Memory of box

I have certain questions.

1) How can i see the memory of the unix box.

2) How can i see the size of the database on the box

3)can anyone suggest an article or tutorial that explains the concept of
file systems and mount point in UNIX.

4)How can i see the dblink on the server

I do not have much experience on UNIX.I am currently working on servers that have solaris 7 on them.

any help will be much appreciated

1. Running:
Code:
/usr/platform/`arch -k`/sbin/prtdiag -v

Will report much memory is installed on your system.

2. I will leave a dba to answer that one (I am thinking how you define what the size of a database is, its space in memory, the size of all the data and index files?)

3. The man pages for mount, mount_ufs, mount_nfs, etc. will help as will this faq.

4. I will leave a dba to answer this one ?

prtconf -pv | grep banner      : system model
psrinfo -pv                          :processor info
