The support tool `sysinfo` is an information gathering tool.
The sysinfo command creates a report containing system configuration and statistical information, including:
- Installed packages and patches
- Hardware information
- Networking configuration and statistics
- Performance and tuning data
- Kernel and driver details
- And other misc info based on what is installed
The sysinfo shell script generates the report by executing a series of unix commands and capturing their output into a single file.
