imvirt - detects several virtualizations
This manual page documents briefly the imvirt script. imvirt tries to
detect if it runs on a physical machine or on a virtualized one. If it
detects that it is a virtualized one it also tries to find out which
virtualization technology is used.
imvirt does not need any arguments. But there is at the moment a
restriction if you do not call this script with the administrative root
user, because imvirt also uses dmidecode to determine the used
virtualization technology. dmidecode itself needs root privileges to
accesss /dev/mem. So on you have to wrap imvirt with sudo if you want
to detect every virtualization technology.
