Check your Raspberry Pi model

:heavy_exclamation_mark: This post is older than a year. Consider some information might not be accurate anymore. :heavy_exclamation_mark:

If you have a Raspberry Pi cluster and a bunch of them, you may have to add or replace some of them. But there is an easy way to check with the shell which model you have. If you query the CPU information you will receive currently 4 CPUs and at the bottom the hardware and revision number.

Query the alpha node in my Pi cluster with Ansible

tan@omega:~$ ansible alpha -u root -m shell -a 'cat /proc/cpuinfo | tail -n 14'
alpha | SUCCESS | rc=0 >>
