GNU/Linux Getting information on a running Linux kernel All information


Using the -a/--all flag will print all the available information about the kernel.

$uname -a
Linux hostname 3.13.0-88-generic #135-Ubuntu SMP Wed Jun 8 21:10:42 UTC 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

In this example, we see the kernel name, the hostname, the kernel release number, the kernel version, the machine hardware name, the processor type, the hardware platform , and the operating system name.

Any of those fields can be queried individually using other flags.
