HardInfo is a hardware analysis, system benchmark and report generator.
- Comprehensive reports on hardware
- Generate HTML reports on your system’s hardware
- Benchmark and compare your system.
$ sudo apt-get install hardinfo
Once installed, HardInfo can be launched from ‘System Tools > System Profiler and Benchmark’. Alternatively the application can be launched from the command line using the following:
$ hardinfo <span id="line-29" class="anchor"></span><span id="line-30" class="anchor"></span>
Until a network update is completed only the results of local tests can be viewed under the ‘Benchmarks’ section. Completing a network update from ‘Information > Network Updater..’ will download additional benchmarks for comparison and against the local machine. Benchmark results will then appear ranked from best performing to lowest performing against other systems.
HardInfo comes with the following benchmark tests:
- CPU Blowfish
- CPU N-Queens
- FPU FFT
- FPU Raytracing
Highlighting any test and then selecting ‘refresh’ from the top toolbar will rerun any previously completed benchmarks
Simply select ‘Generate Report’ from the top toolbar, a dialogue box will appear allowing you to export all desired computer, device, network or benchmark results to a HTML file. Upon completion an option to open the file immediately for viewing is provided
