After a quick review of the wiki page, it was stated that dmidecode gave
too much informations. Only five fields will be displayed in the
hardware tab, "Manufactory", "Version", "Family", "UUID" and "serial
number". For "Family", it is mean the CPU core's family. And it
confuses me a bit with the "CPU name" and "CPU type" fields in general
tab. I think we should chose the best one to characterizethe CPU type.
Today in the Api we display general information about the host that
vdsm export by getCapabilities Api.
We decided to add bios information as part of the information that is
displayed in UI under host's general sub-tab.
To summaries the feature - We'll modify General tab to Software
Information and add another tab for Hardware Information which will
include all the bios data that we'll decide to gather from the host
Following this feature page:
http://www.ovirt.org/Features/Design/HostBiosInfo for more details.
All the parameters that can be displayed are mentioned in the wiki.
I would greatly appreciate your comments and questions.
