Processor and RAM command line question


Hi there,

I was wondering if there are commands that returns what processor and how much RAM a solaris (sparc & intel) machine has - sort of like a kdmconfig command on intel but tells you what processor and how much RAM the machine has instead of video cards etc.

Thanks,
yxonks

Sorry I should have said...

I need to know the exact processor e.g Intel Pentium III 597 MHz , also "free" is given as "not found"

I'm doing this remotely so that why I can't simplely look inside the machines

Thanks,
yxonks - {solaris newbie}

I'm not totally sure but you can try cat /proc/cpuinfo or browse the /proc directory for a file that might point to your cpu information.

Hey yxonks,
I am not too familiar with X86 Solaris, on sparc you can run 'prtdiag' which will output info on your box, however I am not sure if this is availiable on X86.
You can also try running an explorer (a sun package - does it come with X86?) which will gather all your hardware and software/patch details and combine it into a single explorer file (from which you can examine for your hardware specs)

Here are some helpful commands that might get you what you need:

/usr/sbin/prtconf
/etc/swap -s

prtdiag is for sun4u processors only.
Solaris doesn't store system information in /proc like linux does. It only stores process information in /proc.
