[HowTo] get and post your System Info
« on: 29. September 2013, 12:03:57 »
The following commands will get you some basic details about your setup.These commands can be typed in a terminal.
When debugging hardware problems, information about one's system is needed.
Here is how some needed system info can be gathered.

Whenever posting about hardware issues, try to list this information where relevant, by Posting it inside the code blocks (button symbol: # ).


1.Brief System Info
Code: [Select]
inxi -Fxz
2.Kernels currently installed
Code: [Select]
mhwd-kernel -li
3.GPU (Graphics) in use
Code: [Select]
mhwd -li
4.USB Devices info

may also be useful.

13.PCI Devices (like Graphics/DRAM controller & network interfaces) in detail
Code: [Select]
lspci -v
14.Sound Devices
Code: [Select]
aplay -l
15.Real Time System Info (like CPU processes, RAM usage)
Code: [Select]
top(Or
Code: [Select]
htopif you have it installed and want a ncurses interface)

16.Kernel and System Info
Code: [Select]
uname -a
Note-
You can suggest more commands you think can be added here.
Thanks to the people who gave suggestions.

P.S.
Here is a link where you can Post your hardware you are running Manjaro on.

To check your memory usage-
Code: [Select]
free -m(This command is somewhat subjective and should be used for reference only!)

To check which processes are running and CPU load,
Code: [Select]
top
A graphical way to check this information is through the Task Manager/ System Monitor.
They are found in Applications -> System (varies according to the desktop environment)

A graphical view to view the system  load is htop
Install it with
Code: [Select]
sudo pacman -S htopIt would also be probably found in Applications -> System -> Htop

To see who's logged on, what they're running + current time, system uptime and CPU load average:
Code: [Select]
w
A quick temperature check:
Code: [Select]
sensors(needs lm_sensors package)
While I may not always have the correct solution, my input could lead you in the right direction...
If you don't know what a command does, then type 'man <command>' or '<command> --help' to find out.

free sucks as far as I'm concerned, if you want to check accurate memory usage by application/process try ps_mem.py


This will download the script, copy it to sbin and rename it to mem (less to type out) and change rights:
Code: [Select]
wget https://raw.github.com/pixelb/ps_mem/master/ps_mem.py
sudo cp ps_mem.py /usr/local/sbin/mem && sudo chmod 755 /usr/local/sbin/mem

[Post corrected at forum member's request - carl]

To execute the command simply do:
Code: [Select]
sudo mem

Somehow the && between the commands went missing in mips post.

Code: [Select]
sudo cp ps_mem.py /usr/local/sbin/mem && sudo chmod 755 /usr/local/sbin/mem

How about video acceleration???

I want to active videoacceleration but I did't finde eny INFO about.  :(

I use this comande like in UBUNTU : glxgears    The result was :

Quote
[booboo@booboo ~]$ glxgears
302 frames in 5.0 seconds = 60.398 FPS
300 frames in 5.0 seconds = 59.954 FPS
300 frames in 5.0 seconds = 59.954 FPS
300 frames in 5.0 seconds = 59.954 FPS
300 frames in 5.0 seconds = 59.955 FPS
300 frames in 5.0 seconds = 59.955 FPS
300 frames in 5.0 seconds = 59.954 FPS

In UBUNTU I was like this :

Quote
19948 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3987.691 FPS
19040 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3804.944 FPS
19660 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3928.221 FPS
18775 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3751.409 FPS
19472 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3893.304 FPS
18800 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3759.677 FPS

I think the acceleration is not actived in Manjaro. I have the last updates but I think I need to active video acceleration. But what command do I need to do that?
Live will hit you hard, just fight back as much as you can.

@flippy, open a new thread for any problems, this thread only illustrates the commands to perform.

Quote
$glxgears
Running synchronized to the vertical refresh.  The framerate should be
approximately the same as the monitor refresh rate.

302 frames in 5.0 seconds = 60.390 FPS
299 frames in 5.0 seconds = 59.762 FPS

Perhaps you have a hybrid graphics card, in which you need to specify which card you have to use for applications. For nvidia its optirun glxgears.

Read the topics in the forums with similar issues, and if you have problems, open a new thread.

Edit-
I forgot to mention, glxgears is not a benchmark!

Thanks, copy & paste error on my part, I had it on two separate lines but it somehow ended up on one line.


I'll report my post and ask the mods to edit it ;)

Thanks LiberteCzech ;)

You can add to it also if you think something is missing. :)

I've always liked this one; outputs a lot of information.

Code: [Select]
sudo lshw
And this will output it in a nifty html format which is easily read in the web browser;

Code: [Select]
sudo lshw -html > your-file-name.html
This tool <lshw> was not installed by default in my Manjaro Netbook Xfce installation. I had to get it from the community repo.

15.Real Time System Info (like CPU processes, RAM usage)
Code: [Select]
top

I never got comfortable with top. My brain simply can't parse it.  ???  :-\
I found htop much more comfortable to use. I'm guessing the ncurses interface has something to do with that...  :P
