Detailed Hardware Info

Details on a machine's hardware can be printed by using lshw. So information on the bus is collected by:

lshw -businfo

In order to trigger a detailed memory, the following two lines come in handy:

dmidecode -t memory


lshw -C memory

Make snmpd’s log more silently

A default snmpd log a bit too much for my taste. Therefore, /etc/default/snmpd can be adjusted. Change the following line from:

SNMPDOPTS='-Lsd -Lf /dev/null -u snmp -I -smux -p /var/run/'


SNMPDOPTS='-LS 0-4 d -Lf /dev/null -u snmp -I -smux -p /var/run/'
