You could check to see if the software is loaded but that doesn't mean it is being used. You may also miss the software (Solaris has it's own - DiskSuite but many use the Veritas Volume Manager). Each OS will be different so the easiest way to see it is to use df -k.

Veritas commands that may help you: vxprint, vxstat, vxdisk list.
DiskSuite (Solaris only): metastat

I'm sure the commands to check on AIX, HP-UX, and others are completely different - which is why df -k is used.

       ruptime - show host status of local machines

       ruptime [ options ] [ machinename ]

       The  command  gives  a  status  line  like  for each machine on the local network.  If a machinename is given, the status of only the named
       machine is given.  These status lines are formed from packets broadcast by each host on the network once a minute.

       Machines for which no status report has been received for 5 minutes are shown as being down.

       -a   Users idle an hour or more are not counted unless this option is specified.

       -d   Display only those hosts that are considered down.

       -l   Sort the status list by load average.  If more than one sort option is given, uses the last one.

       -r   Show only hosts that are up and running.

       -t   Sort the status list by uptime.  If more than one sort option is given, uses the last one.

       -u   Sort the status list by number of users.  If more than one sort option is given, uses the last one.

       -nn  Show only those hosts with nn or more users.

       Because the daemon sends its information in broadcast packets it generates a large amount of network traffic.  On large networks the  extra
       traffic	may  be  objectionable.   Therefore,  the  daemon is disabled by default.  To make use of the daemon for both the local and remote
       hosts, remove the comment symbols (#) from in front of the lines specifying in the file.

       If the daemon is not running on a remote machine, the machine may incorrectly appear to be down when you use the command to  determine  its
       status.	See the reference page for more information.

       If  a  system  has  more  than 40 users logged in at once, the number of users displayed by the command is incorrect.  Users who login to a
       machine after that point fail to increment the user count that appears in the output of the command.  This is due to the maximum size limit
       of an Ethernet packet, which is 1500 bytes, and the fact that the daemon must broadcast its information in a single packet.
