June 11, 2007


View-OS in user space - Core and base modules


vuname - print view information


vuname [OPTION]...


Print certain view information. With no OPTION, same as -s.


-a, --all print all information, in the following order, except omit -p and -i if unknown.
-s, --kernel-name print the kernel name
-n, --nodename print the network node hostname
-r, --kernel-release print the kernel release
-v, --kernel-version print the kernel version
-m, --machine print the machine hardware name
-p, --processor print the processor type or "unknown"
-i, --hardware-platform print the hardware platform or "unknown"
-o, --operating-system print the operating system
-U, --serverid print the view-os server id
-V, --viewid print the view id
-N, --viewname print the view name
-x, --nouname do not use uname (without this flag the command behaves like uname
when it runs on a non View-OS enabled environment).

--help display a help message and exit
--version output version information and exit
