NAME
       osinfo - gather information regarding the running operating system

SYNOPSIS
       osinfo [ -s ] [ -h hostname ] [ -p portnumber ]
	      [ -u username ] [ -w password ] [ -t timeout ]
	      [ -c ] [ --help ] [ --version ]

DESCRIPTION
       The  osinfo command displays information regarding the operating system, gathered via WBEM
       using the PG_OperatingSystem class supported by the OperatingSystem Provider (bundled with
       OpenPegasus).  osinfo requires the CIM Server to be installed and running.

       By  default, the information is formatted for display, converting CIMDateTime strings into
       a more user-readable format (see Examples), and converting the total number of seconds  of
       uptime into the appropriate number of days, hours, minutes, and seconds.

       If a property value is unavailable, it will be shown as "Unknown"

   Options
       osinfo recognizes the following options:

	      -c	     Use  the  CIM  formats for DateTime and SystemUpTime values (not the
			     formatting done by default).  As specified by the DMTF, the CIMDate-
			     Time  format  is  yyyymmddhhmmss.mmmmmmsutc, where yyyy is a 4-digit
			     year, mm is the month, dd is the day, hh is the hour  on  a  24-hour
			     clock,  mm  is the minute, ss is the second, mmmmmm is the number of
			     microseconds, s is a "+" or "-" indicating the sign of the UTC (Uni-
			     versal  Time  Code) correction field (since the DateTime is returned
			     in the local time zone of the system), and utc is	the  offset  from
			     UTC in minutes.

	      -h hostname    Connect  to the CIM Server on the specified host.	If this option is
			     not specified, osinfo connects to the localhost.

	      --help	     Display command usage information.

	      -p portnumber  Connect to the CIM Server on the specified  port  number.	 If  this
			     option is not specified, osinfo connects to the default port for the
			     wbem-http service, or if the -s option is specified, to the  default
			     port for the wbem-https service.

	      -s	     Enable  the  use  of  the	SSL  protocol  between osinfo and the CIM
			     server.  The -s option should be specified if the CIM Server on  the
			     specified	hostname/portnumber  expects  clients  to  connect  using
			     HTTPS.

	      -t timeout     Wait the specified number of  milliseconds  on  sending  a  request,
			     before  timing  out  if  no response has been received.  The timeout
			     value must be an integer value greater than 0.

	      -u username    Connect as the specified R username .  If username is not specified,
			     the  current logged in user is used for authentication.  This option
			     is ignored if neither hostname nor portnumber is specified.

	      --version      Display CIM Server version.

	      -w password    Authenticate the connection using the  specified  password  .   This
			     option  is  ignored if neither hostname nor portnumber is specified.
			     WARNING: A password should not be specified on the command line on a
			     multi-user  system,  since command-line options are typically world-
			     readable for a short window of time.  If the  remote  host  requests
			     authentication  and this option is not specified, osinfo will prompt
			     for the password.

EXIT STATUS
       When an error occurs, an error message is written to stderr and an  appropriate	value  is
       returned.  The following values are returned:

	      0      Success
	      1      Error

USAGE NOTE
       The osinfo command requires that the CIM Server is running.

DIAGNOSTICS
       osinfo error: Cannot connect

	      The  CIMOM  is  not running.  Start the CIMOM with the cimserver command and re-run
	      osinfo .

EXAMPLES
       Run the default osinfo command.

       OperatingSystem Information
	 Host: myserver.hp.com
	 Name: HP-UX
	 Version: B.11.00
	 UserLicense: Unlimited user license
	 OSCapability: 32 bit
	 LastBootTime: Sep 24, 2001  9:16:18 (-0700)
	 LocalDateTime: May 23, 2002  10:55:54 (-0700)
	 SystemUpTime: 20828377 seconds = 241 days, 1 hr, 39 mins, 37 secs

       The system myserver.hp.com is running version B.11.00 of HP-UX,	has  an  unlimited
       user  license, and is 32-bit capable.  The Operating System was last booted on Sept
       24, 2001 and the local date and time are given.	All time values  are  offset  from
       GMT by -7 hours.

       Run osinfo , with the values displayed in their CIM format

       osinfo -c

       OperatingSystem Information
	 Host: rushmore.cup.hp.com
	 Name: HP-UX
	 Version: B.11.00
	 UserLicense: Unlimited user license
	 OSCapability: 32 bit
	 LastBootTime: 20010924091618.000000-420
	 LocalDateTime: 20020523105801.000000-420
	 SystemUpTime: 20828504

       The  same rushmore.cup.hp.com system is displayed, but in this output the LastBoot-
       Time and LocalDateTime values are in the CIM format.  The SystemUpTime value is	in
       total  seconds  (as  specified  by  CIM).  Other fields do not change, as their CIM
       specification is the strings themselves.
