NAME Probe::MachineInfo - The great new Probe::MachineInfo! SYNOPSIS Probe::MachineInfo aims to be a set of collector/probe classes which allow the extraction of information about the configuration of a machine. For example the number of CPUs it has and how much memory it has. This release is really just a taster release of what's to come. The architecture may change quite a lot. At the moment there is a bit of a Unix bias because that's the type of operating system that I do almost all of my real work on. However I also hope to add support for Windows hosts at some earlyish stage. Quick summary of what the module does. Perhaps a little code snippet. use Probe::MachineInfo; my $foo = Probe::MachineInfo->new(); ... SUPPORTED PLATFORMS I'll support any platform that I have experience of, or which someone will tell me is compatible with the existing code (e.g. another unix variant) or which someone will give me a patch for and help me test. * Linux * Solaris * Microsoft Windows INSTALLATION This module uses Module::Build for its installation. To install this module type the following: perl Build.PL ./Build ./Build test ./Build install If you do not have Module::Build type: perl Makefile.PL to fetch it. Or use CPAN or CPANPLUS and fetch it "manually". DEPENDENCIES See the Build.PL for a list of dependencies TODO General * Windows support Metric Probe Additions * NIS related information * Memory * Packages/Rpms installed * Disk & Partition Setup * Filesystem setup ([v]ftsab) * Network Link Speed * Keepalive on Solaris * Ipaddress on Windows * LVM / RAID / Metadevice BUGS Please report any bugs or feature requests to "email@example.com", or through the web interface at <http://rt.cpan.org>. I will be notified, and then you'll automatically be notified of progress on your bug as I make changes.
