If you work with Linux servers chances are that you use SSH to connect to the remote server.
In such cases where you don8217t have direct access to the system you might wonder whether your server is running in a virtual machine or on a physical system. .
Let me show you how to do that.
There are several commands you can use for this purpose.
The simplest way to check that is by using the dmidecode command.
The dmidecode command is used for decoding a computer8217s DMI information in human-readable format. .
DMI short for Desktop Management Interface is a standard that almost all system manufacturer adhere to. The DMI framework is used for managing and tracking components in a desktop laptop or server computer.
Thanks to DMI you can get information about the system8217s hardware system manufacturer and the serial number of the device.
