Should be something like kernel_args rather than /proc specific.

#4 Updated by James Turnbull about 3 years ago

What do you mean?

#5 Updated by Paul Nasrat about 3 years ago

I assume you want the kernel boot arguments from /proc/cmdline, other OS have similar so the fact should be called something like kernel_arguments or boot_arguments.

Looks like you’d use kenv on freebsd and prtconf on Solaris

Useful blog fromn 2 minutes googling http://troysunix.blogspot.com/2010/11/host-info-boot-parameters.html

#6 Updated by James Turnbull about 3 years ago

Ah okay – yeah this was just a place-holder. I wanted to remember to create it – probably when we’ve got proper namespacing because it’s kind of useless fact before then.

#7 Updated by Nigel Kersten about 3 years ago

Yeah. We’ll abstract it away. You can get similar info on OS X too.
