Disk Information In AIX


Hello everyone,
I am new to AIX. I am looking to fetch some information related Hard Disk.

I am not able to get CHS information and the bytes per sector information on the AIX (4,5,6).

Any help will be appreciated.


Thanks

Hello and Welcome to LinuxQuestions,

You can use
Code:
lscfg
to show hardware connected to your system and then
Code:
lscfg -vl <diskname>
to show more information about your harddisk.

Other type of information regarding partitions and such on your disk can be found out using:
Code:
lspv <diskname>
If your looking for input/output stats then use:
Code:
iostat -d
iostat -D
Hope that helps.

Kind regards,

Eric

Hello.

Why do you need to know that?

AIX uses - what for me is - the finest LVM there is.

Beyond specifying what part of the disk to use when creating a logical volume, there's not much you can do by knowing what part of the disk anything is on, and such information about C, H or S characteristics are is meaningless.
