usb-devices


SYNOPSIS
       usb-devices


DESCRIPTION
       usb-devices  is  a  (bash)  shell  script  that  can be used to display
       details of USB buses in the system and the devices connected to them.

       The output of the script is similar to the usb/devices  file  available
       either  under  /proc/bus  (if  usbfs  is  mounted),  or under /sys/ker-
       nel/debug (if debugfs is  mounted  there).  The  script  is  primairily
       intended to be used if the file is not available.

       In  contrast  to  the  usb/devices  file, this script only lists active
       interfaces (those marked with a "*" in the usb/devices file) and  their
       endpoints.

       Be  advised  that  there  can  be differences in the way information is
       sorted, as well as in the format of the output.


RETURN VALUE
       If sysfs is not mounted, a non-zero exit code is returned.


FILES
       /sys/bus/usb/devices/usb*
              The part of the sysfs tree the script walks through to  assemble
              the printed information.

       /proc/bus/usb/devices
              Location  where  the  usb/devices file can normally be found for
              Linux kernels before 2.6.31, if usbfs is mounted.

       /sys/kernel/debug/usb/devices
              Location where the usb/devices file can normally  be  found  for
              Linux kernel 2.6.31 and later, if debugfs is mounted.
