Query system info on AIX 5


I need to know how to retrieve system information on AIX 5; namely, the amount of physical RAM and the info about the processor(s). For Solaris, you can run "prtconf -v | head -2" to get the RAM info and "psrinfo -v" to get CPU info. For Linux, they are "cat /proc/meminfo" and "cat /proc/cpuinfo" respectively. Are there equivalent commands for AIX 5?

Its even easier in a partitioned environment. You can get all of the info for every partition right from the HMC.
