How to show detailed system information via Terminal on CentOS

Sometimes, we need a complete, detailed information about our system. If you are managing many systems, you may don’t want to remember all the hostname, operating system version, architecture and many more. If this is the case, we can quickly gather detailed system information via Terminal. With a single command, we can get various information of the system.

See my example below



hostnamectl command

Output text:

[root@mysqlbackup ~]# hostnamectl
