Re: /proc counterpart in hp-ux

hi,

/proc is only for linux and not in unix generally.

If you want to check hardware config, hpux does better.

disk
# ioscan -funC disk

tape
# ioscan -funC tape

To check entire config including firmware version etc
# echo "Map SelAll Information ; wait InfoLog Done Exit OK" | cstm | more

Re: /proc counterpart in hp-ux

Hi:

No, the '/proc' filesytem isn't implemented on HP-UX. One wishes.

It would be helpful to know exactly what you want to do in order to provide a better answer.

Regards!

Re: /proc counterpart in hp-ux

Most of what /proc provides on Linux can be got at some other way on HP-UX (except seeing into a processes environment which I always thoughy of as a security issue anyway).

What are you trying to accomplish?

Re: /proc counterpart in hp-ux

Modulo the answers to some of the followup questions asked, a common means by which information is retrieved would be the pstat family of system calls. You can start with man pstat and go from there.

Re: /proc counterpart in hp-ux

/proc also exists on solaris, although it's not the same proc as on linux. in linux the /proc does more.

if you think /proc can be replaced by ioscan, you are sadly mistaken. /proc contains hw info, all process info, info on the vm etc. it allows you to easily get info and parse it, simply with 'cat', it doesn't cost you anything. it will also allow you to adjust settings for some fields, changing the kernel/module settings on the fly using a simple 'echo', simple, yet efficient - hmm, yes, two things hpux hasn't heard of...

Re: /proc counterpart in hp-ux

Hi i think /proc is a goodway of getting system information and details about your machine, i was just hoping if there is also a particular directory in hp-ux where it stores its system details and can be viewed by anyone.:)

Re: /proc counterpart in hp-ux

As mentioned earlier, there is no /proc here. You need to use various commands and syscalls to know the details.
