What exact version and flovor of UNIX are you using. There are different utilities which are specific to an OS to give system information. In Solaris, dmesg will give a lot of info, as will prtdiag. Read the man page on them, the path to prtdiag has a hardware dependancy. mpstat will give processor info.
