lshw is a small tool to extract detailed information on the hardware configuration of the
machine. It can report exact memory configuration, firmware version, mainboard
configuration, CPU version and speed, cache configuration, bus speed, etc. on DMI-capable
x86 or IA-64 systems and on some PowerPC machines (PowerMac G4 is known to work).
It currently supports DMI (x86 and IA-64 only), OpenFirmware device tree (PowerPC only),
PCI/AGP, CPUID (x86), IDE/ATA/ATAPI, PCMCIA (only tested on x86), SCSI and USB.
Displays the version of lshw and exits.
-help Displays the available command line options and quits.
-X Launch the X11 GUI (if available).
-html Outputs the device tree as an HTML page.
-xml Outputs the device tree as an XML tree.
-short Outputs the device tree showing hardware paths, very much like the output of HP-
Outputs the device list showing bus information, detailing SCSI, USB, IDE and PCI
Dump collected information into a file (SQLite database).
Only show the given class of hardware. class can be found using lshw -short or lshw
Alias for -class class.
Enables or disables a test. test can be dmi (for DMI/SMBIOS extensions), device-
tree (for OpenFirmware device tree), spd (for memory Serial Presence Detect),
memory (for memory-size guessing heuristics), cpuinfo (for kernel-reported CPU
detection), cpuid (for CPU detection), pci (for PCI/AGP access), isapnp (for ISA
PnP extensions), pcmcia (for PCMCIA/PCCARD), ide (for IDE/ATAPI), usb (for USB
devices),scsi (for SCSI) or network (for network interfaces detection).
-quiet Don't display status.
Remove potentially sensitive information from output (IP addresses, serial numbers,
Also display numeric IDs (for PCI and USB devices).
