Display images

Synopsis

  imgstat [<name>...]

Examples

Display all images

  imgstat

Display the image ''pxelinux.0''

  imgstat pxelinux.0

Description

Display information about the specified images. If no images are explicitly specified, iPXE will display information about all images. For example:

  iPXE> imgstat
  boot.php : 111 bytes [script] [SELECTED]

In this example you can see that there is a single image, named boot.php, which is an iPXE script. The image has already been selected for booting (using a command such as kernel or imgselect).

It is possible to have multiple images present at the same time. For example:

  iPXE> imgstat
  vmlinuz : 2904736 bytes [bzImage] [SELECTED] "console=ttyS0,115200n8 console=tty0"
  initrd.img : 421168 bytes
  e1000.ko : 64852 bytes "/lib/modules/e1000.ko"

In this example you can see that there are three images. The image named vmlinuz is a Linux kernel bzImage and has been selected for booting. The command line ”console=ttyS0,115200n8 console=tty0” will be passed to the Linux kernel when it boots.

The other two images will be available to the booted Linux kernel image: the image named initrd.img is a Linux initial RAM filesystem image, and the image named e1000.ko is a Linux kernel module that will be provided as the file /lib/modules/e1000.ko within the initial RAM filesystem.
