I found this tool on some forum. Does it work like i think it works? you can checks specs of your host server? Some guy used it and found out they dont use servers like they claimed ;)


if this is so it must be very cool tool to check your host before purchasing. Uptime,procesors etc.

No first hand experience JonB, but from reading their web page, it appears to be usable on Linux systems only (or primarily) right now.
FreeBSD support is now stable. Look for NetBSD, OpenBSD and OSX support in 2

If you wanted to use it to check out a host's configuration, I think you'd need to be a customer FIRST, then upload and run the script. Also, the web page says it's written for system administrators. As a hosted customer, it's likely that you wouldn't have adequate permissions to access some of the info the script provides.
