see man doas.conf for setup.

              Does  not  show  components  (partitions  that create the md-raid array) of md-raid

              To show partition labels or UUIDs (when available and relevant), use with -l or -u.

       -p , --partitions-full
              Show full Partition information (-P plus all other detected mounted partitions).

              To show partition labels or UUIDs (when available and relevant), use with -l or -u.

       -P , --partitions
              Show basic Partition information.  Shows, if detected: / /boot /boot/efi /home /opt
              /tmp  /usr  /usr/home  /var  /var/tmp  /var/log  (for  android,  shows /cache /data
              /firmware /system).  If --swap is not used, shows  active  swap  partitions  (never
              shows file or zram type swap). Use -p to see all mounted partitions.

              To show partition labels or UUIDs (when available and relevant), use with -l or -u.

              See -t.

       -r , --repos
              Show distro repository data. Currently supported repo types:

              APK (Alpine Linux + derived versions)

              APT  (Debian,  Ubuntu  +  derived  versions,  as well as RPM based APT distros like
              PCLinuxOS or Alt-Linux)

              CARDS (NuTyX + derived versions)

              EOPKG (Solus)

              NIX (NixOS + other distros as alternate package manager)

              PACMAN (Arch Linux, KaOS + derived versions)

              PACMAN-G2 (Frugalware + derived versions)

              PISI (Pardus + derived versions)

              PKG (OpenBSD, FreeBSD, NetBSD + derived OS types)

              PORTAGE (Gentoo, Sabayon + derived versions)

              PORTS (OpenBSD, FreeBSD, NetBSD + derived OS types)

              SCRATCHPKG (Venom + derived versions)

              SLACKPKG (Slackware + derived versions)

              TCE (TinyCore)

              URPMI (Mandriva, Mageia + derived versions)

              XBPS (Void)

              YUM/ZYPP (Fedora, Red Hat, Suse + derived versions)

              More will be added as distro data is collected. If yours is missing please show  us
              how to get this information and we'll try to add it.

              See -rx, -rxx, and -ra for installed package count information.

       -R , --raid
              Show  RAID  data.  Shows  RAID  devices,  states,  levels,  device/array  size, and
              components. See extra data with -x / -xx.

              md-raid: If device is resyncing, also shows resync progress line.

              Note: supported types: lvm raid, md-raid, softraid, ZFS, and hardware RAID.   Other
              software  RAID  types  may  be  added, if the software RAID can be made to give the
              required output.

              The component ID numbers work like this: mdraid: the numerator is the actual mdraid
              component number; lvm/softraid/ZFS: the numerator is auto-incremented counter only.
              Eg. Online: 1: sdb1

              If hardware RAID is detected, shows basic information. Due to complexity of  adding
              hardware  RAID  device  disk  /  RAID reports, those will only be added if there is
              demand, and reasonable reporting tools.

              Checks inxi application dependencies and recommends, as well as  directories,  then
              shows what package(s) you need to install to add support for each feature.

       -s , --sensors
              Show  output  from  sensors  if  sensors  installed/configured: Motherboard/CPU/GPU
              temperatures; detected fan speeds. GPU temperature  when  available.  Nvidia  shows
              screen  number  for multiple screens. IPMI sensors are also used (root required) if
              present. See Advanced options --sensors-use or --sensors-exclude if you want to use
              only a subset of all sensors, or exclude one.

              Show PCI slots with type, speed, and status information.

              See -j

       -S , --system
              Show  System information: host name, kernel, desktop environment (if in X), distro.
              With -xx show dm - or startx - (only shows if present and running if out of X), and
              if in X, with -xxx show more desktop info, e.g. taskbar or panel.

       -t , --processes
              [c|m|cm|mc  NUMBER] Show processes. If no arguments, defaults to cm. If followed by
              a number, shows that number of processes for each type (default: 5; if in IRC, max:

              Make  sure  that  there  is  no space between letters and numbers (e.g. write as -t

       -t c   - CPU only. With -x, also shows memory for that process on same line.

       -t m   - memory only. With -x, also shows CPU for that process on same line.  If the -I or
              -m lines are not triggered, will also show the system RAM used/total information.

       -t cm  - CPU+memory. With -x, shows also CPU or memory for that process on same line.

       -u , --uuid
              Show  partition  UUIDs.  Use with -j, -o, -p, and -P to show partition labels. Does
              nothing without one of those options.

              Sample: -opju.

       -U , --update
              Note - Maintainer may have disabled this function.

              If inxi -h has no listing for -U then it's disabled.

              Auto-update script. Note: if you installed as root, you must  be  root  to  update,
              otherwise   user   is   fine.   Also   installs   /   updates  this  man  page  to:
              /usr/local/share/man/man1 (if /usr/local/share/man/ exists AND there is no inxi man
              page  in  /usr/share/man/man1,  otherwise  it  goes  to  /usr/share/man/man1). This
              requires that you be root to write to that directory.  See  --man  or  --no-man  to
              force or disable man install.

              See -J.

       -V, --version
              inxi version information. Prints information then exits.

       -v , --verbosity
              Script  verbosity  levels.  If  no  verbosity  level number is given, 0 is assumed.
              Should not be used with -b or -F.

              Supported levels: 0-8 Examples : inxi -v 4  or  inxi -v4

       -v 0   - Short output, same as: inxi

       -v 1   - Basic verbose, -S + basic CPU (cores, type,  average  clock  speed,  and  min/max
              speeds, if available) + -G + basic Disk + -I.

       -v 2   - Adds networking device (-N), Machine (-M) data, Battery (-B) (if available). Same
              as: inxi -b

       -v 3   - Adds advanced CPU (-C) and network (-n) data; triggers -x advanced data option.

       -v 4   - Adds partition size/used data (-P) for (if present): / /home /var/  /boot.  Shows
              full disk data (-D)

       -v 5   -  Adds  audio  device  (-A),  memory/RAM  (-m),  bluetooth data (-E) (if present),
              sensors (-s), RAID data (if present), partition label (-l), UUID  (-u),  full  swap
              data (-j), and short form of optical drives.

       -v 6   -  Adds  full  mounted  partition data (-p), unmounted partition data (-o), optical
              drive data (-d), USB (-J); triggers -xx extra data option.

       -v 7   - Adds network IP data (-i), forced bluetooth (-E), Logical (-L), RAID  (-R),  full
              CPU flags/features (-f),  triggers -xxx

       -v 8   -  All  system  data  available.  Adds  Repos  (-r), PCI slots (--slots), processes
              (-tcm), admin (--admin). Useful for testing output and to see what data you can get
              from your system.

       -w , --weather
              Adds weather line. To get weather for an alternate location, use -W [location]. See
              also -x, -xx, -xxx options. Please note that  your  distribution's  maintainer  may
              chose to disable this feature.

              DO  NOT  USE THIS FEATURE FOR AUTOMATED WEATHER UPDATES! Automated or excessive use
              will lead to your being blocked from any further access. This feature is not  meant
              for  widget  type weather monitoring, or Conky type use. It is meant to get weather
              when you need to see it, for example, on a remote server. If you did not  type  the
              weather option in manually, it's an automated request.

       -W, --weather-location <location_string>
              Get  weather/time  for  an  alternate location. Accepts postal/zip code[, country],
              city,state pair, or latitude,longitude. Note:  city/country/state  names  must  not
              contain spaces. Replace spaces with '+' sign. Don't place spaces around any commas.
              Postal code is not reliable except for North America and maybe the UK.  Try  postal
              codes  with  and  without  country code added. Note that City,State applies only to
              USA, otherwise it's City,Country. If country name (english) does not  work,  try  2
              character country code (e.g. Spain: es; Great Britain: gb).

              See  for current 2 letter country

              Use only ASCII letters in city/state/country names.

              Examples: -W 95623,us OR -W Boston,MA OR -W 45.5234,-122.6762 OR -W new+york,ny  OR
              -W bodo,norway.

              DO  NOT  USE THIS FEATURE FOR AUTOMATED WEATHER UPDATES! Automated or excessive use
              will lead to your being blocked from any further access. This feature is not  meant
              for  widget  type weather monitoring, or Conky type use. It is meant to get weather
              when you need to see it, for example, on a remote server. If you did not  type  the
              weather option in manually, it's an automated request.

       --weather-source, --ws <unit>
              [1-9] Switches weather data source. Possible values are 1-9.  1-4 will generally be
              active, and 5-9 may or may not be active, so  check.  1  may  not  support  city  /
              country  names  with spaces (even if you use the + sign instead of space). 2 offers
              pretty good data, but may not have all small city names for -W.

              Please note that the data sources are not static per  value,  and  can  change  any
              time,  or  be removed, so always test to verify which source is being used for each
              value if that is important to  you.  Data  sources  may  be  added  or  removed  on
              occasions,  so try each one and see which you prefer. If you get unsupported source
              message, it means that number has not been implemented.

       --weather-unit <unit>
              [m|i|mi|im] Sets weather units to metric (m), imperial (i), metric (imperial)  (mi,
              default),  imperial  (metric) (im). If metric or imperial not found,sets to default
              value, or N/A.


       The following options allow for applying various types of filtering to the output.

       --filter , --filter-override
              See -z, -Z.

       --filter-label, --filter-uuid, --filter-vulnerabilities
              See --zl, --zu, --zv.

       --host Turns on hostname in System line. Overrides inxi config file value (if set):

              SHOW_HOST='false' - Same as: SHOW_HOST='true'

              This is an absolute override, the host  will  always  show  no  matter  what  other
              switches you use.

              Turns  off  hostname in System line. This is default when using -z, for anonymizing
              inxi output for posting on forums or IRC. Overrides configuration value (if set):

              SHOW_HOST='true' - Same as: SHOW_HOST='false'

              This is an absolute override, the host will not show no matter what other  switches
              you use.

       -z, --filter
              Adds  security  filters  for  IP addresses, serial numbers, MAC, location (-w), and
              user home directory name. Removes Host:. On by default for IRC clients.

       --zl, --filter-label
              Filter partition label names  from  -j,  -o,  -p,  -P,  and  -Sa  (root=LABEL=...).
              Generally only useful in very specialized cases.

       --zu, --filter-uuid
              Filter partition UUIDs from -j, -o, -p, -P, and -Sa (root=UUID=...). Generally only
              useful in very specialized cases.

       --zv, --filter-v, --filter-vulnerabilities
              Filter Vulnerabilities report from -Ca. Generally only useful in  very  specialized

       -Z , --filter-override , --no-filter
              Absolute override for output filters. Useful for debugging networking issues in IRC
              for example.


       The following options allow for modifying the output in various ways.

       -c , --color [0-42]
              Set color scheme. If no scheme number is supplied, 0 is assumed.

       -c [94-99]
              These color selectors run a color selector option prior to inxi starting which lets
              you set the config file value for the selection.

              NOTE:  All  configuration file set color values are removed when output is piped or
              redirected. You must use the explicit runtime -c <color number> option if you  want
              color codes to be present in the piped/redirected output.

              Color  selectors  for  each type display (NOTE: IRC and global only show safe color

       -c 94  - Console, out of X.

       -c 95  - Terminal, running in X - like xTerm.

       -c 96  - GUI IRC, running in X - like XChat, Quassel, Konversation etc.

       -c 97  - Console IRC running in X - like irssi in xTerm.

       -c 98  - Console IRC not in X.

       -c 99  - Global - Overrides/removes all settings.

              Setting a specific color type removes the global color selection.

       --indent [11-xx]
              Change primary wide indent width. Generally useless. Only applied if  output  width
              is  greater  than max wrap width (see --max-wrap). Use configuration item INDENT to
              make permanent.

       --indents [0-10]
              Change primary wrap mode, second, and -y1 level indents. First  indent  level  only
              applied  if  output  width is less than max wrap width (see --max-wrap). 0 disables
              all wrapped indents and all second level indents. Use configuration item INDENTS to
              make permanent.

       --limit [-1 - x]
              Raise or lower max output limit of IP addresses for -i. -1 removes limit.

       --max-wrap, --wrap-max [integer]
              Overrides  default  or configuration set line starter wrap width value. Wrap max is
              the maximum width that inxi will wrap line  starters  (e.g.  Info:)  to  their  own
              lines, with data lines indented default 2 columns (use --indents to change).

              If  terminal/console  width  or  --width  is less than wrap width, wrapping of line
              starter occurs. If 80 or less, no wrapping will occur. Overrides  internal  default
              value (110) and user configuration value MAX_WRAP.

       --output [json|screen|xml]
              Change data output type. Requires --output-file if not screen.

       --output-file [full path to output file|print]
              The given directory path must exist. The directory path given must exist, The print
              options prints to stdout.  Required for non-screen --output formats (json|xml).

       --partition-sort [dev-base|fs|id|label|percent-used|size|uuid|used]
              Change default sort  order  of  partition  output.  Corresponds  to  PARTITION_SORT
              configuration item. These are the available sort options:

              dev-base - /dev partition identifier, like /dev/sda1.  Note that it's an alphabetic
              sort, so sda12 is before sda2.

              fs - Partition  filesystem.  Note  that  sorts  will  be  somewhat  random  if  all
              filesystems are the same.

              id - Mount point of partition (default).

              label - Label of partition. If partitions have no labels, sort will be random.

              percent-used - Percentage of partition size used.

              size - KiB size of partition.

              uuid - UUID of the partition.

              used - KiB used of partition.

       --wrap-max [integer]
              See --max-wrap.

       -y, --width [integer]
              This is an absolute width override which sets the output line width max.  Overrides
              COLS_MAX_IRC, COLS_MAX_NO_DISPLAY, COLS_MAX_CONSOLE  configuration  items,  or  the
              actual widths of the terminal.

              * -y - sets default width of 80 columns.
              * -y [80-xxx] - sets width to given number. Must be 80 or more.
              *  -y  1  -  switches to a single indented key/value pair per line, and removes all
              long line wrapping (similar to dmidecode output). Not recommended for use with -Y;
              * -y -1 - removes width limits (if assigned by configuration items).

              inxi -Fxx -y 130
              inxi -Fxxy
              inxi -bay1

       -Y, --height, --less [-3-[integer]
              Control output height. Useful  when  in  console,  and  scrollback  not  available.
              Breaks output flow based on values provided.

              * -Y 0 or -Y - Set default max height to terminal height.
              * -Y [1-xxx] - set max output block height height in lines.
              *  -Y  -1  -  Print out one primary data item block (like CPU:, System:) at a time.
              Useful for very long outputs like -Fa, -v8, etc. Not available for -h.
              * -Y -2 - Do not disable output colors when redirected or piped to another program.
              Useful  if  piping  output  to  less -R for example. This does not limit the height
              otherwise since the expectation it is being piped  to  another  program  like  less
              which will handle that.
              *  -Y  -3  - Restore default unlimited output lines if LINES_MAX configuration item

              Recommended to use the following for very clean up and down scrollable  output  out
              of  display,  while  retaining  the  color schemes, which are normally removed with
              piping or redirect:

              pinxi -v8Y -2 | less -R

              Note: since it's not possible for inxi to know how many actual terminal  lines  are
              being  used  by terminal wrapped output, with -y 1 , it may be better in general to
              use a fixed height like:

              -y 1 -Y 20 instead of: -y 1 -Y


       These options can be triggered by one or more -x.  Alternatively, the -v  options  trigger
       them in the following way: -v 3 adds -x; -v 6 adds -xx; -v 7 adds -xxx

       These extra data triggers can be useful for getting more in-depth data on various options.
       They can be added to any long form option list, e.g.: -bxx or -Sxxx

       There are 3 extra data levels:
       -x, -xx, -xxx
       --extra 1, --extra 2, --extra 3

       The following details show which lines / items display extra information  for  each  extra
       data level.

       -x -A  -  Adds  (if  available  and/or relevant) vendor: item, which shows specific vendor
              [product] information.

              - Adds version/port(s)/driver version (if available) for each device.

              - Adds PCI/USB ID of each device.

              - Adds non-running sound servers, if detected.

       -x -B  - Adds vendor/model, battery status (if battery present).

              -  Adds  attached  battery  powered  peripherals  (Device-[number]:)  if   detected
              (keyboard, mouse, etc.).

              -  Adds battery volts:, min: voltages. Note that if difference is critical, that is
              current voltage is too close to minimum voltage, shows without -x.

       -x -C  - Adds bogomips to CPU speed report (if available).

              - Adds L1: and L3: cache types if either are present/available. For BSD  or  legacy
              Linux,  uses  dmidecode  +  doas/sudo/root.  Force use of dmidecode cache values by
              adding --dmidecode. This will override /sys based cache data,  which  tends  to  be
              better, so in general don't do that.

              -  Adds  boost:  [enabled|disabled]  if detected, aka turbo. Not all CPUs have this

              - Adds CPU Flags (short list). Use -f to see full flag/feature list.

              - Adds CPU microarchitecture + revision (e.g. Sandy Bridge, K8, ARMv8,  P6,  etc.).
              Only shows data if detected. Newer microarchitectures will have to be added as they
              appear, and require the CPU family ID, model ID, and stepping.

              - Adds, if smt (Simultaneous MultiThreading) is available but disabled, after type:
              data smt: disabled. type: MT means it's enabled. See -Cxxx.

              arch: Sandy Bridge rev: 2
              arch: K8 rev.F+ rev: 2

              If unable to non-ambiguosly determine architecture, will show something like: arch:
              Amber Lake note: check rev: 9

              - Adds CPU highest speed after avg: [speed] high: [speed] if greater  than  1  core
              and cores have different speeds. Linux only.

       -x -d  -  Adds  more  items  to Features line of optical drive; dds rev version to optical

       -x -D  - Adds HDD temperature with disk data.

              Method 1: Systems running Linux kernels ~5.6 and newer should have drivetemp module
              data  available.  If  so,  drive temps will come from /sys data for each drive, and
              will not require root or hddtemp. This method is MUCH faster  than  using  hddtemp.
              Note that NVMe drives do not require drivetemp.

              If your drivetemp module is not enabled, enable it:

              modprobe drivetemp

              Once  enabled,  add drivetemp to /etc/modules or /etc/modules-load.d/***.conf so it
              starts automatically.

              If you see drive temps running as regular user and you did not configure system  to
              use  doas/sudo  hddtemp, then your system supports this feature. If no /sys data is
              found, inxi will try to use hddtemp methods instead for that drive.  Hint: if  temp
              is /sys sourced, the temp will be to 1 decimal, like 34.8, if hddtemp sourced, they
              will be integers.

              Method 2: if you have hddtemp installed, if you are root or if you  have  added  to
              /etc/sudoers (sudo v. 1.7 or newer):

              <username> ALL = NOPASSWD: /usr/sbin/hddtemp (sample)

              doas users: see man doas.conf for setup.

              You can force use of hddtemp for all drives using --hddtemp.

              -  If  free LVM volume group size detected (root required), show lvm-free: on Local
              Storage line. This is how much unused space the VGs contain,  that  is,  space  not
              assigned to LVs.

       -x -E (--bluetooth)
              -  Adds  (if  available  and/or relevant) vendor: item, which shows specific vendor
              [product] information.

              - Adds PCI/USB Bus ID of each device.

              - Adds driver version (if available) for each device.

              - Adds (if available, and hciconfig only) LMP (HCI if  no  LMP  data,  and  HCI  if
              HCI/LMP versions are different) version (if available) for each HCI ID.

       -x -G  - Adds PCI/USB ID of each device.

              -  Adds  (if  available  and/or relevant) vendor: item, which shows specific vendor
              [product] information.

              - Adds direct rendering status.

              - Adds (for single GPU, nvidia driver) screen number that GPU is running on.

       -x -i  - Adds IP  v6  additional  scope  data,  like  Global,  Site,  Temporary  for  each

              Note  that there is no way we are aware of to filter out the deprecated IP v6 scope
              site/global temporary addresses from the output of ifconfig. The ip tool shows that

              ip-v6-temporary  -  (ip tool only), scope global temporary.  Scope global temporary
              deprecated is not shown

              ip-v6-global - scope global (ifconfig will show this for all types, global,  global
              temporary, and global temporary deprecated, ip shows it only for global)

              ip-v6-link - scope link (ip/ifconfig) - default for -i.

              ip-v6-site  - scope site (ip/ifconfig). This has been deprecated in IPv6, but still
              exists. ifconfig may show multiple site  values,  as  with  global  temporary,  and
              global temporary deprecated.

              ip-v6-unknown - unknown scope

       -x -I  -  Adds  current  init  system (and init rc in some cases, like OpenRC).  With -xx,
              shows init/rc version number, if available.

              - Adds default system gcc. With -xx, also show other installed gcc versions.

              - Adds current runlevel (not available with all init systems).

              - Adds total packages discovered in system. See -xx and -a for per package  manager
              types output. Moves to Repos if -rx.

              If  your  package  manager is not supported, please file an issue and we'll add it.
              That requires the full output of the query or  method  to  discover  all  installed
              packages  on  your  system,  as  well  of  course  as the command or method used to
              discover those.

              - If in shell (i.e. not in IRC client), adds shell version number, if available.

       -x -j, -x --swap
              Add mapper:. See -x -o.

       -x -J (--usb)
              - For Devices, adds driver(s).

       -x -L, -x --logical
              - Adds dm: dm-x to VG > LV and other Device types.  This  can  help  tracking  down
              which device belongs to what.

       -x -m, --memory-modules
              -  If present, adds maximum memory module/device size in the Array line.  Only some
              systems will have this data available. Shows estimate if it can generate one.

              - Adds device type in the Device line.

       -x -N  - Adds (if available and/or relevant) vendor: item,  which  shows  specific  vendor
              [product] information.

              - Adds version/port(s)/driver version (if available) for each device;

              - Adds PCI/USB ID of each device.

       -x -o, -x -p, -x -P
              - Adds mapper: (the /dev/mapper/ partition ID) if mapped partition.

              Example: ID-4: /home ... dev: /dev/dm-6 mapped: ar0-home

       -x -r  - Adds Package info. See -Ix

       -x -R  -  md-raid:  Adds second RAID Info line with extra data: blocks, chunk size, bitmap
              (if present). Resync line, shows blocks synced/total blocks.

              - Hardware RAID: Adds driver version, Bus ID.

       -x -s  - Adds basic voltages: 12v, 5v, 3.3v, vbat (ipmi, lm-sensors if present).

       -x -S  - Adds Kernel gcc version.

              - Adds to Distro: base: if detected. System base will only be seen on a  subset  of
              distributions. The distro must be both derived from a parent distro (e.g. Mint from
              Ubuntu), and explicitly added to the supported distributions for this feature.  Due
              to  the  complexity  of  distribution  identification,  these will only be added as
              relatively solid methods are found for each distribution system base detection.

       -x -t (--processes)
              - Adds memory use output to CPU (-xt c), and CPU use to memory (-xt m).

       -x -w , -W
              - Adds humidity and barometric pressure.

              - Adds wind speed and direction.

       -xx -A - Adds vendor:product ID for each device.

              - Adds PCIe speed and lanes item (Linux only, if detected).

       -xx -B - Adds serial number.

       -xx -D - Adds disk serial number.

              - Adds disk speed (if available). This is the theoretical top speed of  the  device
              as  reported.  This  speed  may  be restricted by system board limits, eg. a SATA 3
              drive on a SATA 2 board may report SATA  2  speeds,  but  this  is  not  completely
              consistent, sometimes a SATA 3 device on a SATA 2 board reports its design speed.

              NVMe  drives: adds lanes, and (per direction) speed is calculated with lane speed *
              lanes * PCIe overhead. PCIe 1 and 2 have data rates of GT/s * .8 =  Gb/s  (10  bits
              required  to  transfer 8 bits of data).  PCIe 3 and greater transfer data at a rate
              of GT/s * 128/130 * lanes = Gb/s (130 bits required to transfer 128 bits of data).

              For a PCIe 3 NVMe drive, with speed of 8 GT/s and 4 lanes (8GT/s * 128/130  *  4  =
              31.6 Gb/s):

              speed: 31.6 Gb/s lanes: 4

              - Adds disk duid, if available. Some BSDs have it.

       -xx -E (--bluetooth)
              - Adds vendor:product ID of each device.

              - Adds (hciconfig only) LMP subversion (and/or HCI revision if applicable) for each

              - Adds PCIe speed and lanes item (Linux only,  and  if  PCIe  bluetooth,  which  is

       -xx -G Triggers much more complete Screen/Monitor output.

      requires  xdpyinfo or xrandr, and the advanced per monitor feature requires

              Wayland: requires any tool capable of showing monitor and  resolution  information.
              Sway  has  swaymsg, weston-info or wayland-info can show Wayland information on any
              Wayland compositor, and wlr-randr can show  Wayland  information  for  any  wlroots
              based compositor.

              Further  note  that all references to Displays, Screens, and Monitors are referring
              to the X or Wayland technical terms, not normal consumer usage.

     1 Display runs 1 or more Screens, and 1 Screen runs 1 or more Monitors.

              Wayland: The Display is the primary  container,  and  it  can  contain  1  or  more

              - Adds vendor:product ID of each device.

              - Adds PCIe speed and lanes item (Linux only, and if PCIe device and detected).

              -  Adds  output port IDs, active, off (connected but disabled, like a closed laptop
              lid) and empty. Example:

              ports: active: DVI-I-1,VGA-1 empty: HDMI-A-1

              - Adds Display ID. the Display running the Screen that  runs  the  Monitors;
              Wayland: the Display that runs the monitors.

              - Adds compositor, if found (always shows for Wayland).

              - Wayland: Adds to  Display d-rect: if > 1 monitors in Display. This is the size of
              the rectangle Wayland creates to situate the monitors in.

              - If available, shows alternate: Xorg drivers. This means a  driver  on  the
              default  list of drivers Xorg automatically checks for the device, but which is not
              installed. For example, if you have nouveau driver, nvidia would show as  alternate
              if  it  was  not  installed. Note that alternate: does NOT mean you should have it,
              it's just one of the drivers Xorg checks to see  if  is  present  and  loaded  when
              checking  the  device.  This  can let you know there are other driver options. Note
              that if you have explicitly set the driver in xorg.conf, Xorg will not create  this
              automatic check driver list.

              - Xorg: Adds total number of Screens listed for the current Display.

              - Xorg: Adds default Screen ID if Screen (not monitor!) total is greater than 1.

              -  Adds  Screen  line, which includes the ID (Screen: 0) then s-res (Screen
              resolution), s-dpi. Remember, this is an Xorg Screen, NOT a monitor screen, and the
              information  listed  is  about  the  Xorg  Screen! It may at times be the same as a
              single monitor system, but usually it's different  in  some  ways.  Note  that  the
              physical  monitor  dpi and the Xorg dpi are not necessarily the same thing, and can
              vary widely.

              - Adds Monitor lines. Monitors  are  a  subset  of  a  Screen  (  or  Display
              (Wayland),  each  of  which  can have one or more monitors. Normally a dual monitor
              setup is 2 monitors run by one Xorg Screen/Wayland Display.

              -  pos:  [primary,]{position  string|row-col}  (  requires  xrandr;  Wayland:
              requires  swaymsg  [sway],  wlr-randr  [wlroots  based  compositors], weston-info /
              wayland-info [all]). Uses either explicit primary value  or  +0+0  position  if  no
              primary  monitor value set.  pos: does not show for single monitor setups, or if no
              position data was found.

              Position  is  text  (left,  center,  center-l,  center-r,  right,  top,   top-left,
              top-center,  top-right,  middle,  middle-c,  middle-r,  bottom, bottom-l, bottom-c,
              bottom-r) if monitors fit within the following grids: 1x2, 1x3, 1x4, 2x1, 2x2, 2x3,
              3x1,  3x2,  3x3. If layout not supported in text, uses [row-nu]-[column-nu] instead
              to indicate the monitor's position in its grid.

              The position is based on the upper left corner of each monitor relative to the grid
              of monitors that the Xorg Screen is composed of.

              -  diag: monitor screen diagonal in mm (inches). Note that this is the real monitor
              size, not the Xorg full Screen diagonal size, which can be quite different.

              - For free drivers, adds OpenGL compatibility  version  number  if  available.  For
              nonfree  drivers, the core version and compatibility versions are usually the same.

              v: 3.3 Mesa 11.2.0 compat-v: 3.0

       -xx -I - Adds init type version number (and rc if present).

              - Adds other detected installed gcc versions (if present).

              - Adds system default runlevel, if detected. Supports Systemd/Upstart/SysVinit type

              - Shows Packages: counts by discovered package manager types. In cases where only 1
              type had results, does not show total after  Packages:.  Does  not  show  installed
              package managers wtih 0 packages. See -a for full output. Moves to Repos if -rxx.

              - Adds parent program (or pty/tty) that started shell, if not IRC client.

       -xx -j (--swap), -xx -p, -xx -P
              -  Adds  swap priority to each swap partition (for -P) used, and for all swap types
              (for -j).

       -xx -J (--usb)
              - Adds vendor:chip id.

       -xx -L, -xx --logical
              - Adds internal LVM Logical volumes, like raid image and meta data volumes.

              - Adds full list of Components, sub-components, and their physical devices.

              - For LVM RAID, adds a RAID report line (if not -R). Read up on  LVM  documentation
              to better understand their use of the term 'stripes'.

       -xx -m, --memory-modules
              - Adds memory device Manufacturer.

              - Adds memory device Part Number (part-no:). Useful for ordering new or replacement
              memory sticks etc. Part numbers are unique, particularly if you use the word memory
              in the search as well. With -xxx, also shows serial number.

              -  Adds  single/double  bank  memory,  if data is found. Note, this may not be 100%
              right all of the time since it depends on the order that data is found in dmidecode
              output for type 6 and type 17.

       -xx -M - Adds chassis information, if data is available. Also shows BIOS ROM size if using

       -xx -N - Adds vendor:product ID for each device.

              - Adds PCIe speed and lanes item (Linux only, and if PCIe device and detected).

       -xx -r - Adds Packages info. See -Ixx

       -xx -R - md-raid: Adds superblock (if present) and algorithm. If  resync,  shows  progress

              - Hardware RAID: Adds Chip vendor:product ID.

       -xx -s - Adds DIMM/SOC voltages, if present (ipmi only).

       -xx -S -  Adds  display  manager (dm) type, if present. If none, shows N/A.  Supports most
              known display managers, including gdm, gdm3, idm, kdm, lightdm,  lxdm,  mdm,  nodm,
              sddm, slim, tint, wdm, and xdm.

              -  Adds,  if  run  in  X,  window  manager  type (wm), if available. Not all window
              managers are supported. Some desktops support using more than one  window  manager,
              so  this  can  be  useful  to  see what window manager is actually running. If none
              found, shows nothing. Uses a less accurate fallback tool wmctrl if ps tests fail to
              find data.

              - Adds desktop toolkit (tk), if available (Xfce/KDE/Trinity).

       -xx --slots
              - Adds slot length.

       -xx -w , -W
              - Adds wind chill, heat index, and dew point, if available.

              -  Adds  cloud  cover,  rain,  snow,  or  precipitation (amount in previous hour to
              observation time), if available.

       -xxx -A
              - Adds, if present, serial number.

              - Adds, if present, PCI/USB class ID.

       -xxx -B
              - Adds battery chemistry (e.g. Li-ion), cycles (NOTE: there appears to be a problem
              with  the  Linux  kernel  obtaining the cycle count, so this almost always shows 0.
              There's nothing that can be  done  about  this  glitch,  the  data  is  simply  not
              available  as  of  2018-04-03),  location  (only  available  from dmidecode derived

              - Adds attached device rechargeable: [yes|no] information.

       -xxx -C
              - Adds CPU voltage and external  clock  speed  (this  is  the  motherboard  speed).
              Requires doas/sudo/root and dmidecode.

              -  Adds,  if  smt (Simultaneous MultiThreading) data is available, after type: data
              smt: [status].
              smt: [status]
              MT in type: will show if  smt  is  enabled  in  general.  3  values  are  possible:
              [enabled|disabled|<unsupported>]. <unsupported> means the CPU does not support SMT.

       -xxx -D
              - Adds disk firmware revision number (if available).

              - Adds disk partition scheme (in most cases), e.g. scheme: GPT.  Currently not able
              to detect all schemes, but handles the most common, e.g.  GPT or MBR.

              - Adds disk type (HDD/SSD), rotation speed (in some but not all cases), e.g.  type:
              HDD  rpm:  7200,  or  type: SSD if positive SSD identification was made. If no HDD,
              rotation, or positive SSD ID found, shows type: N/A. Not  all  HDD  spinning  disks
              report their speed, so even if they are spinning, no rpm data will show.

       -xxx -E (--bluetooth)
              - Adds, if present, PCI/USB class ID.

              - Adds (hciconfig only) HCI version, revision.

       -xxx -G
              - Adds, if present, Device PCI/USB class ID.

              - Adds to Device serial: number (if found).

              -  Xorg: Adds to Screen: s-size: and s-diag:. (Screen size data requires xdpyinfo).
              This is the Screen dimensions, NOT the Monitor size!

              - Adds to Monitors (if detected) frequency (hz:).

              - Adds to Monitors (if detected) size (size: 277x156mm (10.9x6.1")). Note that this
              is  the real physical monitor size, not the Xorg Screen/Wayland Display size, which
              can be quite different (1 Xorg Screen / Wayland Display can  for  instance  contain
              two or more monitors).

              -  Adds  to  Monitors  modes:  min:  max: (if detected). These are the smallest and
              largest monitor modes found, using an inexact method, so might not always be right.

              - Adds to Monitors serial: number (if detected).

              - Wayland: Adds to Monitors scale: (if detected).

       -xxx -I
              - For Uptime: adds wakeups: to show how many times the machine has been woken  from
              suspend  state  during  current  uptime  period (if available, Linux only). 0 value
              means the machine has not been suspended.

              - For Shell: adds (su|sudo|login) to shell name if present.

              - For Shell: adds default: shell if different from running shell, and default shell
              v:, if available.

              -  For  running-in: adds (SSH) to parent, if present. SSH detection uses the whoami

       -xxx -J (--usb)
              - Adds, if present, serial number for non hub devices.

              - Adds interfaces: for non hub devices.

              - Adds, if available, USB speed in Mbits/s or Gbits/s.

              - Adds, if present, USB class ID.

              - Adds, if non 0, max power in mA.

       -xxx -m, --memory-modules
              - Adds memory bus width: primary bus width, and if present, total width. e.g.   bus
              width:  64  bit  (total:  72  bits).  Note  that  total  / data widths are mixed up
              sometimes in dmidecode output, so inxi will take the larger value as the  total  if
              present. If no total width data is found, then inxi will not show that item.

              - Adds device Type Detail, e.g. detail: DDR3 (Synchronous).

              -  Adds,  if  present, memory module voltage. Only some systems will have this data

              - Adds device serial number.

       -xxx -N
              - Adds, if present, serial number.

              - Adds, if present, PCI/USB class ID.

       -xxx -R
              - md-raid: Adds system mdraid support  types  (kernel  support,  read  ahead,  RAID

              - zfs-raid: Adds portion allocated (used) by RAID array/device.

              -  Hardware RAID: Adds rev, ports, and (if available and/or relevant) vendor: item,
              which shows specific vendor [product] information.

       -xxx -S
              - Adds, if in X, or with  --display,  bar/dock/panel/tray  items  (info).  If  none
              found,   shows   nothing.   Supports   desktop  items  like  gnome-panel,  lxpanel,
              xfce4-panel, lxqt-panel, tint2, cairo-dock, trayer, and many others.

              - Adds (if present), window manager (wm) version number.

              - Adds (if present), display manager (dm) version number.

              - Adds (if available, and in display), virtual terminal (vt) number.  These are the
              same  as  ctrl+alt+F[x]  numbers  usually.  Some  systems have this, some don't, it

       -xxx -w , -W
              - Adds location (city state country), observation altitude (if available),  weather
              observation time (if available), sunset/sunrise (if available).


       These options are triggered with --admin or -a. Admin options are advanced output options,
       and are more technical, and mostly of interest to system administrators or  other  machine

       The --admin option sets -xxx, and only has to be used once.  It will trigger the following

       -a -A  - Adds, if present, possible alternate: kernel  modules  capable  of  driving  each
              Device-x (not including the current driver:). If no non-driver modules found, shows
              nothing. NOTE: just because it lists a module does NOT mean it is available in  the
              system, it's just something the kernel knows could possibly be used instead.

              -  Adds  PCIe  generation, and, if different than running PCIe generation, speed or
              lanes, link-max: gen: speed: lanes: (only items different from primary shown).

       -a -C  - Adds CPU family, model-id,  and  stepping  (replaces  rev  of  -Cx).   Format  is
              hexadecimal (decimal) if greater than 9, otherwise hexadecimal.

              - Adds CPU microcode. Format is hexadecimal.

              -  Adds socket type (for motherboard CPU socket, if available). If results doubtful
              will list two socket types and note: check. Requires doas/sudo/root and  dmidecode.
              The  item  in parentheses may simply be a different syntax for the same socket, but
              in general, check this before trusting it.

              Sample: socket: 775 (478) note: check
              Sample: socket: AM4

              - Adds DMI CPU base and boost/turbo speeds. Requires doas/sudo/root and  dmidecode.
              In  some  cases,  like  with  overclocking or 'turbo' or 'boost' modes, voltage and
              external clock speeds may be increased, or short term  limits  raised  on  max  CPU
              speeds. These are often not reflected in /sys based CPU min/max: speed results, but
              often are using this source.

              CPU not overclocked, with boost, like Ryzen:
              Speed (MHz):
                avg: 2861
                high: 3250
                min/max: 1550/3400
                boost: enabled
                base/boost: 3400/3900
              Overclocked 2900 MHz CPU, with no boost available:
              Speed (MHz):
                avg: 2345
                high: 2900
                min/max: 800/2900
                base/boost: 3350/3000
              Overclocked 3000 MHz CPU, with boosted max speed:
              Speed (MHz):
                avg: 3260
                high: 4190
                min/max: 1200/3001
                base/boost: 3000/4000

              Note that these numbers can be confusing, but basically, the  base  number  is  the
              actual normal top speed the CPU runs at without boost mode, and the boost number is
              the max speed the CPU reports itself able to run at.  The actual max speed  may  be
              higher  than either value, or lower. The boost number appears to be hard-coded into
              the CPU DMI data, and does not seem to reflect actual max speeds that  overclocking
              or other combinations of speed boosters can enable, as you can see from the example
              where the CPU is running at a speed faster than the min/max or base/boost values.

              Note that the normal min/max: speeds do NOT show actual overclocked OR  boost/turbo
              mode  speeds,  and  appear  to  be  hard-coded values, not dynamic real values. The
              base/boost: values are sometimes real, and sometimes not.  base appears in  general
              to be real.

              -  Adds  frequency  scaling:  governor:..  driver:..  if found/available. Also adds
              scaling min/max speeds if different from standard CPU min/max spees (not common).

              - Adds description of cache topology per cpu. Linux only.

              - Creates new Topology: line after the Info: line. Moves cache data  to  this  line
              from Info: line.

              Topology  line  contains, if available and/or relevant: physical CPU count (cpus:);
              per physical cpu core count (cores:); threads per core, if >  1  (tpc:);  how  many
              threads:  (if more threads than cores); dies: (rarely detected, but if so, if > 1);
              smt status (if no smt status found, shows N/A).

              If complex CPU type, like Alder lake, cores; will have a more granular breakdown of
              how  many  mt (multi-threaded) and how many st (single-threaded) cores there in the
              physical cpu ( mt-cores:, st-cores:);  For complex CPU types like ARM  SoC  devices
              with 2 CPU types, with different core counts and/or min/max:) frequencies, variant:
              per type found, with relevant differences shown, like cores:, min/max:, etc.

              - Adds CPU Vulnerabilities (bugs) as known by your current kernel. Lists  by  Type:
              ...  (status|mitigation):  .... for systems that support this feature (Linux kernel
              4.14 or newer, or patched older kernels).

       -a -d,-a -D
              - Adds logical and physical block size in bytes.

              Using smartctl (requires doas/sudo/root privileges).

              - Adds device model family, like Caviar Black, if available.

              - Adds SATA type (eg 1.0, 2.6, 3.0) if a SATA device.

              - Adds device kernel major:minor number (Linux only).

              - Adds SMART report line: status, enabled/disabled, health, powered on, cycles, and
              some error cases if out of range values. Note that for Pre-fail items, it will show
              the VALUE and THRESHOLD numbers. It will also fall back for unknown attributes that
              are  or  have  been failing and print out the Attribute name, value, threshold, and
              failing message. This way even for unhandled Attribute  names,  you  should  get  a
              solid report for full failure cases. Other cases may show if inxi believes that the
              item may be approaching failure. This is a guess so make sure to  check  the  drive
              and smartctl full output to verify before taking any further action.

              -  Adds,  for  USB or other external drives, actual model name/serial if available,
              and different from enclosure model/serial, and corrects block sizes  if  necessary.
              Adds in drive temperature for some drives as well, and other useful data.

       -a -E (--bluetooth)
              -  Adds (hciconfig only) extra line to Report:, Info:.  Includes, if available, ACL
              MTU, SCO MTU, Link policy, Link mode, and Service Classes.

              - Adds PCIe generation, and, if different than running PCIe  generation,  speed  or
              lanes,  link-max:  gen:  speed:  lanes:  (only  items different from primary shown.
              Bluetooth PCIe rare).

       -a -G  - Adds, if present, possible alternate: kernel  modules  capable  of  driving  each
              Device-x (not including the current loaded:). If no non-driver modules found, shows
              nothing. NOTE: just because it lists a module does NOT mean it is available in  the
              system, it's just something the kernel knows could possibly be used instead.

              -  Adds  PCIe  generation, and, if different than running PCIe generation, speed or
              lanes, link-max: gen: speed: lanes: (only items different from primary shown).

              - Adds to Monitors built:, gamma:, ratio: (if found).

              - Adds  service  control  tool,  tested  for  in  the  following  order:  systemctl
              rc-service  rcctl service sv /etc/rc.d /etc/init.d. Can be useful to know which you
              need when using an unfamiliar machine.

       -a -j, -a -P [swap], -a -P [swap]
              - Adds swappiness and vfs cache pressure, and a message to indicate if the value is
              the  default  value  or not (Linux only, and only if available). If not the default
              value, shows default value as well, e.g.

              For -P per swap physical partition:

              swappiness: 60 (default) cache-pressure: 90 (default 100)

              For -j row 1 output:

              Kernel: swappiness: 60 (default) cache-pressure: 90 (default 100)

              - Adds device kernel major:minor number (Linux only).

       -a -L  - Expands Component report, shows size / maj-min of  components  and  devices,  and
              mapped name for logical components. Puts each component/device on its own line.

              - Adds maj-min to LV and other devices.

       -a -n, -a -N, -a -i
              -  Adds,  if  present,  possible  alternate: kernel modules capable of driving each
              Device-x (not including the current driver:). If no non-driver modules found, shows
              nothing.  NOTE: just because it lists a module does NOT mean it is available in the
              system, it's just something the kernel knows could possibly be used instead.

              - Adds PCIe generation, and, if different than running PCIe  generation,  speed  or
              lanes, link-max: gen: speed: lanes: (only items different from primary shown).

       -a -o  - Adds device kernel major:minor number (Linux only).

       -a -p,-a -P
              - Adds raw partition size, including file system overhead, partition table, e.g.

              raw-size: 60.00 GiB.

              - Adds percent of raw size available to size: item, e.g.

              size: 58.81 GiB (98.01%).

              Note that used: 16.44 GiB (34.3%) percent refers to the available size, not the raw

       --alt 40
              Bypass Perl as a downloader option. Priority is:  Perl  (HTTP::Tiny),  Curl,  Wget,
              Fetch, (OpenBSD only) ftp.

       --alt 41
              Bypass  Curl  as  a  downloader option. Priority is: Perl (HTTP::Tiny), Curl, Wget,
              Fetch, (OpenBSD only) ftp.

       --alt 42
              Bypass Fetch as a downloader option. Priority is: Perl  (HTTP::Tiny),  Curl,  Wget,
              Fetch, (OpenBSD only) ftp.

       --alt 43
              Bypass  Wget  as  a  downloader option. Priority is: Perl (HTTP::Tiny), Curl, Wget,
              Fetch, OpenBSD only: ftp

       --alt 44
              Bypass Curl, Fetch, and Wget as  downloader  options.  This  basically  forces  the
              downloader  selection  to  use  Perl 5.x HTTP::Tiny, which is generally slower than
              Curl or Wget but it may help bypass issues with downloading.

       --bt-tool [bt-adapter|hciconfig|rfkill]
              Force the use of the given tool for bluetooth report (-E). rfkill does not  support
              mac address data.

       --dig  Temporary  override  of  NO_DIG  configuration  item.  Only  use  to test w/wo dig.
              Restores default behavior for WAN IP, which is use dig if present.

       --display [:<integer>]
              Will try to get display data out of  X  (does  not  usually  work  as  root  user).
              Default  gets display info from display :0. If you use the format --display :1 then
              it would get it from display 1 instead, or any display you specify.

              Note that in some cases, --display will cause inxi to hang endlessly  when  running
              the  option  in  console  with  Intel  graphics. The situation regarding other free
              drivers such as nouveau/ATI is currently unknown. It may be that this is a bug with
              the Intel graphics driver - more information is required.

              You  can test this easily by running the following command out of X/display server:
              glxinfo -display :0

              If it hangs, --display will not work.

              Shortcut. See --force dmidecode.

       --downloader [curl|fetch|perl|wget]
              Force inxi to use Curl, Fetch, Perl, or Wget for downloads.

       --force [colors|dmidecode|hddtemp|lsusb|pkg|usb-sys|wayland|vmstat|wmctrl]
              Various force options to allow users to override defaults. Values  be  given  as  a
              comma separated list:

              inxi -MJ --force dmidecode,lsusb

              - colors - Same as -Y -2 . Do not remove colors from piped or redirected output.

              -  dmidecode  - Force use of dmidecode. This will override /sys data in some lines,
              e.g. -M or -B.

              - hddtemp - Force use of hddtemp instead of /sys temp data for disks.

              - lsusb - Forces the USB data generator to use  lsusb  as  data  source  (default).
              Overrides USB_SYS in user configuration file(s).

              -  pkg  -  Force  override  of disabled package counts. Known package managers with
              non-resolvable issues:

              rpm: Due to up to 30 seconds delays executing
              rpm -qa --nodigest --nosignature
              on older hardware (and over 1 second  on  new  hardware  with  some  rpm  versions)
              package  counts  are  disabled  by default because of the unacceptable slowdowns to
              execute a simple package list command.

              - usb-sys - Forces the USB data generator to use /sys as  data  source  instead  of
              lsusb (Linux only).

              - vmstat - Forces use of vmstat for memory data.

              - wayland - Forces use of Wayland, disables x tools glxinfo, xrandr, xdpyinfo.

              -  wmctrl  - Force System item wm to use wmctrl as data source, override default ps

              Shortcut. See --force hddtemp.

              Temporary override of NO_HTML_WAN configuration item. Only use to  test  w/wo  HTML
              downloaders  for  WAN  IP.  Restores default behavior for WAN IP, which is use HTML
              downloader if present and if dig failed.

       --man  Updates / installs man page with -U if pinxi or using -U 3 dev branch. (Only active
              if -U is is not disabled by maintainers).

              Overrides default use of dig to get WAN IP address. Allows use of normal downloader
              tool to get IP addresses. Only use if dig is failing, since dig is much faster  and
              more reliable in general than other methods.

              Skips  the  use  of doas to run certain internal features (like hddtemp, file) with
              doas. Not related to running inxi itself with doas/sudo or super user. Some systems
              will  register errors which will then trigger admin emails in such cases, so if you
              want to disable regular user use of doas (which  requires  configuration  to  setup
              anyway  for these options) just use this option, or NO_DOAS configuration item. See
              --no-sudo if you need to disable both types.

              Overrides use of HTML downloaders to get WAN IP address. Use either only dig, or do
              not get wan IP. Only use if dig is failing, and the HTML downloaders are taking too
              long, or are hanging or failing.

              Make permanent with NO_HTML_WAN='true'

              Disables man page install with -U for master and active development branches. (Only
              active if -U is is not disabled by maintainers).

              Overrides user set SENSOR_FORCE configuration value. Restores default behavior.

              Skip  SSL  certificate  checks  for all downloader actions (-U, -w, -W, -i). Use if
              your system does not have current SSL certificate lists, or if  you  have  problems
              making  a  connection  for  any  reason. Works with Wget, Curl, Perl HTTP::Tiny and

              Skips the use of sudo to run certain internal features (like  hddtemp,  file)  with
              sudo.  Not related to running inxi itself with sudo or superuser. Some systems will
              register errors which will then trigger admin emails in such cases, so if you  want
              to  disable  regular user use of sudo (which requires configuration to setup anyway
              for these options) just use this option, or NO_SUDO configuration item.

       --pkg  Shortcut. See --force pkg.

       --pm-type [package manager name]
              For distro package maintainers only, and only for non apt,  rpm,  or  pacman  based
              systems.  To  be  used  to  test  replacement package lists for recommends for that
              package manager.

              Overrides configuration values SENSORS_USE or SENSORS_EXCLUDE on a one time basis.

              Similar to --sensors-use except removes  listed  sensors  from  sensor  data.  Make
              permanent  with  SENSORS_EXCLUDE  configuration item. Note that gpu, network, disk,
              and other specific device monitor chips are excluded by default.

              Example: inxi -sxx --sensors-exclude k10temp-pci-00c3

              Use only the (comma separated) sensor arrays for -s  output.  Make  permanent  with
              SENSORS_USE configuration item. Sensor array ID value must be the exact value shown
              in lm-sensors sensors output (Linux/lm-sensors only). If you only want  to  exclude
              one (or more) sensors from the output, use --sensors-exclude.

              Can  be useful if the default sensor data used by inxi is not from the right sensor
              array. Note that all other sensor data will be removed, which may lead to undesired
              consequences.  Please be aware that this can lead to many undesirable side-effects,
              since default behavior is to use all the sensors arrays and select which values  to
              use  from  them  following a set sequence of rules. So if you force one to be used,
              you may lose data that was used from another one.

              Most likely best use is when one (or two) of the sensor arrays has all  the  sensor
              data  you  want,  and you just want to make sure inxi doesn't use data from another
              array that has inaccurate or misleading data.

              Note that gpu, network, disk, and other specific device monitor chips are  excluded
              by  default,  and should not be added since they do not provide cpu, board, system,
              etc, sensor data.

              Example: inxi -sxx --sensors-use nct6791-isa-0290,k10temp-pci-00c3

       --sleep [0-x.x]
              Usually in decimals. Change CPU sleep time for -C (current:  .35).  Sleep  is  used
              to let the system catch up and show a more accurate CPU use.  Example:

              inxi -Cxxx --sleep 0.15

              Overrides default internal value and user configuration value:


       --tty  Forces  internal IRC flag to off. Used in unhandled cases where the program running
              inxi may not be seen as a shell/pty/tty, but it is not an IRC  client.   Put  --tty
              first  in  option  list  to  avoid unexpected errors. If you want a specific output
              width, use the --width option. If you want normal color codes in  the  output,  use
              the -c [color ID] flag.

              The  sign  you  need to use this is extra numbers before the key/value pairs of the
              output of your program. These are IRC, not TTY, color codes. Please post  a  github
              issue  if  you find you need to use --tty (including the full -Ixxx line) so we can
              figure out how to add your program to the list of whitelisted programs.

              You can see what inxi believed started it in the  -Ixxx  line,  Shell:  or  Client:
              item.  Please let us know what that result was so we can add it to the parent start
              program whitelist.

              In some cases, you may want to also use --no-filter/-Z option if you  want  to  see
              filtered  values.  Filtering is turned on by default if inxi believes it is running
              in an IRC client.

              Shortcut. See --force usb-sys

              Shortcut. See --force lsusb

       --wan-ip-url [URL]
              Force -i to use supplied URL as WAN IP source. Overrides dig or default  IP  source
              urls. URL must start with http[s] or ftp.

              The  IP  address from the URL must be the last item on the last (non-empty) line of
              the page content source code.

              Same as configuration value (example):


       --wayland, --wl
              Shortcut. See --force wayland.

       --wm   Shortcut. See --force wmctl.


       --dbg 1
              - Debug downloader failures. Turns off silent/quiet mode for curl, wget, and fetch.
              Shows  more  downloader  action  information.  Shows some more information for Perl

       --dbg [2-xx]
              - See github  inxi-perl/docs/inxi-values.txt  for  specific  specialized  debugging

       --debug [1-3]
              - On screen debugger output.

       --debug 10
              -       Basic       logging.       Check       $XDG_DATA_HOME/inxi/inxi.log      or
              $HOME/.local/share/inxi/inxi.log or $HOME/.inxi/inxi.log.

       --debug 11
              - Full file/system info logging.

       --debug 20
              Creates a tar.gz file of system data and collects the inxi output in a file.

              * tree traversal data file(s) read from /proc and /sys, and other system data.

              * xorg conf and log data, xrandr, xprop, xdpyinfo, glxinfo etc.

              * data from dev, disks, partitions, etc.

       --debug 21
              Automatically uploads debugger data tar.gz file to, then  removes  the
              debug data directory, but leaves the debug tar.gz file.  See --ftp for uploading to
              alternate locations.

       --debug 22
              Automatically uploads debugger data tar.gz file to, then  removes  the
              debug  data  directory  and  the tar.gz file.  See --ftp for uploading to alternate

       --ftp []
              For alternate ftp upload locations: Example:

              inxi --ftp --debug 21


       Only use the following in conjunction with --debug 2[012], and only use if you experienced
       a failure or hang, or were instructed to do so.

              Force  debugger  to  parse  /proc directory data when run as root. Normally this is
              disabled due to unpredictable data in /proc tree.

              Use this to locate file that /proc debugger hangs on.

              Skip exit on error when running debugger.

              Skip /proc debugging in case of a hang.

              Skip /sys debugging in case of a hang.

              Force PowerPC debugger parsing of /sys as doas/sudo/root.

              Use this to locate file that /sys debugger hangs on.


       BitchX, Gaim/Pidgin, ircII, Irssi, Konversation, Kopete, KSirc, KVIrc, Weechat, and Xchat.
       Plus any others that are capable of displaying either built-in or external script output.


       To  trigger  inxi  output  in  your  IRC client, pick the appropriate method from the list

       Hexchat, XChat, Irssi
              (and many other IRC clients) /exec -o inxi [options] If you don't include  the  -o,
              only you will see the output on your local IRC client.

              /cmd inxi [options]

              To run inxi in Konversation as a native script if your distribution or inxi package
              hasn't already done this for you, create this symbolic link:

              KDE 4: ln -s /usr/local/bin/inxi /usr/share/kde4/apps/konversation/scripts/inxi

              KDE 5: ln -s /usr/local/bin/inxi /usr/share/konversation/scripts/inxi

              If inxi is somewhere else,  change  the  path  /usr/local/bin  to  wherever  it  is

              If  you  are using KDE/QT 5, then you may also need to add the following to get the
              Konversation /inxi command to work:

              ln -s /usr/share/konversation /usr/share/apps/

              Then you can start inxi directly, like this:

              /inxi [options]

              NEW: /exec -o inxi [options]

              OLD: /shell -o inxi [options]

              Newer (2014 and later) WeeChats work pretty much the same now as other console  IRC
              clients, with /exec -o inxi [options]. Newer WeeChats have dropped the -curses part
              of their program name, i.e.: weechat instead of weechat-curses.


       inxi will read its configuration/initialization files in the following order:

       /etc/inxi.conf contains the default configurations. These can be overridden by creating  a
       /etc/inxi.d/inxi.conf  file  (global  override,  which  will  prevent distro packages from
       changing or overwriting your edits. This method is recommended if you are using  a  distro
       packaged  inxi  and  want  to override some configuration items from the package's default
       /etc/inxi.conf file but don't want to lose your changes on a package update.

       You can old override, per user, with a  user  configuration  file  found  in  one  of  the
       following locations (inxi will store its config file using the following precedence:

       if  $XDG_CONFIG_HOME is not empty, it will go there, else if $HOME/.conf/inxi.conf exists,
       it will go there, and as a last default, the legacy location is used), i.e.:

       $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/inxi.conf > $HOME/.conf/inxi.conf > $HOME/.inxi/inxi.conf


       See the documentation page for more complete information on how to set these up, and for a
       complete list of options:

       Basic Options
              Here's a brief overview of the basic options you are likely to want to use:

              COLS_MAX_CONSOLE  The  max  display  column  width on terminal. If terminal/console
              width or --width is less than wrap width, wrapping of line starter occurs

              COLS_MAX_IRC The max display column width on IRC clients.

              COLS_MAX_NO_DISPLAY The max display column width in out of X / Wayland / desktop  /
              window manager.

              CPU_SLEEP  Decimal  value  0  or more. Default is usually around 0.35 seconds. Time
              that inxi will 'sleep' before getting CPU speed data, so that  it  reflects  actual
              system state.

              DOWNLOADER  Sets  default  inxi  downloader:  curl,  fetch,  ftp,  perl, wget.  See
              --recommends output for more information on downloaders and Perl downloaders.

              FILTER_STRING Default <filter>. Any string you prefer to see instead  for  filtered

              INDENT Change primary indent width of wide mode output. See --indent.

              INDENTS  Change  primary  indents  of  narrow wrapped mode output, and second level
              indents. See --indents.

              LIMIT Overrides default of 10 IP addresses per IF. This is only of interest to  sys
              admins running servers with many IP addresses.

              LINES_MAX  Values:  [-2-xxx].  See  -Y  for  explanation  and values.  Use -Y -3 to
              restore default unlimited output lines. Avoid using  this  in  general  unless  the
              machine is a headless system and you want the output to be always controlled.

              MAX_WRAP  (or  WRAP_MAX)  The maximum width where the line starter wraps to its own
              line. If terminal/console width or --width is less than  wrap  width,  wrapping  of
              line  starter  occurs.  Overrides default. See --max-wrap. If 80 or less, wrap will
              never happen.

              NO_DIG Set to 1 or true to disable WAN IP use of dig and  force  use  of  alternate

              NO_DOAS Set to 1 or true to disable internal use of doas.

              NO_HTML_WAN  Set  to  1 or true to disable WAN IP use of HTML Downloaders and force
              use of dig only, or nothing if dig disabled as well. Same  as  --no-html-wan.  Only
              use if dig is failing, and HTML downloaders are hanging.

              NO_SUDO Set to 1 or true to disable internal use of sudo.

              PARTITION_SORT  Overrides  default  partition output sort. See --partition-sort for

              PS_COUNT The default number of items showing per -t type, m or c. Default is 5.

              SENSORS_CPU_NO In cases of ambiguous temp1/temp2 (inxi can't figure  out  which  is
              the  CPU),  forces  sensors  to use either value 1 or 2 as CPU temperature. See the
              above configuration page on for full info.

              SENSORS_EXCLUDE Exclude supplied sensor array[s] from sensor output.  Override with
              --sensors-default. See --sensors-exclude.

              SENSORS_USE Use only supplied sensor array[s]. Override with --sensors-default. See

              SEP2_CONSOLE Replaces default key / value separator of ':'.

              USB_SYS Forces all USB data to use /sys instead of lsusb.

              WAN_IP_URL Forces -i to use supplied URL, and to not use dig (dig is generally much
              faster). URL must begin with http or ftp. Note that if you use this, the downloader
              set tests will run each time you start inxi whether a downloader feature  is  going
              to be used or not.

              The  IP  address from the URL must be the last item on the last (non-empty) line of
              the URL's page content source code.

              Same as --wan-ip-url [URL]

              WEATHER_SOURCE Values:  [0-9].  Same  as  --weather-source.   Values  4-9  are  not
              currently supported, but this can change at any time.

              WEATHER_UNIT Values: [m|i|mi|im]. Same as --weather-unit.

       Color Options
              It's  best  to  use  the -c [94-99] color selector tool to set the following values
              because it will correctly update the configuration file and remove any  invalid  or
              conflicting  items,  but if you prefer to create your own configuration files, here
              are the options. All take the integer value from the options available in -c 94-99.

              NOTE: All default and configuration file set color values are removed  when  output
              is  piped  or redirected. You must use the explicit -c <color number> option if you
              want colors to be present in  the  piped/redirected  output  (creating  a  PDF  for

              CONSOLE_COLOR_SCHEME The color scheme for console output (not in X/Wayland).

              GLOBAL_COLOR_SCHEME Overrides all other color schemes.

              IRC_COLOR_SCHEME Desktop X/Wayland IRC CLI color scheme.

              IRC_CONS_COLOR_SCHEME Out of X/Wayland, IRC CLI color scheme.

              IRC_X_TERM_COLOR_SCHEME In X/Wayland IRC client terminal color scheme.

              VIRT_TERM_COLOR_SCHEME Color scheme for virtual terminal output (in X/Wayland).


       Please report bugs using the following resources.

       You  may  be  asked to run the inxi debugger tool (see --debug 21/22), which will upload a
       data dump of system files for use in debugging inxi. These data dumps are  very  important
       since they provide us with all the real system data inxi uses to parse out its report.

       inxi is a fork of locsmif's very clever infobash script.

       The  nice  people  at channels #linux-smokers-club and #smxi, who all really
       have to be considered to  be  co-developers  because  of  their  non-stop  enthusiasm  and
       willingness to provide real-time testing and debugging of inxi development over the years.  Slackware forum members, for major help with development and debugging
       new or refactored features, particularly the redone CPU logic of 2021-12.

       Siduction forum members, who have helped get some features working by  providing  a  large
       number  of  datasets  that  have revealed possible variations, particularly for the RAM -m

       AntiX users and admins, who have helped greatly with testing and  debugging,  particularly
       for the 3.0.0 release.

       ArcherSeven  (Max),  Brett  Bohnenkamper (aka KittyKatt), and Iotaka, who always manage to
       find the weirdest or most extreme hardware and  setups  that  help  make  inxi  much  more

       For  the  vastly  underrated  skill  of  output  error/glitch  catching, Pete Haddow.  His
       patience and focus in going through inxi repeatedly to find errors and inconsistencies  is
       much appreciated.

       For  a  huge  boost to BSD support, Stan Vandiver, who did a lot of testing and setup many
       remote access systems for testing and development.

       All the inxi  package  maintainers,  distro  support  people,  forum  moderators,  and  in
       particular,  sys  admins  with their particular issues, which almost always help make inxi
       better, and any others who contribute ideas, suggestions, and patches.

       Without a wide range of diverse Linux kernel-based Free Desktop systems  to  test  on,  we
       could never have gotten inxi to be as reliable and solid as it's turning out to be.

       And  of  course,  a big thanks to locsmif, who figured out a lot of the core ideas, logic,
       and tricks originally used in inxi Gawk/Bash.
