Is there a command or tool that can be used to determine whether Ubuntu is running as a guest within a virtualization program such as VirtualBox or Qemu or whether it is running on the bare metal?
is a shell script which can be used to detect if the program is running in a virtual machine.
The program prints out a list of "facts" about the virtual machine, derived from heuristics. One fact is printed per line.
If nothing is printed and the script exits with code 0 (no error), then it can mean either that the program is running on bare-metal or the program is running inside a type of virtual machine which we don't know about or cannot detect.
Sorry but this is your GUY.... ;)
You could run
