I am looking for something similar to what is posted in this question: Linux + get the all information about the hardware from machine by tool or script
Basically - I want to be able to plug in a USB device to a computer, boot to it, and have it pull various information about the computer:
- Video Card
- Hard Drive
- Disk Usage
and probably other things that aren't coming to mind.
I am aware there are solutions like Spice Works, but I am looking for a hardware solution. I basically have a pile of computers that need to be upgraded to a certain standard (ram, cpu, video card, etc.). I think it would be easiest to plug in a USB device, boot to it, have the script run, the script result gets saved to the USB device, and then the machine powers off. Then I put the device in the next machine and keep going.
Does anything like this exist? Am I stuck creating something myself using a Linux bootable environment?
Thanks in advance!
