prtdiag in x86?

Hi Everyone,

On Sparc based machines I go to /usr/platform/<platform name>/sbin/ and run prtdiag. It gives a basic hardware diagram of the box incuding # of processors, speed of processors, amt of RAM etc etc.

But on X86 machines the prtdiag is not available. Besides
/var/adm/messages and dmesg is there a command or commands to bring up the hardware info that prtdiag does.

Thanks in advance.

"psrinfo -pv" outputs #processors, speed of the processor(s) and "prtconf" shows the physical memory installed on the system along with attached devices.

Not exactly prtdiag, but there is prtpci in Solaris 10.
