The following commands are useful to gather Linux server  information.  The Linux system information is useful for such scenarios as : a) The Server Engineer requests a spec for a new Linux server build from the DBA . b)   Collating inventory information for  disaster recovery planning

cat /proc/cpuinfo   (cpuinfo linux)
cat /proc/version  (Linux version information)
cat /proc/swaps   (Linux swap information)
cat /etc/fstab       (file system configuration info)
cat /proc/meminfo   (Linux memory information)
df  -h   (disk info about all mounted file systems, human-readable)
