ssh command to read server resources

what is the ssh command to read my server resources, like system operator, Ram installed, CPU etc....?

The same as on the target system, eg. to get the OS and version:
$ ssh user@remote 'uname -a'

I guess it really depends on the distro you are running. For example, red hat distros (centos, fedora, etc.) use cpuspeed. Whereas Suse uses cpufreq-info. But any command that doesn't require a TERM environment to be set you should be able to execute just (you couldn't run top or anything this way).

cpuspeed and cpufreq-info said command bash not found.
with top show the processes, the memory used, free and the cpu used or free but does not show how much speed the cpu has.

i haave linux centos 5

If you are doing it as a regular user, you more than likely do not have /usr/sbin in you environment, so you either have to include it into your path or type the entire thing out (/usr/sbin/cpuspeed). If you are unsure, on the box in question do a 'whereis cpuspeed'.

If you don't have special tools available, there's always /proc:
$ 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

For CPU speed in particular, CentOS should have /proc/cpuinfo. Here's an excerpt from mine:

processor : 3
vendor_id : GenuineIntel
cpu family : 15
model : 2
model name : Intel(R) Xeon(TM) CPU 2.66GHz
stepping : 5
cpu MHz : 2658.152
cache size : 512 KB
There's a good bit more than that in there, but it appears that this would answer your question. Note, though, that some CPUs are named without reference to the clock speed. You may need to look up the speed online and compare it to the "cpu MHz" line to see if your system is clocking in the right neighborhood.

Similarly, cat /proc/meminfo gives information about the memory, as does top.
