Finding out hardware specifications

What is the command for finding out specifics about the running hardware? In HP-UX I'd use cstm (or xstm); what does OpenVMS use?

Specifically, I want to find out the resident memory in DIMMs and DIMM sizes in the system.

Thanks!

Re: Finding out hardware specifications

There's no generic mechanism I'm aware of, short of the classic "open the box and look" approach.

That written, specific boxes DO have ways to gather this information, and there CAN be ways to gather the FRU information directly from OpenVMS, or from the console.

Which VAX, Alpha or Integrity server box(es) are we discussing here?

The servers are HP Integrity rx3600 machines running OpenVMS 8.3-1H1.

SHOW MEMORY /PHYSICAL should give the total.
I know of nothing other than the console (or
inspection) to get the details.

Re: Finding out hardware specifications

If opening the box for a look is out of the question, then:

Shell> info all

or

Shell> info mem

Though this approach requires the box to be down.

Here's the manual (with the description of the memory configuration and the DIMM banks) for the rx3600 box:

I don't have an Integrity box handy to check the logs, but the other spot to look for these sorts of general details (and I don't know if the DIMM bank listings are available here) is in the output of the ANALYZE /ERROR /ELV command, in the configuration information in the error log.

hi,

you might also try

$ anal/sys
sda> clue config

...or if you use hp sim the reports from the insight manager agents are quite detailed.

fwiw
