How to see hardware details like name and type of processor? Solaris, Linux , AIX , HP-UX

Most of the times people working on remote terminals with a particular server really interested to know the hardware details like name of vendor and type of the processor etc.


Here are some useful commands which helps users of this kind

Solaris : 
     1./usr/sbin/prtdiag
               2./usr/platform/`uname -i`/sbin/prtdiag

Linux : 
              1./usr/local/sbin/dmidecode | grep CPU grep processor /proc/cpuinfo
              2.hwinfo
              3.cat /proc/cpuinfo | more (or)  
              4. cpuid | more
              5.grep "model name" /proc/cpuinfo
Note : required packages should be installed before executing it. and path should be properly set.

AIX
            prtconf

HP-UX:
               1.machinfo (does not work on 11.11)
               2.model 
               3.ioscan
               4.dmesg
               5.adb
               6.stm (from the SupportPlus CDROM) 
               7.bdf (like most vendors' df)
               8.getconf
               9.machinfo (11.23+)
              10.print_manifest

P.S : After finished this post I got a beautiful website to know the equivalent commands in many Unix flavors

Who ever writes Inappropriate/Vulgar comments to context, generally want to be anonymous …So I hope U r not the one like that?
For lazy logs u can at least use Name/URL option which don’t even require any sign-in, good thing is that it can accept your lovely nick name also and URL is not mandatory too.
Thanks for your patience
