Shell script for multiple OS

Hi, i need a script that will give as much system info such as CPU usage, partition info, mem usage, etc.. from multiple OS's, FreeBSD, AIX, HP-UX. I only know SCO unix and dont know the commands on the other OS's. If someone has a script they can share or has these commands that would be great. Thanks for the help in advance.

I don't intend to be unhelpful but I really think you should find out how to perform these information gathering tasks on each of the target systems yourself.

Usually information about a running system is displayed using individual utilities. These utilities would have to be installed on all of the target systems. Unfortunately these utilities often use different syntax on each platform.

The good news is that utilities intended to display system information almost always obtain that information from pseudo files in the /proc directory.

This might be going in an opposite direction...but it sounds like you might want to check out a personal favorite program of mine: Conky! It supports Linux and BSD flavors...
