this is the result: -bash: /usr/sbin/cpuspeed: No such file or directory

Normally cpuinfo is world readable. I'd just stick to analyzing those proc files. Looks like you got script problems though, if that is your output.

btw its /proc/meminfo

The second quote there is odd... It looks like you copied and pasted pludi's post directly. A couple of pointers:

1) The $ is a prompt. It's not part of the command. Ignore the $ and the space following it. Just copy and paste the rest of the line. I suspect that this is why your cat commands failed.
2) In pludi's example, the lines without the $ are output. Don't copy and paste them.

These are the commands that should be copied and pasted:

Code:
cat /proc/cpuinfo | awk -F: '/MHz/ { total++; print "CPU"total": "$2}'

and
Code:
cat /proc/memifo | grep -i total

Or, if you want to see complete output, just remove the pipe and everything after it from each command.

The "code" I posted is not a shell script, but an example of the commands you can use to obtain information from /proc/* and a sample of what the output may look like. I'll color code it:
  • GREEN The shell prompt, in your case "[root@host145-236-149-62 ~]#"
  • RED The actual command, what you have to enter
  • BLUE Sample output from running the command in one of my VMs
Code:
$ cat /proc/cpuinfo | awk -F: '/MHz/ { total++; print "CPU"total": "$2}'
CPU1:  2207.699
$ cat /proc/memifo | grep -i total
MemTotal:        511176 kB
SwapTotal:       979956 kB

cat: /proc/memifo: No such file or directory

the other command for cpu work

Tiny error... it's "meminfo", not "memifo". Fwiw, remember to tab-complete... that can help a lot on little things like that.
