SYSINFO(1)							    SYSINFO(1)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     sysinfo - print system identification

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     sysinfo [-s][-v][-vv]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     sysinfo with no options prints the	unique identifier of the system.  This
     identifier	is guaranteed to be unique within the Silicon Graphics product
     family.  With the -s option a shorter (32 bit) identifier is printed.
     This identifier is	not guaranteed to be unique but	in practice is.	 This
     number is the same	that is	available from within a	program	via the	sysid
     function. On multiple module systems this will return a 32	bit version of
     the lowest	numbered module's identifier. Because this interface does not
     take into account multiple	module systems its use is discouraged.	With
     the -v option, sysinfo will print the unique identifier followed by the
     module number for each module in the system.  The -vv option will print
     the unique	identifier, the	system serial number and the module number for
     each module on all	platforms except IP20. On IP20 it will only print the
     unique identifier and the module number.

BUGS    [Toc]    [Back]

     The system	identifier on different	Silicon	Graphics products is
     associated	with different physical	pieces of hardware.  Therefore,	the
     identifier	may unexpectedly change	when the hardware is modified.
