How do I detect make and model of monitor attached to system?

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • We have many Red Hat enterprise Linux systems in our setup.
  • We need to know make and model of the monitor attached to these RHEL systems for inventory purpose.
  • Many of these systems are booted in runlevel 3 without X running.
  • Is there any way to probe monitor information from command line mode?
