DEVINFO(8S)                                                        DEVINFO(8S)



NAME
       devinfo - print out system device information

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/etc/devinfo [ -pv ] [ -f promdevice ]

AVAILABILITY
       This  program  is available for desktop SPARCsystems and for the SPARC-
       system 600MP series only.

DESCRIPTION
       devinfo displays the devices that the system knows about.   The  output
       will  state the name of the device, its unit number, and whether a sys-
       tem device driver has claimed it.  Since the internal system  represen-
       tation  of  this  information  is an n-ary tree, indentation is used to
       denote a parent-child relationship, and devices reported  at  the  same
       indentation level are considered sibling devices.

OPTIONS
       -f     With  the  -p option, use the argument promdevice as the monitor
              PROM device, instead of the default /dev/openprom.

       -p     Report the monitor's view of the attached  devices,  instead  of
              the kernel's view.

       -v     Report  hardware  specifications  such as register addresses and
              interrupt priorities for each device.
