Pinned topic Disk Storage capacities

‏2012-04-30T05:38:23Z |
Hi forum users,

I have been tasked to find out what SAN disks are in use and what the total capacities are for each of them. I understand that this depends on the vendor as the Linux has commands for this and its provided by the device drivers. Assuming ths is EMC where wuld I find this. Secondly if there are internal SCSI DASDs what commnds would be usable for displaying the disk devices and their capacities ?

many thanks.

regards,
Tom

    parted -l
    

    will give you info about the partitions (including sizes) of installed disks.

    Thanks Ian, most appreciated. Do you know one command for displaying all the hardware data for cpu/memory and adapters like sysinfo or prtconf in AIX ?

    Thanks once again.
    regards,
    Tom

      Check out the man pages for dmidecode, biosdecode and vpddecode and lspci for starters. Most need root access.
