  • Any proper way to add information to the client details ?

    Hello,

    I would like to add information (eg: firmwares versions) to the client details which is included in every test.
    Is there any way to do that properly ? Or does I have to patch the source code manually ?

    To avoid any confusion, here is a screenshot of what I call "client details" :


    Thanks.

    Like what firmware versions are you interested in? The BIOS version and CPU microcode version should already be shown.

      I was thinking mostly about NIC and RAID controller firmware versions.

        It would be possible to add them as footnotes on that table but off the top of my head I am not sure of any standardized way of reliably querying NIC/RAID firmware versions on Linux?

          For NICs you can find driver, driver version and firmware version using ethtool -i; example :
          # ethtool -i eno1 | head -3
          driver: tg3
          version: 3.137
          firmware-version: FFV20.2.17 bc 5720-v1.39

          About RAID firmware "lshw -C disk" can help.
          It find the version in /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:01.0/0000:03:00.0/host0/target0:2:0/0:2:0:0/rev (in my case); but I don't have any other raid controller model to verify.
          # lshw -C disk | head -8
          *-disk
          description: SCSI Disk
          product: PERC H730 Mini
          vendor: DELL
          physical id: 2.0.0
          bus info: [email protected]:2.0.0
          logical name: /dev/sda
          version: 4.26

          Another thing I would like to add to the information table is very specific: our internal release version number (kind of like Debian release but internal to the company)/
          Having the possibility to expand the table with custom command might come handy.
