Flight Gather

Flight Gather collects system information into a processable YAML format.

Data collected by Flight Gather:

  • BIOS Version
  • Serial Number
  • Total RAM
  • CPU info (sockets, cores, IDs, models)
  • Network info (interfaces, MAC addresses, speed)
  • Disk info (name, size)
  • GPU info (name, slot)
  • Platform

Further to the above, the user can provide groups (in a similar vein to genders) to add further categorisation to the data. This is useful when collating the data from many systems.
