Re: Commands to obtain BIOS & Processor Info in HP-UX

Shalom,

PA-RISC, model, gives you the model number.

cstm mstm or xstm can give you some of the information you seek.

4-7 is probably only available on a running machine if you have installed PSP for HP-UX. That ships with additional utilities that let you query the machine.

You can take the model information to http:/docs.hp.com and get more specific information on your system, but that route may not meet the exact criteria of your question.

Re: Commands to obtain BIOS & Processor Info in HP-UX

hi,

for newer servers you should be able to get it from the diagnostics if installed

#echo "selclass qualifier cpu;info;wait;il" | cstm

for older PA servers you needed to reboot the box to PDC level and check in the informtion menu there

Re: Commands to obtain BIOS & Processor Info in HP-UX

Hi Ryan,

hp-ux servers does not have BIOS, but firmware.

For Integrity servers or even for PA servers if running 11.31 you can use

# machinfo

to get all the details.

for (7) use "setboot"


For PA servers you can use

# echo "selclass qualifier cpu;info;wait;il"|/usr/sbin/cstm

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: Commands to obtain BIOS & Processor Info in HP-UX

Hi,

PA-RISC machine
use print_manifest
For
Itanium machines
machinfo

or third party software like nickel or cfg2html

>>Can somebody help provide the cstm command required?
for memory we can use cstm like this
# echo "selclass qualifier memory;info;wait;infolog" | /usr/sbin/cstm
or type cstm at command prompt you will get cstm> prompt then type help

for more info check man cstm

Re: Commands to obtain BIOS & Processor Info in HP-UX

Hi Ryan,

You can fetch the data from MP.
---------------------------------------------
MP>CM
MP>CM>DF
form the above select Processor Module.
---------------------------------------------
On PA systems you run cstm/mstm and get the information specific to CPU by running info tool or expert tool.
---------------------------------------------
On IA Systems you can run machinfo or cstm/mstm and get the information specific to CPU by running expert tool.
---------------------------------------------
if you are running HPUX 11iv2 Sep 2006 or above
you can get the information from HP System Management Home Page.

Re: Commands to obtain BIOS & Processor Info in HP-UX

For Processor Hyper Thread enabled:
This is applicable only for IA systems with HPUX 11iv3
If you are system is capable of Hyper Threading
Then you can see that through

setboot command, it will list the Hyperthreading status.

and also you can check one of the kernel tunable value

kctune lcpu_attr.

Thanks
