Question Verify Hardware installed HP-UX11

Hi - Basic question from newbie

I need to find out how to verify hardware installed on HPUX server. Mid-range server - as in i need to prove to customer that a specific cpu is installed, so much memory is installed, etc.

A combination of dmesg and sam (sys admin tool) should provide you with what you need.

You might like to try the following:
. $HOME/.profile
/opt/ignite/bin/print_manifest > $RECOVERYDIR/`hostname`/manifest.txt
echo >> $RECOVERYDIR/`hostname`/manifest.txt
echo "Non Default Kernel Parameters" >> $RECOVERYDIR/`hostname`/manifest.txt
echo >> $RECOVERYDIR/`hostname`/manifest.txt
/usr/sbin/kctune -Sd >> $RECOVERYDIR/`hostname`/manifest.txt
mailx -s "Manifest for `hostname`" $Operations_reports <  $RECOVERYDIR/`hostname`/manifest.txt

$Operations_reports - refers to an email distribution list.
$RECOVERYDIR - refers to a location on the file system.

Hope that helps some. Smilie

ioscan -k -is the typical place to start, this provides list of all hardware
dmesg -is the easiest way to get physical memory

SAM is also a great way to get the overview.

Some typical programatic specifics are below.
PROC_SPEED=`echo itick_per_usec/D | adb -k /stand/vmunix /dev/kmem |awk -F: 'NR>1 {print $2}'`
NU_PROC=`echo "runningprocs/D" | adb -k /stand/vmunix /dev/kmem |awk -F: 'NR>1 {print $2}'`
MODEL=`model|awk -F/ '{print $3}'`
MEM=`echo "phys_mem_pages/D"| adb -k /stand/vmunix /dev/kmem |awk -F: 'NR>1 {print$2}'`

The trouble with dmesg is that if the box has been up for a while the boot messages may no longer be available via dmesg. Also HP has the pstat system calls to obtain info from the kernel. A non-root user can use them and they are safer than running adb on the kernel. For an example of a perl script see: Obtain Memory on HP UNIX.

Here's a script that will tell you the info:

# Name:
# cpumem
# Purpose:
# List the CPU & memory particulars of a HP-UX 11i v1 server.
#@(#) PR

nodename=$(uname -n)
ncpu=$(echo processor_count/D |adb /stand/vmunix /dev/kmem |tail -n 1 |awk '{print $2}')
mhz=$(echo itick_per_tick/D |adb /stand/vmunix /dev/kmem |tail -n 1 |awk '{print $2/10000 " MHz"}')
mb=$(echo phys_mem_pages/D | adb /stand/vmunix /dev/kmem |tail -n 1 |awk '{print $2/256 " MB"}')

echo "$nodename $model ${ncpu} $mhz $mb"
