cpuid dumps detailed information about the CPU(s) gathered from the CPUID instruction, and also determines the exact model of CPU(s) from that information.
Stresslinux is a minimal linux distribution running from a bootable cdrom, usb, vmware or via PXE. Stresslinux makes use of some utitlities available on the net like: stress, cpuburn, hddtemp, lm_sensors ... Stresslinux is dedicated to users who want to test their system(s) entirely on high load and monitoring the health.
The Linux Wacom project is comprised of hardware drivers, libraries and documentation for Wacom tablets. It can configure devices, and interfaces with X11 under Linux, or graphics applications; usually provides out-of-the-box support on most distributions. Supported devices include the Wacom series Intuos, Cintiq, TabletPC, Graphire, Intuos Pro, Volito, PenPartner, PL & DTF , Bamboo, Bamboo Pen & Touch, and Graphire Bluetooth.
The Linux-Hardware-Guide provides a knowledge base for Linux compatibility and Linux configuration of hardware. The Linux Hardware Guide Tools are a set of programs which automate the upload of hardware data to the database. Furthermore, they automatically find the necessary hardware configuration descriptions relevant for the hardware of the used Linux system.
hdparm - get/set ATA/SATA drive parameters under Linux
lshw (HardWare LiSter) is a small tool for Linux 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.
flashrom is a utility for identifying, reading, writing, verifying and erasing flash chips. It is designed to flash BIOS/EFI/coreboot/firmware/optionROM images on mainboards, network/graphics/storage controller cards, and various other programmer devices.
checkraid is a script that uses OEM tools to check the status of RAID arrays. It can be used standalone, with snmpd or nagios nrpe. The script is nagios/icinga compatible. It currently works with Adaptec (arcconf), 3ware (tw_cli), zfs (zpool), and md (mdadm).
HWA is a tool for programming microcontrollers in C language. It provides the programmer a small set of object-oriented generic instructions to act on the hardware so that traditional bitwise and register-oriented instructions can be replaced by instructions that describe the wanted result, making the code more readable and easier to port to new target devices. HWA is not a library. Its implementation relies on C macro-definitions and inlined functions that, thanks to the compiler's optimizer
Provides a web view for system information and status. It parses /proc system resources, summarizes and reformats them for display. It reveals CPI and process information, memory use, system bus devices, disks and filesystems, network settings, and more.
librtas provides an interface for Run-Time Abstraction Services (RTAS) calls on the 64-bit PowerPC architecture for low-level hardware configuration. It allows to examine hardware states, influencing its state (LEDs), retrieving firmware logs, or loading new firmware. librtasevent allows to parse arbitrary RTAS event responses.
