This page displays information about the I/O ports.
I/O Ports are memory addresses used by the processor for direct communication with a device that has sent an interrupt signal to the processor.
The exchange of commands or data between the processor and the device takes place through the I/O port address of the device, which is a hexadecimal number. No two devices can share the same I/O port. Many devices use multiple I/O port addresses, which are expressed as a range of hexadecimal numbers.
The exact information displayed is system-dependent. On some systems, I/O port information can not yet be displayed.
On Linux®, this information is read from
/proc/ioports which is only available if
/proc pseudo-filesystem is
compiled into the kernel. A list of all currently-registered I/O port
regions that are in use is shown.
The first column is the I/O port (or the range of I/O ports), the second column identifies the device that uses these I/O ports.
