NAME
       HardInfo - System profiler and benchmark for Linux systems.

USAGE
       hardinfo [OPTION...]

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

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

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

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

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

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

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