Or something similar, particularly the memory testing functions.

... Maybe someone needs to petition the cpuz folks for a Linux port........

No need. It's already there, with lots lots more :-)

Instead of a "CPUZ", you have a directory (folders) tree that lists just about everything there is about the kernel and running processes. As root, you can change the values also (but obviously take care to make sure you know what you're doing!).

So:

From the command line, you can list the cpu details with:

(example for my old clunker)

# more /proc/cpuinfo processor : 0 vendor_id : AuthenticAMD cpu family : 6 model : 6 model name : AMD Athlon(tm) XP 1800+ stepping : 2 cpu MHz : 1532.685 cache size : 256 KB fdiv_bug : no hlt_bug : no f00f_bug : no coma_bug : no fpu : yes fpu_exception : yes cpuid level : 1 wp : yes flags : fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 apic sep mtrr pge mca cmov pat pse36 mmx fxsr sse syscall mp mmxext 3dnowext 3dnow bogomips : 3067.39


Similarly so for memory, use:
# more /proc/meminfo

(If those two commands don't work, then you need to be part of the "adm" group or you may have a locked-down system and you need to be root.)


And then there's various GUIs that show that information in various pretty ways. Some examples are: KSysGuard, Ksensors, Gkrellm, and whatever else you might find under system monitoring.

And then there's Memtest86+ for offline testing and then also an equivalent that can run whilst you're using your system.


And I'm sure there's various utilities to give a pretty-print of your system specs.

Happy crunchin',
Martin

Thanks for reminding me why I use windows.

[Silly return jibe]
Sheesh... Is that because Windows is designed for those whom can't read nor comprehend?
[/Silly return jibe]

For those whom can only see 'graphical', please see this pretty picture (from long ago) and note the panels on the left.

Or is all that choice too much for you to handle? I'll make the note that it's merely a question of what you want to see. The raw data is immediately there. You can dress it up with whatever GUI you wish, easily.

Now can we get off the "Windoz Rules" vs "Everything Else" silliness?

Thank you,
Martin

There is also "cpuinfo" that gives a 'pretty print' of the CPU details if you want something a little nicer than the kernel /proc/cpuinfo format.

I would guess that's the nearest to CPUZ for CPU info.

On SuSE Linux 10.3 I use "hwinfo --cpu" as root.

Hardware Lister (lshw)
lshw (Hardware Lister) is a small tool to provide 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 EFI (IA-64) systems and on some PowerPC machines (PowerMac G4 is known to work).

I compiled it in my SuSE Linux 10.3 and it works in both CLI and GUI versions.

Close. It's basically because I am too lazy.
