33. Appendix M: Disk System Documenter

This shell script was very kindly provided by Steffen Hulegaard. Run it as root (superuser) and it will generate a summary of your disk setup. Run it after you have implemented your design and compare it with what you designed to check for mistakes. Should your system develop defects this document will also be a useful starting point for recovery.

# makediskdoc               Collects storage/disk info via df, mount,
#                           /etc/fstab and fdisk.  Creates a single
#                           reference file -- /root/sysop/doc/README.diskdoc
#                           Especially good for documenting storage

# 11/11/1999  SC Hulegaard  Created just before RedHat 5.2 to
#                           RedHat 6.1 upgrade
# 12/31/1999  SC Hulegaard  Added sfdisk -glx usage just prior to
#                           collapse of my Quantum Grand Prix (4.3 Gb)
#
# SEE ALSO  Other /root/bin/make*doc commands to produce other /root/sysop/doc/README.*
#           files.  For example, /root/bin/makenetdoc.
