SYSINFO.CONF(5)		  FreeBSD File Formats Manual	       SYSINFO.CONF(5)

NAME
     /usr/local/etc/sysinfo.conf -- sysinfo(8) configuration file

DESCRIPTION
     The /usr/local/etc/sysinfo.conf file is used to overwrite the default be-
     havior of the sysinfo(8) utility.

     When sysinfo(8) is	invoked, it loads the configuration from the
     /usr/local/etc/sysinfo.conf file and overwrites the default settings of
     the utility.

     The following configuration options can be	set in
     /usr/local/etc/sysinfo.conf:

	   PATH	      Sets the environment variable PATH to make sure that the
		      required systems utilities will be found.	 If any	of the
		      systems utilities	are located in a non-standard loca-
		      tion, this variable should be set	to include it.

	   APPDIR     Defines a	directory relative to all the other applica-
		      tion files.

	   MODPATH    Sets the path to the individual modules.

	   ALLMODS    List of all available modules.  To add a new module to
		      the sysinfo(8), it is required to	add it to this vari-
		      able in order to make it functional.  Note that the mod-
		      ule itself also has to be	executable.

	   COLORS     Set this to "YES"	if the output generated	by sysinfo(8)
		      should be	colorful.  Otherwise set it to "NO".

	   INFO_MSGS  If the generated output may contain an additional	infor-
		      mation, such as configuration hints and references to
		      useful manual pages, set this to "YES", otherwise	set it
		      to "NO".

	   DEBUG      The sysinfo(8) utility will generate debugging messages
		      if this variable is set to "YES".	 These messages	may be
		      useful while working on new modules or enhancing exist-
		      ing ones.	 If set	to "NO", no debugging information will
		      be included in the generated output.

	   VERBOSE    This variable sets the default value of the verbose
		      level.  The sysinfo(8) utility currently supports	two
		      levels of	verbose	level, i.e 0 and 1.

EXAMPLES
     The following are the default values of /usr/local/etc/sysinfo.conf file.

	   PATH=/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:${PATH}
	   APPDIR=/usr/local/share/sysinfo
	   MODPATH=${APPDIR}/modules
	   ALLMODS="system bios	cpu mem	os storage network user	packages services misc"
	   COLORS="YES"
	   INFO_MSGS="YES"
	   DEBUG="NO"
	   VERBOSE=0
