unix

how do I find information about the unix
server my database is on?

Is there a command that I could use to find out which class of machine, how much memory,
no of cpu's, disk space it has?

Any advise will be appreciated.

Re: unix

HI
use:
bdf - filesystem space
model - machine
uname -a : OS information
ioscan -fn : hardware
swlist - software

Re: unix


xstm is the best tool to use for all of these. Its part of the Online Diagnostics (which should be installed on your server). Its in /usr/sbin. Its a GUI so export your DISPLAY variable then run it. It will give you a graphical picture (icons) for all your hardware; memory, cpu's, disks. you can double click on any of them for exact info on each one (size etc.)

Re: unix

Once again:
dmesg - will show you few nice information,
and if You have installed Ignite-UX there is fine command:
#/opt/ignite/bin/print_manifest
which give You a lot of information at once.

Re: unix

Thanks for this information it is proving to be quite useful. I am just comparing 2 machines.
1 seems to a S class and the other a R390. I need to scan this site to see what the spec differences are for these 2 machines.
