/hosts/self/info

Information about the host.

/hosts/self/info/name

Short name of the system, in all lowercase. For example “deckard”.

/hosts/self/info/config

GNU style configuration name of the system. For example “i686-pc-linux-gnu”. This can also be obtained by running the script /org/gnu/cmd/config.guess, but having it readily available here is faster.

/hosts/self/info/timezone

Timezone of the system. For example “Europe/Helsinki”.

This directory should only contain plain text files. Preferably one line per file.  No .conf files or other formats. No documents. No log files.

Also, anything that is associated to a service goes in /hosts/self/svc/service/, not here! Which means that almost nothing goes in here. But what little does go in here is very important.

Use this directory wisely and it will serve you well for a long time to come.

Information about the kernel is to be found in /hosts/self/kern/.

Information about the IP configuration is to be found in /hosts/self/svc/inet/.

Information about users, groups and other authentication matters is to be found in /hosts/self/svc/auth/.

Information about which software packages are installed in the system is to be found in /org/*/pkg/.
