Hardware details' commands

RAM:
cat /proc/meminfo

Processor:
cat /proc/cpuinfo

Disk Size:
Partition:
df -h

I also find usefull to check disk velocity using:
hdparm -Tt /dev/sda
changing sda to your settings (taked from df -h output).

top is also a nice tool to check resources

Most of these commands must be invoked as root.

I don't know about Red Hat, but if you can get the package hwloc you'll find this really nice:

sudo apt-get install -y hwloc

You can install inxi. Do inxi -Fxz for a nice listing.

Hi. Under /proc directory you can find a lot info about system and hardware, sometime in files, other under subdirectories.
/proc is not a 'directory' classic. It have only 'virtual' files and directories for the system. When you shutdown PC, all those files and directories are deleted. When you boot, linux create all them.
