Description: Hardware Tools: irqtune , scanport, scsiinfo, memtest86
A collection of tools for hardware troubleshooting / optimization:
- irqtune: Adjusts priority of interrupts (Improves serial
- scanport: Scans for hardware not already handled by linux drivers
- scsiinfo: Display SCSI drive low level information and modifies
- memtest86: Real Mode Memory test
- scsidev: Make permanent SCSI LUN -> devicename connections
Be aware that these tools require the knowledge of what is going on
be used properly.
